Carlisle approves 7 percent tax increase

Posted: Updated:
CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

Carlisle Borough Council has narrowly approved its 2013 budget Thursday night and it includes a 7 percent tax increase.

It's a new fire tax that's expected to bring in $300,000 to the borough.  That money can only be used for emergency services.

Also Thursday, council members said they'll begin working on the 2014 budget in January because early projections show a $200,000-$300,000 deficit.
