2018 Budget Breakdown

Dover Township is proud to present the highlights of the 2018 Budget. No tax increase is projected in this budget. The Board of Supervisors has not increased real estate taxes since 2008, when the millage rate was increased from .828 to 1 whole mil of tax. This means on a $100,000 assessed home, we receive $100.00 in real estate tax to use towards the General Fund Operations. Those operations include Parks and Recreation, Fire, Highway, Solid Waste Collection (Leaf and Brush Collection), Planning and Zoning, Police and Administration. The breakout of your $100 in real estate taxes is shown in the chart below:
