DALLAS -- There are no increases in taxes in next year's $1.14 million budget that borough council adopted Wednesday.

The property tax rate will remain at 1.28 mills. A mill is a $1 tax on every $1,000 of assessed property value.

Council also announced that a conditional-use hearing for an application submitted by Verizon Wireless to construct a celltower behind the Twin Stacks Restaurant will be held at Misericordia University on Wednesday, Jan. 16 at 6 p.m. Council's regular meeting will follow the hearing at 7:30.

The exact location at the college where the hearing and subsequent council meeting will take place will be advertised. Council's January work session will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14 at the borough building.

Borough Solicitor Jeffrey Malak said council decided to hold the hearing and council meeting at Misericordia because the borough building isn't large enough to accommodate the expected numbers that might attend.

In other business, council announced the road department would begin curbside collection of Christmas Trees the week of Jan. 7 and continue through Jan. 25.
