2016 FIRE PROTECTION TAX
Shamokin Dam Borough residents & businesses will notice a change in their 2016 real estate bill. The 2015 tax rate was a flat 11.5 millage rate, which 2 mills of real estate were designated for fire protection. In the fall of 2015, due to the increasing costs to operate fire & emergency services, Borough Council restructured the real estate tax system. The restructuring appears on your tax bill as 10 mils real estate tax and 3 mils as fire protection. Total millage is 13.00, an increase of 1.5 mills. The tax structure is reviewed on an annual basis during the budget planning process.

PANDA HUMMEL STATION POWER PLANT
The proposed natural gas fired power plant at the former Sunbury Generation plant site is now under construction. The construction from start to finish will take approximately two years. Along with a construction project of this size, there will be increased traffic near the site, especially along the old trail. There also will be a steady flow of deliveries to the site, some in the form of “super loads”, which are very large special permitted type loads, some in excess of 500,000 lbs (250 tons). There has been a community information contact system setup for any questions or concerns.
