WILKES-BARRE TWP. -- Township council on Monday voted to take out a tax anticipation note for $150,000 at 1.48 percent interest rate with Councilman John Jablowski Jr. abstaining from the vote.
Township Assistant Solicitor Samuel Sanguedolce said the note amount allows the township to operate while waiting for predicted 2013 tax revenue.
Also, council voted unanimously to authorize the creation of a new zoning map by Penn Eastern for $2,500 after Zoning Officer Tom Zedolik told the council that the township needed a new one because the current map was created in 2002. He said there have been numerous changes in zoning over the past 10 years.
It should be done, Zedolik said.
