Presentation on proposed Earned Income Tax
At the Council worksession, on Tuesday, October 17, a presentation was given by Council President Tom Wheeler on a proposed Earned Income Tax (EIT) for Hulmeville Borough. The presentation was followed by a question and answer session with numerous good questions and comments coming from members of the public in attendance.

The U.S. is in the midst of an epidemic of opiate addiction and overdose. Overdose deaths from prescription painkillers have quadrupled since 1999. Deaths from heroin have tripled in the last five years. Pennsylvania has a higher overdose rate than most states.
The Commonwealth Prevention Alliance (CPA) realizes immediate action needs to be taken to prevent opiate abuse. We believe this website, and its content, will provide you with increased awareness, education and information on how to seek help.
