Carroll Township Board of Supervisors announced at the December 5 meeting that they will be reluctantly raising taxes less than a mill for 2018.

The increase is necessary to compensate for the loss of revenue from the Residence at Hilltop, which gained tax exempt status in July 2016, according to the Board. The personal care facility is an affiliate of Monongahela Valley Hospital, which also maintains tax exempt status. The township is unable to financially support a legal battle with the hospital over the taxes.

Also at the meeting, two residents addressed the Board concerning an issue with dirt bikes and quads travelling through their properties. According to the residents, who have discussed the issue at previous board meetings, the trespassing riders are gaining access from an opened fence near the turnpike. Police Chief Paul Brand explained that he understands the problem, although the vehicles can be hard to pursue, and that the department continues to ask residents to alert them when the vehicles are on their property.
