Tax Collector Salary Increases, Health Benefits Cut

Parkland School Board Directors approved an average $7,000 raise for Upper Macungie, South Whitehall and North Whitehall tax collectors.

 

Parkland School Board Directors approved a "fairly substantial" salary increase for the three area tax collectors Tuesday night.

Director of Business Administration John Vignone said the significant increase was due to health benefits being cut from the compensation package. He estimated the salary for North Whitehall, South Whitehall and Upper Macungie tax collectors was increased by about $7,000 each.

Every four years, directors set the salary of elected tax collectors. Directors said Tuesday the decision to reduce benefits and increase the salary was made after "thoroughly vetting" the information during workshops.

The salaries will be in effect January 2014 - December 2017.
