Rising insurance rates have led to a tax increase in Telford. Homeowners will pay an extra 23 dollars next year in taxes. Insurance cost and other expenses led to the hike, which is just under three percent. Telford will use 692,000 dollars to redevelop its municipal park, near east Church Avenue. Telford’s will also have some renovation work done at its police station. The purchase of a police car for 15-grand is also in the budget plans. Telford Council is expected to approve the budget at its December 9th meeting.
