McDonald council voted 7-0 tonight to advertise a $965,206 budget for 2013 that holds the overall property tax rate at 40.75 mills for the fourth year.

The borough's annual contribution to Heritage Public Library was increased from about $5,250 to $7,000 a year, finance chairman Pat Powell said.

The portion of taxes dedicated to debt service was lowered by a half-mill, while the fire tax was increased by a half-mill, mainly to expand the sole paid firefighter job from part-time to full-time.
