The Blairsville Borough Council met last night and approved their final budget for 2019.
The budget contains a tax increase of .3 mills for Blairsville Property Owners, which would be about $23-$24 for the average home in the borough.
Borough council member Ab Dettorre said the tax increase was minimal, but the reason for it is because of the large financial hits the town took over the last year.
