Property taxes in North Coventry Township should remain the same at 1.6 mils based on the 2011 budget. The township Board of Supervisors approved the use of $109,982 of surplus funds to fill the budget gap.

The budget is pending negotiations with the police union which provides a 3% raise for police and health insurance for all township employees with no employee contribution required.

Township officials expect a $10,000 shortfall of revenue due to property tax appeals and an additional $10,000 reduction in earned income tax revenue
