The appeal brought by the Perkiomen Valley School District has been dismissed and the Board of Assessment of Appeals decision to grant the Skippack Fire Company a 100% tax exempt status has been upheld. The school district’s appeal was dismissed today by the Honorable Melissa S. Sterling.

The Skippack Fire Company wishes to thank all our expert witnesses testifying on our behalf, as well as the fire company members who testified or were prepared to testify in the event they were needed. We would like to thank our lawyers Rowan Keenan and Thomas Keenan with KEENAN, CICCITTO & ASSOCIATES, LLP. in Collegeville, Pennsylvania.

Finally, we would like to again thank our community and supporters from Skippack Township to those around the county and state for all the kind words of encouragement and support through this eight-year process. We know who you are and appreciate you all.

As a 100% volunteer organization, the Skippack Fire Company remains committed to serving Skippack Township and surrounding communities, whenever the alarm sounds. We are appreciative of each member of our fire company and the unique talents and sacrifices they bring to our organization and community. On behalf of the officers and members of the Skippack Fire Company, we wish you and yours a happy, safe, and healthy Thanksgiving holiday. Cheers!
