Council Discusses Budget Proposals

News Staff's picture

Several town organizations met last Wednesday, March 4, with the Township Council and manager Barry Lewis to discuss their requested budgets for the upcoming year.

The roughly two hour meeting was broken up into three sections, focused on Senior, Youth and Leisure Services (SYLS); Department of Public Works; Engineering, Water, and Sewer; and the Police Department. Those departments, exclusive of general debt and the library, account for about 75 percent of the annual budget, and over 90 percent of the capital budget, which is why the Council and manager focused on them prior to finalizing the 2020 budget. During the past few years, the meeting between the Council and department heads had not been open to the public. This year, the meeting was open, though no residents attended.
