Budgets

Annual Municipal Budgetary Process

In accordance with State statutes, the Township and Authority enact annual balanced budgets no later than December 31st, establishing the authorizing authority for expending public funds for the provision of municipal services in the forthcoming year.  Those services (including public safety, maintenance and management of parks and recreational areas and services, code enforcement and community/economic development, management of streets and public access, sanitary sewer, and stormwater infrastructure, and general public administration/communication) are provided through a complement of real estate and earned income taxes and fees for public services meant to create self-sufficiency of the Township’s operations and provide financial reserves to weather emergencies and plan for long-term infrastructure management.

Overall, the budgetary process is a complex, comprehensive, public evaluation of the costs to provide necessary public services and the financial needs to adequately meet public demand relative to those services.  The Township’s budgetary process begins annually in the summer and involves a series of publicly advertised budget workshops during September through November, concluding with formal public presentation and draft approval for advertisement of a public inspection period for the budget in November and final adoption in December.  Copies of those documents are available on the respective Township Meeting Agendas.  The Authority traditionally presents a draft public budget for sanitary sewer and stormwater activities in August, and final presentation and adoption in November.
