The 2021 Township Manager Recommended Budget included appropriations for all Township funds for 2021 as well as an updated funded and unfunded capital project list. As one can imagine, due to the pandemic and the long-term economic shutdown, the Township’s revenues for 2020 and 2021 are anticipated to drop by millions. Therefore, the Township Manager’s Recommended Budget anticipated drawing down on General Fund reserves, suspending most capital, and adjusting some departmental fees. Meanwhile, greater demands on Police prompted a request to add three patrol officers needed to strengthen the Township’s emergency preparedness and response as well as increase police patrols in the higher density areas of the Township. Further, due to the size and scope of the Township’s infrastructure and capital budget, the need for in-house engineering / project management as well as state-of-the art GIS mapping and modeling is paramount. To address those needs, the proposed budget included adding a Project Engineer and a GIS Coordinator to the staff. Review of these requests and the larger budget occurred in November 2020. On December 7, 2020, the Radnor Township Board of Commissioners passed the 2021 Comprehensive Budget with a 5-2 vote.
