The 2018 operating budget includes an appropriation budget for all Township funds for 2018, an updated 2018-2023 capital improvement plan, and an updated five year financial forecast which projects revenue and expense outcomes through 2023. It is important to note that the legal requirement of adopting appropriations is limited to the 2018 figures only. The forecast information is for informational and decision making purposes only.
The process used to develop the 2018 Board Adopted Comprehensive Budget includes a comprehensive look at all the financial areas of the Township’s operations, levels of service, capital needs, and resource availability. The Board of Commissioners hold various public hearings in October and November where they hear from members of the public, community organizations, and Township Staff before voting on the final budget Ordinance on December 11, 2017.
