Cranberry Township’s budget for 2019 was approved at the December 13 meeting of Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors. The General Fund portion of the budget – the part that includes the services people normally associate with local government – is projected to come in at just under $23.5 million, a six percent increase from 2018. However, it includes no tax rate changes. The budget’s priorities adhere to Cranberry’s updated comprehensive plan. It fully funds the state-mandated police pension program and continues the fiscal practices that earned the Township Moody’s top credit rating in 2018. In addition, the Township operates five Enterprise Funds – sewer, water, trash, swimming and golf – which are financed by user fees rather than tax revenues. Their total expenses for 2019 are projected at $45.6 million.
