The Board of Supervisors on Thursday approved the 2020 budget, which maintains current real estate and property tax rates.
The Township’s General Fund is expected to generate $22.5 million in revenue in 2020. That will support projects to address changing public service and capital improvement needs without a tax increase.
Among those capital projects is the MSA Thruway tunnel beneath Route 228, expansion at Community Park’s Amphitheatre, as well as stormwater upgrades in the Sun Valley neighborhood and engineering work for a similar project in the Fox Run system.
A Master Plan for exterior grounds and parking at the Municipal Center will look to tie the building to the Meeder community being constructed across Rochester Road. Inside the building, the Administration area will see upgrades that promote collaboration among staff. Cyber security will also be increased to better protect information.
The budget also accounts for three new positions, including a community liaison position within the Communications Department; a new Parks/Grounds position in a division of the Public Works Department to focus on maintaining Park facilities; and a new police officer, bringing the total in the department to 33.
