It is very important to always be looking into the future with either a 5 or 10 year forecast. Using various simulations, either with current tax revenue and annualized expenses, or with the anticipated revenue deductions and an average consumer price index, we can visually see where the Township might be financially in the future. By utilizing this forecast, I can financially advise the Trustees on the yearly fiscal budget.
The first priority is always the safety and security of the Township community. In advising the Trustees on financial matters this is, and always will be, my first concern. Expenses not directly related to the safety and security of our community should be analyzed to see where cost savings can be had by either making short term cuts or by looking into shared services with City or County Departments.
