The majority of the township budget is devoted to road crew compensation and to upkeep of the roads winter, spring, summer and fall. Continuation of the 3 bid process and rigorous examination of spending requests contribute to the efficient use of taxpayers money. In addition, along with my fellow supervisors, we continue to seek opportunities for technology to enhance communication with the community and to facilitate access to information by residents seeking answers to zoning & ordinance questions and Township services. These augment current staff while maintaining/improving service levels and keeps head count low. Finally, our practice of providing access to open space properties through creation and maintenance of trails will continue to enhance quality of life and enjoyment of nature and the outdoors in all seasons. The goal is to provide good value to taxpayers in the use of their tax dollars for the maximum benefit of all residents.
