From the Mayor's Desk
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Great news, we introduced the municipal budget for this year and it looks like another great year with a 0 % increase in the municipal tax. I am glad to say that we have a municipal surplus of 8 million dollars, the highest that I can remember in years. The municipal tax has remained stable since 2011,that is incredible, especially in a very unstable economy. Also since taking over the Sewer Authority on July 14, 2010 when the DSA had a cash surplus of $298,282.05, which was dangerously low and not sufficient to meet the cash flow requirements of the day to day bills and operations, 5 years later I am proud to say we have a surplus of 4.5 million dollars. We have also completed several Waste Treatment Plant Facility upgrades in that time span.
Prior to my initial term in office, Council was allocating $400,000 dollars to our road program. Since then we have been allocating $800,000 - $1,000,000 to our roads. This emphasizes the concern and importance that we, the governing body, have on maintaining the current infrastructure in Delran. This year Cleveland Ave, Main Street between Front and 3rd Streets and Fox Chase between Waterford and Beaverbrook will be repaved.
And finally, we have been very successful and continue to pursue county, state and federal grants, our team of vendors and administration have had an excellent success rate with obtaining grants, such as NJ DOT safe walks to transit, DEP site remediation, NJ DOT Municipal Aid, Community Development Block and Burlington County Community Park grants. We just received another grant for $180,000 for the next phase of our Community Park this past week.
I’m sure there will be more to come. Stay tuned.
Delran Township Mayor
