From the Mayor's Desk
As the Mayor of Delran, I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the 2014 Municipal Budget. This year the residents will see no increase in their tax bills. We have been able to keep the municipal budget stable for the past six years. The Township Administration, Department Heads and employees have been working diligently with a very tight budget and have kept their expenditures at or below the allocated budgeted amount.
Due to the extreme winter conditions that we have encountered this year, we are allocating an additional $200,000 to the capital budget for road repairs which will not impact the residents. This has increased our total amount for road repairs to $1,000,000, which is $600,000 more than previous Councils have allocated. We will continue to try and catch up on the roads that were left delinquent over many years.
This year we have also received a grant from the County for Delran Community Park in the amount of $94,950.00. Council has agreed to allocate an additional $150,000 for improvements to the park. It will be up to Council to determine which projects will be included within the budgeted amount.
In conclusion, we are trying to do our best in these tough economic times. We strive to keep the town affordable while maintaining the excellent level of services for the residents of Delran.
