Budgets
The annual budget is coordinated and prepared by the Finance Department and the township manager in accordance with the Pennsylvania First Class Township Code.

Budget Goal

The goal of the township budget process is to evaluate the needs and objectives of the township and to determine the feasibility of the township’s capacity to allocate revenues sufficiently to meet those needs and objectives. The budget also serves as a comprehensive document to facilitate transparency to the township residents of the costs of providing public services.
