Don’t forget Valentines day this month...

January was busy for the Board as they completed 2023-2024 budget work. By consensus the board approved payroll increases for employees and additional capital expenditures related to the South Fire Station. We have submitted a grant request to the state for some critical work at the Day Park including repairs to the boat launch and a fence between the Dry Dock Road and the park facilities. Contact me for a complete list of items submitted. In case we do not get the grant money, the township will need to move forward on at least the two items above along with the planting of several trees in the park area.

The final budget will be available on the website after Friday, February 10.

As a reminder, the Annual Budget Hearing is held on Tuesday, March 7 at 6 PM in the CSB. The Annual Meeting of the Electors follows immediately afterwards.

The February Board meeting is Tuesday, February 21. The draft Agenda will post after 2 PM on February 16. The Board package and final Agenda will post after after 2 PM on Saturday, February 18.

The Planning Commission meets February 14 at 7 PM and the Zoning Board of Appeals on Wednesday February 15 at 6 PM. Please monitor this website for agenda items.
