The Millburn Township Committee introduced the $50 million 2012 Township budget at Tuesday night’s meeting.
The budget reflects an increase in operating expenses of $972,182, a capital increase of $100,000 and a revenue decrease of $4,500. For the average home, which is valued at $1,082,014, the new budget will amount to an increase in $96.87 of assessed property valuation, or 27 cents per day.
The full budget is available on the township website at http://twp.millburn.nj.us/2012-Proposed-Budget.
There will be a further detailed presentation and adoption of the budget on May 1, 2012. In the meantime, anyone with questions can email 2012budget@Millburntwp.org.
In other township business, member Sara Sherman discussed a recent walkthrough of her flood-damaged neighborhood with Township Administrator Timothy Gordon. According to township clerk Joanne Monarque, Sherman asked Gordon about the township’s emergency management plan. Gordon suggested that he meet with residents again in the future to further discuss the issue.
Also, Mayor Sandy Haimoff announced that the township has received a DOT grant for $250,000 in road improvements, and plans were discussed for the Green Fair in Taylor Park in April.
