Marlboro Council Adopts $32.6 Million Budget
Tax rates will go up while spending decreases in the township.
The Town Council voted Thursday night to adopt the 2012 municipal budget of $32.6 million.
The township is seeing a $350,000 budget decrease from the 2007 budget of $32.95 million. However, the tax rate will increase from 31 to 33.8 cents, which the administration contributes to revenue decreases.
“Our spending is going down, but we have a revenue problem," Mayor Jon Hornik said in February.
2012 capital improvements budget will include further road and sidewalks improvements, as well as Station Road Phase 2 and the preservation of farmland and the acquisition of open space or recreation.
