Finnigan told Supervisors, at their November 27 meeting, that the Township was fortunate to have received $92,000 for its interest in 248 Broadhead Road, where the Colonial Regional Police and District Judge James Narlesky are based. "We'll be able to buy two trucks with that," he noted.
Steve Salvesen is concerned that performance-based raises for some Township workers will be negated by increases in health and dental insurance. "Contrary to what our President has said, insurance premiums are going up," observed the veteran Supervisor. Chairman John Diacogiannis lamented, "I hope this can turn around."
In addition to holding the line on taxes, Hanover Township residents have already seen their trash removal rates drop to about $230 per year with a single hauler contract. Residents in the East Sewer district have also seen a slight decrease in fees.
Supervisors will vote on the proposed 2013 Budget, which is posted on the Township's web page, at their December 18 meeting at the Municipal Building located at 3630 Jacksonville Road. That meeting, which starts at 7 PM, will be the Supervisors' only meeting in December.
