During the past year, a lot has been going on in West Whiteland: numerous Township projects in progress, an accelerated pace of development and construction, and myriad of other issues that are part and parcel with local government services.
Now we are preparing for a new year through the budget process. Over the course of the previous five Board meetings, each piece of the 2019 budget has been presented. The preliminary budget is presented to you now in its entirety and represents the Township’s plan for continuing to improve services and, to the extent we can, manage development and its impact over the next year.
Staff and consultants have completed various plans and analyses over the last few years to lay the groundwork for ongoing financial stability and service improvements. In addition to highlighting key components and analyzing the fiscal impact of the budget, this budget message recaps the status of the plans and the context they provide for the 2019 budget.
