Officials begin budget process

By AUBRIE GEORGE | The Marlton Telegram

With budget season around the corner, township officials have begun to plan which capital projects are a priority this year.

At last night’s council meeting, Township Manager Tom Czerniecki gave a presentation to council outlining his thoughts for what capital projects and purchases should get done under the next budget.

This year, officials are looking to put down a $75,000 down payment for a bond ordinance that will provide for about $1.7 million in capital improvement projects and purchases.

Some projects that are priorities include the installation of solar panels on township-owned buildings, technology upgrades, neighborhood safety improvements, drainage improvements in neighborhoods, sidewalk improvements, the replacement of two department of public works dump trucks and the construction of a new salt dome.
