In addition to allocating $200,000 for emergency supplies and equipment, Township debt is earmarked to be reduced by over $100,000 in the proposed budget, along with $900,000 for street repairs.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Fried was poised to propose a fifth straight municipal tax reduction “but that would not be prudent at this time.”

“It is not wise to cut taxes until we fully understand what we are facing in terms of the impact of the virus on the economy,” Mayor Fried said. “By the same token, we will do everything on our part to reduce stress on local families.
