#NewtownPA Supervisors Vote To Advertise - Make Public - the "Preliminary" 2024 Budget | Newtown News of Interest |

The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the advertisement of the proposed 2024 budget that included a proposed slight tax increase.

Its budgeted revenues are projected to be $14,291,936 million, an increase from the previous year, according to the proposed budget.

Meanwhile budgeted expenditures are projected to rise to $16,001,653 million. The budgeted general fund deficit is projected to decrease to $2,386,265. 

The proposed spending plan includes a tax hike of two mills for the fire protection fund and an additional mill to reduce debt service costs.

Under this plan, the typical municipal tax bill would increase to $511 for properties with average assessment.


johnmacknewtown's insight:


Deficit = $ 2,289,430; This is covered by $ 4,134,661 2023 balance.


Thus, Net Fund Balance = $ 1,845,232 (11 % of TOTAL EXPENDITURES; Good accounting practices recommend 17% to cover emergencies)
