2022 BUDGET PLAN AND MESSAGE
The 2022 Budget is balanced at $ 710,488.00.
The Board of Supervisors will resolve to set the tax millage at 2.340 mills, with all mills dedicated for General Fund purposes. This is the same tax rate set for 2021.
The road projects for 2022 will focus on maintenance. General road maintenance involving ditching, grading, graveling, and replacement of two cross pipes and installation of tile are planned. Grants have been awarded for replacement of cross pipes and addition of material on a section of Dougan Road, through Erie County Conservation’s Dirt & Gravel Roads Program. The crew will be placing millings and seal coating on 2 – 3 miles of roads, to be determined by the Board. Two miles of Wildman Road will be seal coated.
General maintenance will be performed at the park. An application will be submitted to the Hirtzel Foundation for construction of a half basketball court.
A reduced amount of financial assistance will be provided to the Greenfield Township Volunteer Fire Company. The Fire Company is in good standing. The Municipality is low on funds due to the over budgeted amount spent for Wilson Road blacktopping. Financial assistance will be reconsidered in the 2023 budget.
Financial assistance will be provided to the Hornby School Museum in the form of paying for lawn maintenance. This Historical Museum is operated by volunteers from Greenfield Township and surrounding areas.
Loan payments will be made for the purchase of the 2020 International tri-axle dump truck. Payments are scheduled for the next two years.
