2021 BUDGET PLAN AND MESSAGE
The 2020 Budget is balanced at $ 712,630.00.
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 2020.
The road projects for 2021 will focus on maintenance. General road maintenance involving ditching, grading, graveling, and replacement of four crosspipes are planned. Wilson Road in Little Hope will be blacktopped. Grants have been awarded for replacement of crosspipes and addition of material on sections of Davis Road and Raymond Mills Road, through Erie County Conservation’s Dirt & Gravel Roads Program. Rohl Road is scheduled to have a seal coat over last year’s Full Depth Reclamation.
General maintenance will be performed at the park.
Financial assistance will be provided to the Greenfield Township Volunteer Fire Company. This assistance reduces the number of hours that volunteers spend fundraising, thus improving the chances of retaining the volunteers. The Fund Drive contributions have been declining over the years. Participation in fund raising events has decreased. The funds will be used to reimburse utility, building repair and maintenance expenses, and financial assistance to replace fundraising activities.
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 three years.
