LINDEN - Residents in Woodward Township will see no raise in municipal taxes in 2013, as supervisors on Wednesday adopted a balanced budget that keeps taxes at 1.25 mills.
Supervisors also discussed vacancies on the planning commission and the appointment of two municipal officials.
The approved budget contained only one difference from the budget proposed at the November meeting. A separate capital reserve account had to be created to outline exactly how the township plans to allocate its $54,000 impact fee allotment.
According to Chairman Thomas Frantz, the money will be divided between road maintenance and public safety.
Solicitor Marc Drier explained the change in paperwork would allow possible auditors to easily trace where and how the impact fee was allocated.
The change in paperwork had no effect on the numbers in the budget, according to Treasurer Judith L. Carpenter.
Supervisors also approved the appointment of Justin Ulmer to a full-term position on the planning commission, as per the commission's recommendation.
According to Gary Knarr, zoning officer, the commission is seeking two individuals to fill the empty seats. Candidates will be discussed further at the commission's January meeting.
If no volunteers can be found, supervisors may be forced to shrink the commission from seven to five members.
Also at the meeting, Josh Heim was sworn in as a member of the township's fire police.
