Woodward Township holding line on taxes

LINDEN — The Woodward Township supervisors this week approved a 2021 preliminary budget that holds a steady line on taxes at 0.514 mills and includes no major projects next year.

Final adoption is expected next month.

“It is basically the same budget as last year,” Judy Carpenter, township secretary/treasurer, said.

For properties in the township that are assessed at $100,000, the tax amounts to $51.

The full budget is on display at the township building.

The supervisors also ratified changes to the Comcast franchise agreement that was reviewed last month.

The agreement allows Comcast to pay their fees to the township within 30 days after the first, second and third quarters, and pay within 45 days of the fourth quarter.

Comcast also added that they would be willing to give the township funds for an audit.

In other business, the supervisors approved the state Department of Transportation’s replacement of the bridge over Pine Run, as they did not see any issues.

Carpenter said that the bridge was “narrow” and “older.”

Additionally, they signed a resolution concerning Moore Road, which is a new township road that gives residents additional access to the township building.

The resolution is in case of any concerns for nearby residential properties.

The next Woodward Township Supervisors meeting will be at 11 a.m. Dec. 16.
