Chadds Ford passes budget

Chadds Ford Township has its budget for 2019. Supervisors passed the plan during its workshop session Friday, Dec. 28. The budget calls for spending and revenue to be slightly more than $1.1 million.

That represents an 8.87 percent increase in both over 2018 but taxes remain steady at 0.882 mills for properties in a hydrant zone and 0.787 if outside of such a zone. Total taxes include the hydrant tax, plus taxes for general government, open space funds and for the Rachel Kohl Library.

Supervisors also voted to spend $12,160 on new parking lot lighting at the township building. The new lighting will be an LED diode system.

“That’s $12,000 well spent,” said Supervisors’ Chairman Frank Murphy.

The board’s next meeting is Monday, Jan. 7 for the state-mandated re-organization. The next regular meeting will be Wednesday, Jan. 9. The township will also hold its annual Volunteer Appreciation and Open House on Friday, Feb. 22 from 6-8 p.m.
