Chadds Ford budget for 2020

Chadds Ford Township now has a budget for 2020 and, as previously reported, taxes will hold steady. Supervisors passed the budget during their Dec. 17 work session.

The budget is balanced with revenues and expenses anticipated to be $1.145 million. Township property tax millage rates remain at 0.882 mils for properties in a hydrant zone and 0.787 if outside of such a zone.

Total township property taxes include the hydrant tax at 0.095 mils, 0.280 mils for the open space fund, 0.012 mils for the Rachel Kohl Library, and 0.495 mils for the general fund. (A mil is a tax oo $1 for every $1,000 in assessed property value.)

The supervisors’ next meeting will be the state-mandated reorganization meeting on Monday, Jan. 6.
