Budget talks to begin in Kennett Twp.

The Kennett Township supervisors will meet Wednesday at 7 p.m. and start looking at capital project priorities for the 2024 budget.

The board, which meets on the first and third Wednesdays, canceled the Sept. 6 meeting out of an abundance of caution because the 13-day manhunt for escaped convict Danelo Cavalcante included parts of Kennett Township in the search perimeter.

The supervisors will discuss the operating budget on Oct. 4, and then look at both draft operating and capital budgets at the Oct. 18 meeting, according to a report by Amy Heinrich, the township finance and HR director and treasurer, that will be discussed at Wednesday’s meeting.

The board has public comment at the beginning of each meeting to discuss items on the agenda.

To read Heinrich’s report and other items that will be discussed at Wednesday’s meeting, go to kennett.pa.us and search for public meeting documents.

Other topics at Wednesday’s meeting include possible votes on the Planning Kennett Connections study, the rail transportation assistance program, and the naming of streams within the township.
