On December 7, 2015, the Board of Supervisors of New Britain Township adopted a 2016 Budget.
The Budget provides for NO INCREASE in Real Estate Tax millage rates and NO INCREASE in the 2016 Earned Income Tax. The 2016 Budget proposes Real Estate tax millage at a total of 12.0625 mills and the Earned Income Tax at the total rate of 1.025% for General Fund purposes (1% shared 50/50 with CBSD and 0.025% dedicated to NBT Open Space)
6.8125 mills for General Public Services
1.25 mills for Fire Protection Services
0.5 mills for Emergency Medical Services
1.25 mills for Park & Recreation Services
0.5 mills for Capital Infrastructure & Debt Service
1.25 mills for Public Works Building & Debt Service
0.5 mills for Highway Equipment Maintenance & Replacement
The Township has many Funds used for specific purposes. Some of these Funds are operating accounts for normal budgetary expenditures. Some are accounts set up for future capital purchases. Some Funds contain monies dedicated to specific purposes.
Funds that have been designated as operating funds include General Fund and Park and Recreation Fund. Routine expenditures come out of these funds.
Funds that are used to build reserves for future capital purchases, or in the event of unforeseen emergencies include Park and Recreation Capital, General Reserve, Capital Equipment, Highway Equipment.
Funds that are used for dedicated purposes include Street Light, Fire, EMS, Land Preservation, Liquid Fuels, Fiduciary, Capital Infrastructure Debt Service and Public Works Debt Service Funds. Monies in these accounts are either distributed to other entities (such as local fire and ambulance companies), are temporary developers' escrows, or are used for specific purposes (such as payment of debt service, street light maintenance, road maintenance and land preservation).
Presently, New Britain Township is working on several possibilities for additional land preservation. The Land Preservation Fund is used for purchasing Open Space Conservation Easements and development rights. Keeping a healthy balance is critical to maintain the ability to act on a property when occasion arises.
