On Tuesday, April 2, 2013, the Montville Township Committee
voted unanimously to introduce the 2013 municipal budget at their regularly
scheduled meeting. As introduced, the
2013 municipal budget represents an increase in spending of $487,021 or 1.7%
over the 2012 adopted budget. This has a
corresponding impact of a 3.79% increase on the municipal tax levy, which is
compliant with the State mandated tax levy cap.
All of these percentages translate to an increase in municipal taxes of
approximately $100 for the average assessed home of $528,000.
This year three distinct areas had a significant impact on
the budget, tax appeals that have been settled, which necessitate refunds to be
paid by the Township, terminal leave payouts owed to those retiring at the end
of 2012, and increases in health insurance.
The Township Committee and staff worked diligently to prepare a budget
that maintains the high level of service the Township’s residents expect, while
