This Day In History: 1934-01-18
The Township Council adopted the budget for 1934 at a work session. It was reduced from the year before by $673-31 to $27,941.52. Part of this cut was arrived at by reducing the Board of Health budget from $500 to $300 and lowering the Police Department budget from $3500 to $3000. among the difficulties in predicting revenues for the coming year was the fact that the State would no longer rebate part of the gasoline tax to the municipality. This was to be offset by the elimination of the State road tax. This ha amounted to $2500 in 1933.
