PENFIELD — Another year, another budget.
At their recent municipal meeting, Huston Township supervisors approved the 2018 budget.
The spending plan, which has no tax increase, has been advertised since last month.
Previously, Supervisor Chairwoman Nellie Bundy said taxes will remain at 11 mills. The township has held the line on taxes since the 1990s.
A copy of the proposed budget showed total revenues at $642,784 and total expenditures at $403,074.
Under correspondence, Bundy noted the supervisors received notification from P. Joseph Lehman, Inc. that inspections were done on the first Winterburn and Diamond street bridges.
Supervisor Vice Chairman Douglas E. Kalgren II said the inspections found only a few minor issues.
Supervisors said Bennett Road and Tannery Drive would be bid out the same time in January for DSA (Driving Surface Aggregate) work.
Supervisors retained certified public accountants Sharkey Piccirillo of DuBois for 2018.
Bundy announced that the township received $855.93 in the state police fines payment.
In response to a question from the audience, township secretary-treasurer Darrell J. Patton Jr. explained that the fines payment is made twice a year to the township and comes from fines as a result of traffic stops made by the state police in the township.
Kalgren said the township was ready to plow snow.
“We’re ready to go,” he said. “With the lack of snow, this is helping the budget quite a bit.”
