The Board of Supervisors approved the 2023 budget, as well as a continuation of the current tax rate, during the December 8 meeting.
The budget supports necessary infrastructure upgrades and a series of projects that improve the overall quality of life in the Township. The fiscally sound budget simultaneously pursues value-enhancing community assets while advancing critical infrastructure needs which add value to the Township and its stakeholders. It also keeps the existing tax rates for the General Fund and continues the practices that have earned Cranberry a Aaa Moodys Rating.
The budget balances the infrastructure needs including improving water, sewer, solid waste, and stormwater projects. The budget also accounts for high-quality maintenance of 136 miles of Township-owned roads, as well as the next phase of work on the ongoing Freedom Road expansion project.
But it isn’t all about Township operations, as the budget includes several carefully vetted capital projects aimed at upgrading and expanding the quality of life in the community.
