Budget

Budget Overview

Each year, the Union Township Board of Supervisors is charged with the responsibility of enacting a balanced budget. The budget summarizes the revenues and expenditures the Township Administration expects to encounter during the course of a fiscal year. While the Administration and Board of Supervisors strive to ensure that the Township does not go over budget, there can be unforeseen circumstances that arise during the course of the year.

Budget Process

Beginning in August, the Township Manager and Board of Supervisors outline and prepare the next year’s budget. The budget is broken up by revenue, expenditures and fund reserve, which make up the total available monies for the year.

 

The Township’s main revenues come from real estate taxes, local enabling taxes, licenses and permits, fines, interest and rent, and state shared revenue.

Budget expenditures are broken up by department and include all expenses, including insurance, workers compensation and purchases.

Audits

Each year the Township is audited by independent certified public accountants. Previous audits are available for viewing as PDF documents below.  The Department of Community and Economic Development requires annual audits be filed by April 1 of the following year.
