Council Adopts Eighth Consecutive Budget with No Tax Increase
Municipal taxes will not increase for the eighth year in a row, under the budget adopted by Cherry Hill Township Council on September 23, 2019.
The FY 2020 budget continues to invest in roads, public safety, historic properties, technology upgrades, recreation, and eco-friendly upgrades to municipal facilities.
“For the past eight years, I have worked to uphold my commitment to the hard-working families of Cherry Hill to run the town efficiently– while keeping my promise to protect and preserve the character and integrity of our community and our neighborhoods,” said Mayor Chuck Cahn. “Once again we have proposed a budget that commits funds to the services and initiatives that matter to the residents of Cherry Hill. These include investments into public safety, township roadways, recreational facilities, historic properties, open space, programming for children and seniors, and government accessibility.”
Mayor Cahn emphasized the importance of balancing the Township’s economic interests with the needs of its neighborhood and residents.
Cahn cited several factors that have contributed to the town’s financial stability, including a strong tax ratable base, strategic redevelopment throughout town, savings on areas such as employee healthcare and continued efforts to control municipal debt.
“Council is proud to deliver Cherry Hill taxpayers a budget that is both fiscally responsible and provides the best possible programs and services,” said Council President David Fleisher. “Together with the Mayor, we remain committed to the kind of innovative thinking and smart money-management that will stabilize municipal taxes now and in the future.”
