I am urging all Exeter Borough taxpayers to attend the Exeter Borough Council 2013 budget meeting on Tuesday, December 4, at 6 p.m. at the borough building.
At a budget meeting held this past Tuesday, it was discussed that there is a budget shortfall well over $400,000. If this budget is passed in its present form and no expenses are decreased (i.e. no changes to police, fire or public works services), it will be necessary for Council to increase taxes 100% for the coming year in order to meet expenses.
Anticipated revenues are projected to be $1.3 million and anticipated spending is in excess of $1.7 million.
Hope to see you at the meeting.
