Pennington Borough announces new budget process

Pennington Borough to kick-off the 2022 municipal budget process with community town hall budget meetings

At the Borough Council Meeting on Monday, September 13, Mayor James Davy and the Borough Council approved a new municipal budget process for Pennington that is designed to maximize community input, enhance budget transparency, and create a true citizen’s budget for Pennington Borough.

According to Ken Gross, finance chair of the Borough Council, Pennington’s 2022 budget process [began] on Tuesday, September 22 with a publicly noticed zoom meeting with chairpersons of the Borough’s boards, commissions, and committees.

This meeting will be followed by a virtual Budget Town Hall with Pennington’s taxpayers on Tuesday, Wednesday* September 29 at 7pm. Mayor Davy added, “the purpose of these town hall meetings is to hear from citizens about their budget ideas and priorities for the government that serves them.”

As the 2022 budget is developed, the Mayor and Council will conduct public work sessions to deliberate on budget requests and allocations. Prior to the introduction, public hearing, and adoption of the budget in April 2022, another budget town hall meeting with the community will be held to discuss Borough Council’s budget priorities and gain additional public input.
