Bedford Twp. board trims $85,000 for 2013-14 budget


The Bedford Township Board approved a fiscal year 2013-14 operating budget of $4,257,264 at its regular meeting last week. This compares with estimated spending of $4,342,738 for 2012-13.

Planned spending for next year is $123,000 less than projected revenue, and includes $65,000 for a new master plan that Supervisor Greg Stewart said he would like to begin work on.

The budget also reflects the 2 percent raises approved for township employees, with the exception of elected officials, in May of last year.
