VILLAS – Voters in Town Bank rejected their fire district’s $1.3 million budget in the April 20 fire district election, but Lower Township Council approved it, at its May 17 meeting.
The budget had a zero increase over the previous year, but was rejected by a 129-to-123 vote.
Lower Township Mayor Frank Sippel said he looked over the budget and found it to be reasonable.
“We had our chief financial officer review the budget, and she had no issues, and I didn’t see anything that stood out,” Sippel said.
Council passed the original budget unanimously.
