In 1997, the Finance Department disbursed more than $35,000,000 in Budget Appropriations through the processing of more than 4,000 vouchers. In addition, the Department prepares bi-weekly payroll for over 375 full time employees as well as part time and seasonal employees, and prepares all State and Federal returns.
In 1997, the Finance Department sold $4,000,000 of one year bond anticipation notes at a rate of 3.92% for the purpose of funding the new Rodda Community Building Addition. If the note is paid back within a ten year period, the Township will avoid the expense of a costly bond sale.
The Finance Department has maintained an in-house computer for its budget and accounting system since 1995. In 1997, the Finance Department completed the computer networking of the main administration building with the addition of the Township Clerk and the Township Manager's offices. The next leg of the project is to include other buildings in the municipal complex such as the Library and Police Department.
The Tax Office is the central receiving agency for all fees collected for licenses, fees, permits, fines, etc. In addition, this office handles the billing, tax collection and tax searches for more than 12,000 properties in the Township. Inquiries for related information from residents, attorneys, realtors, banks, mortgage companies and others are responded to by this office, which is managed by the Tax Collector.
