Proposed 2021 Budget Keeps Taxes And Fees Steady

Proposed 2021 Budget Keeps Taxes And Fees Steady

The Township’s proposed 2021 budget keeps real estate taxes at their current rate. The budget also leaves sewer user charges unchanged. The budget was reviewed by the Board of Supervisors at its meeting on Tuesday.

The real estate millage remains 1.223 mils, which means a residence with the median Township assessment of $429,000 will pay $524.67 in real estate taxes in 2021.

The budget is available for review at the Township Building between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. by making arrangements with staff. The budget is also available by clicking here.

Lower Gwynedd Holds Veterans Day Ceremony

For the 8th time, the Township held a ceremony, honoring veterans from Lower Gwynedd and surrounding communities on Veterans Day, starting at the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year, commemorating the time, day and year World War I ended in 1918.

It also marked the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the 70th anniversary of the commencement of the Korean War, and the 45th anniversary of the conclusion of the Vietnam War. Several of those attending spoke briefly about how appreciative they were of all those who served and continue to serve our nation and community, and that the Township honors their service, whether in the military or as members of the Township Police Department.

Due to COVID-19-related restrictions, this year’s ceremony was held at Veterans Park in Spring House. In addition to a Coast Guard Veteran who spoke briefly of his service during the Cold War, the abbreviated ceremony was attended by township supervisors, administrative staff members, police and members of the Veterans Day Committee.

Republic Services Takes Over As Trash Collector

Republic Services has taken over as the Township’s trash hauler after a competitive bidding process. Residents should have received new blue trash and recycling totes from Republic. If you have not received both containers, please call Republic at 215-723-0400.

Waste Management continues the collection of Trash and Recycling Toters

The Township continues to inform WM of the many toters left after their third-party collection team supposedly canvased the entire Township. We finally convinced WM personnel to drive the township, as the Township Staff has done, and view the “left-overs” from their contractor. Today, the Township has been informed that on Monday, November 16, 2020, WM’s third party contractor will again canvas the entire township and remove any trash or recycling toters that are left curbside. Please contact Waste Management if on Tuesday your green toters remain and needs to be collected at 1-800-633-9096. We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this transition.
