DENVILLE, NJ – The Denville Municipal Council adopted the 2019 budget of nearly $22,700,000 at its regular meeting on April 2.

“The 2019 budget is a conservative budget. It highlights our continued financial strength in the form of a healthy fund balance while providing adequate protections against potential pending exposures,” Denville Mayor Thomas Andes told the council. “[It] demonstrates our various departments’ ability to effectively live by the motto, ‘do more with less,’ as the majority of departmental budgets are equal to or less than their 2018 approved budget.”

The budget contains a $26.46 annualized tax increase (or approximately $2.20 per month) to the average assessed property owner in Denville.
