FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ - The township mayor, council and manager anticipate they will present residents of Franklin with a smaller budget than they did last year at next Tuesday's council meeting. 

 "As we anticipate preparing the budget document it will be slightly less in appropriations than last year, slightly more in revenue," Township Manager Robert Vornlocker said. "Which results in slightly less utilized from fund balance."

Which basically means the township is spending less and taking in more, without reducing any services. Last year's township budget was below $60 million.

"So for the seventh year we will be below the 2009 budget," Mayor Phillip Kramer said.

"This seems to be the tightest budget I have ever seen in the years I have heard the presentations," Councilwoman Rozalyn Sherman said (2nd ward) . "I think  you and your staff have done a very good job, congratulations." 

During next week's township council meeting Vornlocker will present the budget to the public.
