Warrington Township will hold three budget work sessions for the 2023 budget on Sept. 27, Oct. 11 and Oct, 25, all at 6 p.m.

Budget Work Session I will focus on departmental personnel requests and the five‐year (2023 ‐ 2027) outlook for General Fund Revenue, Expenditures, and Fund Balance.
At Budget Work Session II, a Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan will be presented, and there will be a request for feedback from the board of supervisors and the public.
At Budget Work Session III, both the 2023 Operating budget and the Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan will be presented to the board of supervisors.
Financial resources for the township are separated into 10 funds, including: General Fund; Fire Fund; Utility Proceeds Fund; American Rescue Plan Fund; Tax Stabilization Fund; Open Space Funds; Capital Improvement Fund; Debt Service; Highway Aid Fund; and Internal Service Fund.
“We are looking for ways to provide the level of service that township residents have come to expect, in the most cost-effective manner,” said Fred Gaines, chairman, Warrington Township Board of Supervisors. “We also want to continue reinvesting in existing facilities and infrastructure. That is why we encourage residents to come out to at least one of the sessions and let their voices be heard. Input from our residents will help us as we work to both maintain infrastructure and provide high quality service.”
