My Efforts to Cut Expenses in the 2021 Newtown Budget

After voting to adopt the 2021 budget at the December 22, 2020, Board of Supervisors meeting, several residents wanted to hear why I voted to approve this budget that included added expenses and a tax increase. I decided to host a Meet Mack Monday Zoom meeting on January 11, 2021, to answer that question. The following is an audio segment from that meeting where I summarized my personal efforts to cut expenses in the 2021 budget and thereby reduce as much as possible the township real estate tax increase. Find a more detailed timeline here.

Jeremy W. Stoff, a Bucks County Planning Commission Planner, presented highlights of those shifts at the September 3, 2020, Joint Zoning Council meeting.
