Gloucester Township Council Meeting – March 14, 2022

Tonight we have the final reading of the 2022 Capital Budget. This year’s Capital Improvements are so far coming in at $9,207,922.00 which is considerably more than last year’s $7,300,000.00. Here is the breakdown for this years capital budget. It does appear we are planning on borrowing this money. There also doesn’t appear to be any mention of using the $6.8 Million that GT received in COVID relief money that can be used for Infrastructure.
