The Board approved the $133,410 budget for advertisement for final passage at the Dec. 7 meeting. Supervisor Chairman Pete Steffen said the budget was $3,690 less than last year.
Steffen said he was also asking the Township Planning Commission to give up their meeting pay to save the Township $1,500 next year. When asked if the Supervisors were giving up their meeting pay he said no.
He explained he thought the planning commission meeting pay was new, adding when he served on the Planning Commission in Hawley Borough they were not paid.
Audience members said the planning commission has been paid for about six years.
Steffen said he also was not asking other employees to take a pay cut.
He noted the township finished this year with a surplus of 15 percent.
