This was the first internet meeting for the Exeter Supervisors. It went off fairly well. Although, they did the meeting on Zoom (ironically the servers are in China) they presented it to us on YouTube.
The agenda was too long, 21 agenda items. They were advised earlier to reduce the number but of course they never take anyones advice and what I have noticed is that once they commit/make a decision they rarely if ever will change even if it is a reasonably good idea. So, they decided as they went through the agenda items to determine if the agenda item was critical or if it could wait to a later date, this extended the meeting times and long discussions.
They tabled 4 items and modified the agenda item for golf equipment approving the first item and holding the other two for later.
Most of the agenda items were fairly routine but they did table the discussion on RFP's on the Promenade. Seems they think they should have architects working on the project before they get the input from the public. Seems backwards to me, what does the public want? Turn it into the township Taj Mahal or fix it up/ get in retailers and put it back on the tax rolls or something else? Then you might bring in the architects, right? But not Simone Collins....John Grangers associate!
What this meeting should be famous for is not the Agenda items presented but the one major item missing and never mentions: THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL AUDIT AND THE FINANCIAL REPORT THAT IS REQUIRED TO BE FILED WITH THE DCED. Not one comment the whole night!
Understand the Annual Audit for 2019 was to be completed and the summary of Revenue and Expenses and our General Fund balance published in the local newspaper no later than April 1, 90 days after the year end.
You may have seen other municipalities publish theirs over the last several weeks. But not Exeter. This board forgot all about it. They will tell you they didn't, in fact the chairperson David Speece told me the PSATS told them the date was relaxed. But he must have misinterpreted this information because it was quite clearly in the information that the deadline was NOT relaxed and the deadline of April 1 was firm, but DCED would waive the late penalties due to the Corona Virus situation. This report was to be made available to all Exeter Township residents no later than April 15. Of course this will not happen, Mr. Speece has informed me that the audit will be completed by the end of April. This time because of the current situation it will not cost our taxpayers any money. But it is another indicator of the disorganization within the township office and the lack of oversight our township supervisors display . Certainly other townships were able to meet the deadline with much smaller staff.
See the image above in which Mr. Speece has so kindly provided. The deadline is not waived but penalties will be waived this time. I have a serious concern when we miss our financial commitments it has been my experience that multiple issues with sloppy performance indicates serious issues with any organization. Proper planning would have prevented this from happening You decide. AGAIN BELOW CLICK ON "READ MORE" FOR AGENDA AND TIMES
Great Question: Where does the money to cover the reduction in taxes come from?
