Meeting on Monday @ 7:00 pm. Doors open at 6:30. We need as many people as can make it to the December 9th Exeter Supervisors Meeting. Significant issues in my opinion.
See for yourself this is a mess! Remember the negative Fund balance numbers in Column C for the 2020 Budget must be covered. Guess how? The proceeds of the Sewer Plant. We are going to burn thru that money.
I give up on attempts to convince the board or J. Granger of the ethical conduct and the integrity missing in presenting to the public misinformation. The knowledge of which will be presented as evidence/support to a motion to adopt a budget that is not fair, honest and certainly not clear. It confuses the reader, it confuses me! I would give Granger and the board a grade of F for transparency, accuracy and honesty.
This must stop!
It is my opinion that Granger and the Board are part of the continued lack of transparency, rush to tie up these funds, supportive of publishing information to the public that they know is false and inaccurate data, the false and misleading narrative of tax stabilization by subsidizing with sewer proceeds, they are not naive (definition of naive: showing lack of experience, wisdom, or judgement).
We should utilize the sewer proceeds to produce significant investment in the township, capital improvements, not subsidize taxes. It is in every way conceivable a non-creative and a complete waste to subsidize taxes.
Consequently, the Homestead Act which eliminates per John Granger $800,000 in tax revenue should not be implemented. We are running a deficit for 2020 and have run deficits for the last 4 year at least. It is the proverbial robbing of Peter to pay Paul.
It doesn’t work and will contribute to the “EXETER TIME BOMB” that I predict will go off when you run out of “sewer fund” money.
I am excited for the end of this regime because I think when the pressure is off of the people who are now afraid to speak up, I believe we will hear some very interesting stories.
The board does not manage the township manager, it is the other way around. Make no mistake about it, the board has given up on managing our community and has turned over all decisions to John Granger.
They did this at another township Granger worked at and paid a terrible price after which they admitted they gave him too much power. This is the case here in Exeter.
We need to table on Monday:
1. Adoption of 2020 budget (not accurate and used to set tax rates for 2020)
2. Resolution of 2020 tax rates
3. Transferring funds and establishing new fund
4. Approve resolution of setting compensation for management and employees
5. Authorization of homestead act
6. Granting final approval for Mama’s Pizza
