The start of the new year is right around the corner, and planning for 2018 started months ago here at the Borough of Ambridge. Preparation of the community’s budget takes a great deal of public input, long-term planning, and strategic processes to ensure that the essential services that our citizens rely upon are met and continued. The 2018 Budget that is planned for adoption on December 12th is currently available for public inspection at the Borough office, the Laughlin Library and online at: www.AmbridgeBoro.org on the "Public Notices" page.
Highlights of the 2018 Budget include – NO TAX INCREASE (13th year without an increase in Real Estate Taxes), replacement of the street-sweeper, a new police car, road paving, the Merchant Street Streetscape Project, and computer equipment upgrades within the Borough Building. The 2018 Budget is a balanced spending plan equal to $4,567,872.11. There is an increase of $74,847.39 comparing 2017 to 2018; an overall increase of 1.6%. Many efforts were undertaken over the past year to cut costs and reduce spending including: renegotiating our utility supply contracts, adding streets to our State Liquid Fuels allocation, lower contract for winter rock salt, reduced pension obligations through increased employee contributions, and doing many projects and repairs in-house with Borough staff.
