Cromwell Township Supervisors approved their budget for the 2020 fiscal year at the regular monthly meeting Monday evening.

As part of their yearly budget, for the general fund, they are projecting $290,560 in revenues for 2020 and $104,000 in expenses.

Also, they approved the sewer fund as a separate part of the budget, which includes $76,300 in total income for the 2020 year, which includes sewer payments from Cromwell Township customers and loan reimbursement. They are also projecting expenses to be around $69,771 for the year, which includes maintenance and upkeep of the pump station in Cromwell Township as well as the sewer contract with the Orbisonia-Rockhill Joint Municipal Authority.

Additionally, Tara Frey with Brown & Walters Insurance Agency Inc. of Orbisonia presented township supervisors with their insurance plan for 2020.

Supervisor Kenny Wilson said they should approve it, but do so with a stipulation that they make changes with increasing insurance coverage on the sewage facility in the township and decreasing the coverage of the township office and meeting building.

Supervisors agreed to approve with those changes.

Additionally, supervisor Jeremy Young said they should designate handicap spaces at the township building.

“(Secretary) Dave Brenneman said he’s working on finding space for the handicap parking in front of the township building,” said Young.

It was suggested to put signs and paint handicap markings near the front office door, as the front door to the meeting area has a dip and would be difficult for those who need it to enter the building.
