White Pigeon fiscal budget

The White Pigeon Township Board of Trustees approved its 2013-14 fiscal year budget this week.

The five-member board Tuesday approved its $455,000 budget, which is less than its budget one year earlier.

Clerk David Girton said projected expenses from the general fund are $221,467, while expenses from the township’s fire department and cemetery fund are expected to be $177,300 and $78,000, respectively.

Girton said the budget is lower this year because the township a year ago purchased a fire truck, which made its fire fund expenses for the 2012-13 fiscal year an anomaly because of the costly purchase.

The township also agreed to continue to levy three-tenths of a mill and more than six-tenths of a mill for operations related to the White Pigeon Township Library.
