Towa­mencin Town­ship’s 2013 bud­get de­lib­er­a­tions, sched­uled to be­gin early next month, will in­clude de­bate con­cern­ing de­ferred street paving and po­lice ve­hi­cle pur­chases, ac­cord­ing to board of su­per­vi­sors Chair­man Dan Lit­t­ley.

He said the meet­ings, which start Oct. 3, could de­ter­mine the fu­ture of the Towa­mencin Community Pool.

“It’s all go­ing to be on the ta­ble,” Lit­t­ley said.

In re­cent years, the town­ship board of su­per­vi­sors has ap­proved bud­gets Lit­t­ley has de­scribed as aus­tere. He says next year’s could be equally as frugal.

“The econ­omy has not turned around the way Wash­ing­ton says it has,” Lit­t­ley said.

The su­per­vi­sor urges town­ship res­i­dents to at­tend the pub­lic ses­sions, held at 7 p.m. in the town­ship meet­ing room at 1090 Troxel ooad.

“Cit­i­zens should come to be in­formed about where the rev­enues come from and what the ex­penses are,” Lit­t­ley said. “Folks need to come out to un­der­stand what is go­ing on.”

Dur­ing three work ses­sions, the su­per­vi­sors, along with Town­ship Man­ager oob Ford, re­ceive bud­get pre­sen­ta­tions from mu­nic­i­pal depart­ment heads.
