FAIRPLAIN TOWNSHIP — The Fairplain Township Board adjusted its budget to make room for lawn care services and computer software.
During Monday night’s regular scheduled meeting, the Fairplain Township Board took $15,000 from the roads budget and divided it into three other budgets.
“Hopefully this is the last time we will had to adjust (the budget),” said Supervisor Tom Sova.
Each budget for cemeteries, health and wellness and miscellaneous, received $5,000 from the roads budget.
According to Treasurer Sharon Swindell, the roads budget was left with $150,000 after the transfers were made.
The cemetery budget now has $7,000, while the health and wellness has $10,000. The miscellaneous budget now contains $6,000.
Swindell said the software she looking to get is BS&A (commonly used by local governments), which will help her while collecting taxes.
“The software costs $4,275,” Swindell said.
