A one-cent budget increase in Lower Township will be voted on for adoption on Monday. Council reduced the proposed increase down to a penny in an attempt to be responsive to the economy. Some of the cuts include overtime in two departments equaling $25,000, and tipping fees have gone down and these that reflected a decrease in the amount the township had to spend. Also, council agreed to add in just over $110,000 from the reserve for uncollected taxes and $40,000 from the surplus to bring the tax rate down. A public hearing and possible adoption will take place during the meeting, which begins at 7 p.m.
