White Township supervisors approved the 2022 budget on Wednesday evening.

The budget contains no property taxes for township residents and no changes to fees. The budget amounted to $ 10,247,349 in expenditure and left a deficit of $ 1,290,000, which will be filled from the commune’s cash reserves. Township manager Milt Lady called this year’s budget process “intriguing.”

In other cases, township supervisors have approved the deer management program, which will begin next year. The program has changed from previous versions, removing the $ 35 fee and the requirement that a doe be taken before a buck is taken. The board also authorized recreation director Ryan Shaffer to accept an offer from the Penn State Cooperative Extension to conduct a deer study for the township free of charge. This will be done prior to deer season and will provide township supervisors with deer population figures prior to the start of archery season.

Supervisors also approved the formation of the White Township Stewardship Committee, formerly known as the Woodlot Management Plan subcommittee. The committee’s 18-month schedule was approved, but no new members were recommended by township staff.
