The township showed income for 2006 as of November at $270,770 with income proposed at $265,621 for 2007. The township listed total expenses of $363,193.43 as of November. The figure translates into a deficit of $92,423.43 so far for 2006.
The township listed expenses of $289,147 for 2007. The projected deficit was listed at $23,526 for $2007.
