(SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Hamilton County, Ohio, February 6, 2013) The Springfield Township Board of Trustees will conduct two budget hearings at the Civic Center (9150 Winton Road) on February 12 and on March 12, 2013 at 5:30 P.M. Both meetings will include a brief presentation of the 2013 Budget as well as five-year projections. The hearing will provide an opportunity for public comment and discussion regarding this year's budget as well as the services, structure and funding options that the Board will be considering throughout this year as part of their long-range plan for the Township.
Township Trustees hosted a comprehensive look at Township finances during The Sate of the Township Community Address
, held January 27th. The State of the Township was recorded and can now be viewed online at http://www.springfieldtwp.org/stateofthetownship.cfm
. Over 100 residents attended the forum which reviewed the past five years and looked into the fiscal future of the township.
The Board of Trustees have made many difficult decisions over the past five years to deal with the impacts and challenges of declining revenues caused by the actions of State Legislature. The actions taken by the Board have positioned the Township well for the near term, however, additional actions will be necessary to ensure Township services remain strong and sustainable for the long term.
2013 will be a year of intensive study and analysis. The Board is expected to make decisions regarding issues that will impact the long term by end of the year or early 2014. Township officials are looking for resident engagement and feedback on these topics. To learn more, please attend the public hearings scheduled February 12 and March 12
