Susquehanna School Board members unanimously approved the 2017-2018 budget of fifteen million two hundred forty-four thousand, seven hundred ninety-eight dollars during the June 21st School Board meeting. Superintendent Bronson Stone stated it’s helpful to prepare a budget when you know how much financing you’ll be receiving, and since there is no state budget in place, this budget is a financial plan. He stated the budget is based on taxation allocation and federal funding, and there will be a deficit spend but they are not clear how much at this time; projections are between two hundred and three hundred and fifty thousand dollars. A seventy thousand reduction in federal funds and a proposed seventy thousand reduction in transportation reimbursement were considered in the projected deficit. Included in the budget is a one hundred and seventy thousand spend for the high school roof improvement, and replacement of the boiler in the high school. The school district will be using two hundred forty-five thousand, four hundred and one dollars of fund balance to balance the budget. District millage for Susquehanna County is forty-eight point sixty-eight, and thirteen point ninety-five for Wayne County.
Roads are always the primary focus for 2nd-class townships like Harford, which has about 62 miles of them to maintain, 99% of them dirt and gravel. This time of year the road crew cranks up to grade, crown, ditch and generally repair damage from winter snow and spring mud, and prepare for what comes next. And so it was the major topic of interest at the township’s Supervisors’ meeting on June 20th.
