Prairieville Township pushes budget dates forward
People are preparing for the 2020 election, and it’s not even Christmas yet.
Prairieville Township Clerk Rod Goebel proposed moving the township’s annual budget meetings to January in anticipation of the March 10 primary election. Goebel made the suggestion at the monthly meeting Dec 11.
“The budget process has historically taken place in February and March,” Goebel said. “But there is a big election coming in early March.”
After discussing potential meeting times, the board decided to hold the meetings in mid-January. Treasurer Judy Pence was absent.
In other business, the board voted to reappoint Ken Craft and Dan Jeska to two-year terms on the board of review and Fred Bork to a three-year term on the planning commission.
The township’s next meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 8.
