Shade Tree Commission Beautifies Library

Thu, Dec 11th, 2014

The Township's Shade Tree Commission recently completed a beautification project at the Wissahickon Valley Public Library Blue Bell Branch.

As part of the project, 13 new trees were planted in the library's parking lot and 4 dead trees were removed.

"This was a rewarding project," said Shade Tree Commission Member Andy Meehan. "We were able to partner with the library to improve the aesthetic appeal of their parking lot by planting native tree species that are ideally suited to our climate."

This project was one of many that the volunteer commission completes throughout the year. They also sponsor a tree giveaway in the spring for Township residents and participate in the Township's annual Earth Day festivities to name a few.

2015 Budget Adopted

Fri, Dec 5th, 2014

The Board of Supervisors has adopted the Township's 2015 budget, which again maintains the current tax rates.

The December 2 action by the Board concludes a yearlong process involving the Supervisors, Township staff and members of volunteer boards and commissions.

The $13 million budget maintains the current real estate tax rate in the Township for the fifth consecutive year. Based on current projections, no increase is anticipated for the next four years.

"We work very hard to run an efficient and effective organization that serves all who live in, work in and enjoy Whitpain," said Supervisor Chairman Fred Conner. "We are very pleased to have a budget in place that enables us to continue our efforts while holding taxes steady."
