2015 Adopted Municipal Budget PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, June 18, 2015

The Montclair Township Council unanimously approved the 2015 municipal budget at Tuesday's Council meeting. Acting Township Manager Timothy Stafford said the budget will see a slight increase with the municipal tax levy increasing by approximately $409,000 dollars. Total 2015 budget appropriations equal $79,996,438.

Although New Jersey statutes permit deferring the school tax, the Acting Township Manager chose to take a more conservative fiscal approach by not opting for the deferral. Mr. Stafford also announced that Montclair’s municipal debt has been reduced by 15 percent -- or $32 million -- since 2009.
