The Borough has many Funds used for specific purposes. Some of these Funds are operating accounts for normal budgetary expenditures. Some are accounts set up for future capital purchases. Some Funds contain monies dedicated to specific purposes.
Funds that have been designated as operating Funds include General Fund, Sewer Fund, Water Fund and Community Day Fund. Routine expenditures come out of these funds.
Funds that are used to build reserves for future capital purchases, or in the event of unforeseen emergencies include General Fund Capital, Sewer Fund Capital, Water Fund Capital and Street improvement Fund. Theses funds are also used for payment of debt service.
The Fund that is used for dedicated purposes is the Highway Aid Fund and is funded by Liquid Fuel monies received from the State. Money in the Highway Aid fund is restricted and audited by the State annually to ensure that funds are being used as permitted. The Borough uses these funds to pay for their streetlight and traffic light utility bills and maintenance as well as snow removal.
Allocating resources wisely for the health, safety, and welfare of the community is an important step in maintaining accustomed service levels that will enhance the quality of life currently enjoyed by our residents.
The adopted Budget provides necessary resources for the Borough organization to achieve the goals and priorities established by Borough Council. It maintains accustomed service levels and represents an accurate estimate in dollars of the Borough's commitment to deliver quality municipal services to the Dublin Borough Community.
