Mayor Paul Medany’s Monthly Message - May 2021

Our message to you this month and every month is about what Township council is doing to improve our community, create new programs, expand services and provide for the health, safety and welfare of every resident. While National and State government gets the press and news reports, we focus on local issues and the needs of our community.

Property Taxes are always a topic. Our Finance committee led by Councilman Ken Barnshaw and Bill Lamb works with rest of Council and the administration year round to create the most efficient revenue and appropriation plan possible.

A Zero local tax increase is the result of these efforts. We are here to do our part in reducing the tax burden everyone feels from seniors to working families, homeowners and businesses. This means for the coming year Deptford is not raising our local tax in order to get you relief, but at the same time we are building new projects and providing the best in public services.

The County Government, School District and Fire District are all part of your overall tax bill. Deptford usually has one of lowest overall tax levies in the County. Your local portion of the property tax bill on average is about $126.00 per month. This is less than most cable TV bills or your cell phone bill. With this $126.00 we provide trash pickup, road maintenance, create public playgrounds, leaf pickup, public safety, salaries, vehicles, recreation and so much more.

Local government is a very complex operation and we want to thank all of our Deptford Team, from the Administration, Department Heads and our Team members for providing the most efficient and productive municipal operations in the region.

This is about Deptford Township, our community, our residents, our visitors and our businesses. We thank all of you for your part in making Deptford a great place to live!  Stay safe and we will definitely see you soon at one of our great upcoming events.
