In the millage designation levied for 2007, the Township earmarked 1/2 mill for firefighting purposes. This designation was ordained pursuant to 53 P.S. § 56709(a), Subsection Two(i) (A), (B), (C) and (E).
It is acknowledged that this shall not impose an obligation on the Township to impose this millage in future years. However, the Board of Commissioners shall be free to impose or not to impose such millage in future years in its sole discretion. If the Board of Commissioners does not include such a millage appropriation in its budget in any future year, it shall be presumed that the Board of Commissioners elected not to earmark or appropriate millage for firefighting purposes.
There is hereby created a separate account for the deposit of all such funds derived from this millage appropriation, and the Township Treasurer is authorized to open such an account with the Township official depository for the safekeeping of such funds and for the investment of such funds pending appropriation and distribution.
Such funds shall and may be appropriated and paid by the Treasurer pursuant to duly enacted resolutions as may be approved by the Board of Township Commissioners from time to time in its sole discretion for firefighting purposes consistent with the goals of the First Class Township Code as enumerated in § 270-67 above.
This article shall take effect as of January 1, 2007.
