$1.2M Spent On Upper Macungie's February Bills
It's just like running a household, according to the township's treasurer.
- March 10, 2013
Upper Macungie Township treasurer Barry Moyer said Thursday night that the $1.2 million spent on February's bill-paying is akin to running a household budget.
But Upper Macungie, now with its own police force and more than 20,000 residents to serve, has a very big budget.
Supervisors reported that the township paid $1,278,710.53 in February bills.
If you think that's a staggering amount, Moyer shed some light on some of the liabilities the township must pay every month.
The bills include:
- Health Insurance premiums
- Vehicle maintenance
- Building upkeep
- Gasoline and diesel fuel
Plus, Moyer said, the township used more than $70,000 in salt to combat icy roads during the month.
