Municipal Budgets and Audits

Maurice River Township's annual budgets have been posted on this website for public information. Municipal budgets must be introduced based on the data available no later than February 10th of each calendar year, unless extensions are granted by the State. Budget amendments may be made prior to final adoption of the annual budget based on changes in revenue and appropriations in the appropriate categories. Final adoption of the annual budget requires a public hearing and approval by the State before being forwarded to the Cumberland County Board of Taxation for the tax rate to be struck. The Governing Body may decide to seek additional state aid which delays the process of final adoption of the budget, however receipt of any additional aid may reduce the tax impact to the taxpayer.
