Budget of Lancaster Township

The goal of the township budget process is to evaluate the needs and objectives of the township and to determine the feasibility of the township’s capacity to allocate revenues sufficiently to meet those needs and objectives. The budget also serves as a comprehensive document to facilitate transparency to the township residents of the costs of providing public services.

The Lancaster Township 2017 budget was approved by the Board of Supervisors at their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, December 12, 2016, and is available for viewing by clicking here. The 2016 budget is available here.
