Budgets and Audits

The Township Manager is responsible for the preparation and submission of the Annual Operating Budget. The document is prepared in coordination with the Director of Finance and other Department Heads. Once prepared, the document is reviewed by the Board of Supervisors in public work sessions. It is again reviewed publicly at a Regular Meeting and submitted for final adoption by Resolution at the final Regular Meeting of the year.

Each year, Ferguson Township prepares an Executive Summary to accompany the adopted budget. The Executive Summary captures most relevant information from the Operating Budget and Capital Improvement Program Budget and summarizes it in a manner that is relatable and useful to Township residents.

These documents are incorporated into the annual Comprehensive Budget submission for the Government Finance Officers Association Distinguished Budget Award Program.

Capital Improvement Plan

The Ferguson Township's Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) outlines plans for capital expenses of $2,500 or more, with a life span of more than one year, including such projects as buildings, roads, and the purchase of major equipment and vehicles.

A five-year “look-see” into the future, the CIP attempts to determine how much money the Township needs to fund its services, recommends allocating funds where they can be most useful, and educates the Township staff about spending guidelines. It is important to remember that the CIP is a plan. The Annual Budget legally binds the Township to the budget approved by the Ferguson Township Board of Supervisors. Please read the current five-year plan at the link below.
