Financial Management of College Township
- 5-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) - A very important tool for long-range planning, the CIP provides a list of capital projects expected to occur over the next 5 years.
- Annual Operating Budgets for College Township - The Council of College Township must plan for the township's financial future to ensure that its inflows of resources (revenues) will be adequate to meet its needs (expenses), both anticipated and unanticipated. The needs involve the cost of providing an acceptable level of services for its residents as well as funding for operating and capital project expenses. This financial planning function underlies the entire process culminating with the approval of the annual operating budget.
- Quarterly Reports - The Finance Department wishes to keep our residents up to date with the latest financial information. The Finance Director updates the Council quarterly, and those reports are published here.
