The funds were previously set aside for capital purposes, and is therefore eligible for vote through a referendum. Of the total amount, $84,000 will be set aside for gear and $35,000 will be set aside for the new vehicle.
The budget, which can be viewed in its entirety here, is subject to final adoption by the Moorestown Board of Fire Commissioners in District No. 1.
The exact wording of the question as it appears on the ballot is as follows:
“Shall the Board of Fire Commissioners of Fire District No. 1 in the Township of Moorestown be authorized to appropriate from its Restricted Fund Balance the amount of $119,000 to be utilized as general revenue in the 2014 Fire District Annual Budget?”
Voters will also head to the polls to elect two fire commissioners and approve the proposed budget, which asks for $2,070,712 to be raised by taxation.
Incumbent Fire Commissioners R. Max Fisher and Stephen H. Bixby are running for re-election to three-year terms on the board. Grant R. Leuliette is also running.
Polls are open at the Emergency Services Building (Hose Co. No. 1) located at 261 W. Main Street from 2-9 p.m. The entrance is located at the rear of the building by the entrance driveway.
