VERNON — The Vernon Township Council on Monday night unveiled the 2019 budget to the public, a $26.4 million spending plan, which will come with a $17.75 million tax levy.

The municipal tax rate of about 69 cents per $100 of assessed value means the average township homeowner – with a value of about $215,000 – will see an average tax bill of $1,477 per year.

The budget calls for a $129,349 decrease in township spending.

The Council approved the introductory budget by a 3-2 vote. Councilman Mark Van Tassel, John Auberger and Patrick Curreri voted for the budget, while Council President Jean Murphy and Councilwoman Sandra Ooms voted against it.

According to budget figures released by the township, the tax levy comes in at about $149,000 under the state’s 2 percent tax cap.
