NJ Town Council Approves 2020 Budget Resolution, Tables Stellar Inter-Local Agreement

A resolution adopting the 2020 budget was unanimously approved by the North Judson Town Council when members met Monday night.

Clerk-Treasurer Andrew Rowe read the resolution into the record and noted that no changes have been made to the budget since they held the required hearing over it back in September.

The Town of North Judson has a total budget estimate of approximately $1.25 million, with the majority of funds, $800,460 listed in the General Fund.  The maximum estimated funds to be raised in 2020 comes in around $645,600.

Though the budget received approval from Town officials, it will now go before the Department of Local Government Finance for final approval.  

The Town Council was also presented with an inter-local agreement that describes the arrangement between the various municipalities in the Constellation of Starke region that are involved in the Stellar Communities Designation Program.

Officials opted to wait to vote on it until their Town Attorney Justin Schramm has a chance to review it, as he was absent from Monday’s meeting. It will be up for approval again at their next meeting on Monday, October 21st.
