Welcome to the Finance Department of Lower Makefield Township. We hope you find information helpful and useful. Township finances can be difficult to understand, and we will attempt to provide some basic information so residents and constituents can better understand how tax dollars are spent.
Our goal is to provide accurate, timely and reliable information on the Township’s finances to all residents and constituents. We are also stewards of the Township’s revenues and assets, and as such we are responsible for the proper safeguarding of all funds and their appropriate spending.
Along with required and mandated audits, we do this primarily through recurring reports and presentations, including constant monitoring and reporting on the township’s budget.
Reporting on the townships many funds also includes the following annual audits or reports:
- Annual Financial Audit of all funds
- Bi-Annual audit of Liquid Fuels monies
- Annual Audit of Sewer Fund
- Annual DCED report as required by the Commonwealth of PA
We are responsible for all facets of the townships finances, including monitoring revenues and expenses, and helping to manage the townships investments.
The specific areas that can be found in the Finance department include:
- Accounts Payable
- Accounts Receivable
- Special Billing
- Golf Course Accounting
- Sewer Fund Accounting
- Grant Accounting
There are many other items which we manage or report on. Any questions on any of the township’s finances can be sent to: Finance@lmt.org
