Financial Structure of Springfield Township

The Township’s appropriations are made up of approximately 28 different funds. Each fund receives revenues from specific sources, such as property tax levies, and are restricted in terms of permissible expenditures. Each one carries its own balance and carryovers. The General Fund permits the greatest discretionary expenditures. All other funds are known as special purpose funds, which have greater restrictions by State law regarding what they can be used for.

The Township’s financial structure is best understood as “a la carte” due to the ability of residents, through various dedicated tax levies, to determine the level of services desired. The Township’s revenue is primarily received from property taxes with the majority dedicated to public safety (Police & Fire/EMS).
