Barrington council to discuss exceeding budget appropriations limits, authorizing temporary emergency appropriations tonight

The Barrington Borough Council may adopt plans to acquire land for the White Horse Pike redevelopment program, will introduce an ordinance to exceed the municipal budget appropriations limit and will vote on an ordinance authorizing temporary emergency appropriations at the regular monthly meeting at 6 tonight at borough hall, according to the meeting agenda.

Barrington Municipal BuildingThe ordinances for acquisition of the Duckrey and Shiv estates include “authorizing the litigation necessary to implement said acquisition,” the agenda states. Both tracts are part of the ongoing effort to bring a Super Wawa and a restaurant with a liquor license, along with significant traffic restructuring, to the land near the end of Exit 29A off ramp from Interstate 295 North.

Council will enter an ordinance to exceed the municipal budget appropriations limit into the record and will vote on the ordinance following a public hearing to be held during the May 14 council meeting.

The appropriations ordinances are standard resolutions completed each year as part of the budget process, Municipal Clerk Terry Shannon said via email.

“The temporary budget approved in January only covers three months.  Our permanent budget won’t be adopted until May so we need to do another temporary budget to cover us until adoption,” she said.

The ordinance to exceed the municipal budget appropriation limits also is standard and is done each year, she said.

Among other activities at tonight’s meeting:

  • Amend the rental properties code
  • Authorize lighting upgrades at the VFW Hall
  • Amending the personnel policy handbook pertaining to medical opt-out
  • Supporting adoption of idle-free zones
  • Approving the April bill list—Total $659,369.97
  • Authorizing temporary emergency appropriations
