Plymouth Township Board of Trustees Adopts 2013 Budget

Plymouth Township Board of Trustees unanimously approves proposed 2013 budget.

The Plymouth Township Board of Trustees on Tuesday unanimously adopted its 2013 budget and approved an amended 2012 budget.

The 2013 budget includes levying a 4-mill tax on township property owners.

Unlike 2012's budget, which saw a 23 percent cut to the township's fire department budget, reductions budgeted for 2013 appear more subtle. 

A look at the budgets approved Tuesday by township trustees:
