SUMMER ROAD PAVING PROGRAM
East Bradford Township has contracted with Di Rocco Bros., Inc. to perform the 2019 milling and resurfacing project for the Township. Work started early in June and should be completed July 15, 2019. The proposed schedule of work and locations may vary by day. Construction vehicles will be parked overnight on nearby streets while paving occurs. To see if you live on one of these roads or if you have questions, see the following letter.
2020 Budget preparation is underway. But, as reported during the 2019 Budget public approvals this past fall, the Township faces fiscal challenges to balance the budget. The Township has prepared a Budget 2020 FAQ to provide detailed information about the 2020 Budget. If you have budget-related questions that are not answered here, please contact Director of Finance Michael Lynch at firstname.lastname@example.org or (610) 436-5108 x101.

REGIONAL ENERGY PLANNING
On Thursday, July 11, at 6:00 p.m. at the West Whiteland Township Building, the West Chester Area Council of Governments—representing West Chester Borough, East Bradford Township, East Goshen Township, West Goshen Township, Westtown Township, and West Whiteland Township—will host a public workshop on regional energy planning in the Greater West Chester Area. The Council of Government has set an ambitious goal for the West Chester area to get to 100% renewable electricity by 2035 and 100% renewable energy by 2050. In order to achieve this goal, we need substantial public input. This meeting is likely to be the first of many over the next several decades as our region embarks on this important work. Meeting attendees will therefore play a critical role in guiding this process from the beginning. The meeting will be conducted by Cadmus, a consulting firm specializing in regional energy planning. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. and is expected to end no later than 8:00 p.m.
