Key Points:

Presented By: Jeffery Curtis at the work session

As of May total revenues were $53,393,594

Spending was $54,954,887

Resulting in a $1.56M deficit

Potential tax increases may result in Chester County where median homestead property homeowners in the Octorara Area School District may pay an additional $56 per year, and $312  in Lancaster County. “That’s just a guess” Curtis states.

FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT

Published by:

THE FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 515 AM EDT FOR NORTHERN
NEW CASTLE...NORTHEASTERN CECIL...NORTHERN SALEM...WEST CENTRAL
CAMDEN...GLOUCESTER...CHESTER...SOUTHWESTERN PHILADELPHIA AND
DELAWARE COUNTIES...

At 249 AM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that will cause
minor flooding in the advisory area. Moderate to locally heavy rain
with rainfall rates of up to one inch per hour is moving through the
advised area. This has a history of producing flash flooding, but
the rain is not as intense as it was earlier. Motorists should
exercise caution on area roads and watch for road closures.

Some locations that could experience flooding include...
Philadelphia, Wilmington, Newark, West Chester, Gloucester City,
Calvert, Chester, Deptford, West Deptford, Glassboro, Lindenwold,
Pennsville, Coatesville, Bellmawr, Yeadon, Westtown, Woodbury,
Pitman, Clayton and Carneys Point.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around...don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.

  rain are expected across portions of the area. Some
  thunderstorms may also occur and could be slow moving which
  could lead to locally higher amounts.

* Excessive rainfall within a short period of time can lead to
  rapidly rising waters and flash flooding, particularly in
  urban areas and along small creeks and streams.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash
flooding which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to
occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters
may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage. Streams
and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.

Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location
that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a flash
flood warning is issued for your area.
