Editor’s note: Further proof of how devastating losing Jason will be!
POTTSTOWN, PA - It’s starting to look like when Borough Manager Jason Bobst leaves the borough in August, he will be leaving it in pretty good financial shape.
He offered council a mid-year budget status report last week that could be summed up as “most of the funds are going pretty well.”
“Some lines,” he said, “are cause for concern but overall, the borough’s books are on a positive cash basis and we’re projecting a $50,000 surplus at the end of the year, barring anything unexpected.”
Given that as recently as 2009, the borough has ended the year with deficits, this is good news and the result of hard work by Finance Director Janice Lee and her staff, Bobst said.
