Borough of West Chester - 2019 Budget Narrative


2019 Proposed Budget Theme

The 2019 proposed/recommended budget theme will focus on three pressing issues:

  • Balanced Budget for 2019
  • Unfunded pension liability - The Borough will need to increase its uniformed and non-uniformed pension funding obligations in order to reduce this liability. The liability is $19MM. Our 2018 Minimum Municipal Obligation (MMO) is $1.7MM (net of state aid).
  •  Other Post Employment Benefits (“OPEB”) Obligations (Retirement healthcare for police officers). The liability is $4.0MM and in 2019 it will increase to $4.4MM.
