Cinnaminson Fire Budget Passes
Two incumbents were returned to their seats as fire commissioners, as voters also OK'd a $3.7 million budget.
With just a fraction of registered voters turning out, Cinnaminson's fire budget easily passed Saturday, 119-45.
Two incumbent commissioners, Roger Butler and Frank Ellison Jr., ran unopposed and were re-elected to three-year terms.
The total Cinnaminson Fire District budget for 2013 is $3,748,628. Of that, $2,741,234 will be raised by taxation. The remaining funds are from budget surplus, grants and more.
This was the fifth year in a row the fire district presented a budget to voters with no tax increase. The department has a detailed breakdown of the 2013 budget on its website.
Cinnaminson has more than 8,600 registered voters; fire districts elections, always held on the third Saturday in February, typically draw very few voters to the polls. This year's turnout was less than 2 percent.
