County planners look to restart “Jump Start” transportation program
The Montgomery County Planning Commission is requesting that county commissioners consider setting aside $5 million in capital improvement funds to restart a limited local transportation improvement program called “Jump Start.” In 2009, county planners envisioned a $150 million transportation program designed to ease local traffic congestion, but the borrowing plan was not put out for voter referendum because the economy faltered. Instead of abandoning the program completely, former county commissioners directed the planning commission to put together a small demonstration program, called “Jump Start.” The original “Jump Start” plans used $5.38 million in county funds, $1.78 in municipal funds and $3.2 million in private funds for five traffic improvement projects across the county, including the Sumneytown Pike project, traffic signal projects in Jenkintown,Green Laneand Pennsburg, and the Matsonford Road widening project in West Conshohocken.

Souderton finds $500K budget error
The Souderton Area School District Finance Committee learned about a $500,000 error in the adopted $108.3 million preliminary 2012-13 budget. The error was in the district’s favor, but even with the positive outcome of the error, the school district still needs to close a $3.7 million budget gap. One of the largest contributors to this year’s deficit is a $2 million payment owed to the Pennsylvania School Employee Retirement System from last year. The district will continue to work on the budget with a final draft set to be adopted in June.
