Comcast Improvement Project Underway During the Next Several Weeks
Over the next several weeks, Comcast will be improving some of their existing networks and equipment throughout Bristol Township. All Comcast customers were notified via a customer letter 30-45 days prior to construction work. These improvements will support faster speeds, greater Internet capacity, and the continuing enhancement of other services for Bristol businesses and residents. As part of that work and in some areas of the Township, Comcast will be placing new aerial and underground lines including fiber. This is not a fiber-to-the-home effort, but rather part of their longstanding commitment to enriching the Hybrid Fiber Coaxial network. These improvements help Comcast keep the Township on the leading edge of innovation. Residents should contact Comcast directly with any questions.
The Township finished 2016 with a $3.5 mllion General Fund Budget surplus.
Township revenues exceeded projections by $2.3 million and expenses were $937,000 less than expected. The $3.5-million suplus was $3.2 million more than the Township's projections. 2016 continued a string of strong financial performances in Bristol. The Township has reduced taxes twice in the last six years and finished each year with a surplus. The Township will continue to control expenditures and reduce the cost of services by improving efficiencies. Investments in infrastructure such as roads, parks and bridges will also continue and the Township will work to attract further investment by businesses to create new jobs.
