Success - Our 3Cents tax stays - unanimous vote of support by Freeholders
We had a very strong showing at the Freeholders' Public Hearing last night.
Thank you everyone for taking the time to attend and speak.
The Freeholders' listened and unanimously agreed to maintain the 3Cents rate - which is great.
But they also agreed to use the Fund to pay down about $3M of pre-existing debt from the purchase of land for the golf course. Many people - including some Freeholders - feel they do not have the legal authority to do this. They do not let Townships do this. So what ever the legal position it is a terrible precedent and poor governance on the Freeholders' behalf. If you agree please continue to add your support to this petition - which we will present to the Freeholders when the vote to complete the 2012 budget process in the coming weeks.
