Welcome to the latest installment of the Mayor's Weekly Briefing, which contains a recap of events and news happening around town, upcoming events and community activities. I hope you will join us at these community events, sign up to receive e-mail updates, follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook. 

Wishing all our residents a very safe and happy holiday
On behalf of Township Council and everyone in Town Hall, I would like to take a moment to wish all our residents a very safe, happy and healthy holiday season. Regardless of your faith, or whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, or something else entirely, the holiday season is a time for family, friends, relaxation and reflection. As we look toward the end of 2012 and the start of a brand new year, please know that I wish you and your loved ones peace, happiness, love and prosperity in the coming year, and always.

Township holiday hours, trash-collection schedule
In observance of the Christmas holiday, municipal offices will close at 3 p.m. Monday, Dec. 24, and will be closed on Tuesday, Dec. 25. There will be no trash, recycling or yard-waste collection on Tuesday; instead, Tuesday routes will be collected on Wednesday, Dec. 26. All other collection days will remain the same. For more information, please call the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422, or Republic Services of New Jersey at (856) 234-4000.

Revaluation notices have begun arriving in homes
The first batch of Cherry Hill homeowners have begun receiving notices of their updated property values for 2013, as set through the recently completed revaluation process. These letters are being sent by Professional Property Appraisers, the firm that conducted the reassessment, in a series of six batches over the course of the next few weeks. Each notice contains the updated assessed value for 2013, along with an estimate of each home’s 2013 taxes, based on the 2012 budget. These numbers are examples only; homeowners will not see their actual tax impact until July 2013. PPA representatives will be available through January to meet individually with homeowners who wish to discuss their new assessment. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Professional Property Appraisers at (800) 410-5815, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Public smoking ban is now officially in effect
Smoking cigarettes on Township-owned property is now officially against the law. An ordinance banning smoking at Township facilities formally took effect this past Thursday, Dec. 20, and full enforcement – including potential fines of up to $150 for first-time offenders – will begin in late January. The ban applies to the Municipal Complex on Mercer Street, the Cherry Hill Library, and all Township-owned parks, playgrounds and trails. For more information on this new law, click here.

Cherry Hill Police remind residents to drive safely this holiday season
The Cherry Hill Police Department reminds everyone to be safe this holiday season. Don't drink and drive! The CHPD is participating in the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, scheduling targeted patrols through Jan. 2. The statistics behind drunk driving are staggering:
¦ Alcohol-impaired motor vehicle crashes cost more than an estimated $37 billion annually.
¦ In 2010, more than 10,000 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes - one every 51 minutes.
Impaired driving can also be a sign of a larger problem of alcohol abuse. Help save lives: Never drive while buzzed or drunk, and stop your friends from doing the same. For more information, click here.

Thank you to Lourdes Health System for supporting our Walk with the Mayormwclogo2.jpg

This past Wednesday, I led nearly 2 dozen people in our latest installment of my “Walk with the Mayor” series at the Cherry Hill Mall. It was our best showing yet, thanks in part to the support of one of our newest Mayor’s Wellness Campaign partners, Lourdes Health System. Lourdes staff members joined us for a 2-mile walk around the Mall’s December WWM for briefing.jpginterior, and representatives from the Lourdes Wellness Center (coming to Brace Road in the spring) offered complimentary blood pressure screenings. As always, I would like to thank both Lourdes and the Mall – and the many residents who came out for this month’s event – for their continued support of Cherry Hill Township and the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign. Save the date for our next walk, at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16; Lourdes will again be on hand with free health screenings and a special giveaway.
