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.

Public Works crews prepared for wintry weather
Snow has begun to fall in Cherry Hill, and the Department of Public Works is out treating nearly 260 miles of municipal roads this evening. With that said, please remember to drive carefully tonight. This week’s frigid temperatures mean snow will accumulate quickly on sidewalks and streets, and visibility may be limited at times. If you need to be on the roads tonight, drive slowly, and allow ample travel time. For more information on the forecast and the Township’s preparations, click here.

High School leaders participate in Student Government DaySGD1.jpg
On Wednesday, Jan. 23, two dozen students from Cherry Hill High Schools East and West participated in the 2013 Student Government Day at Town Hall. This annual event gives high school juniors a firsthand look at how local government operates and what it takes to craft new policies and laws. Students spent the day working with Township staff and outside professionals to research real issues facing the Township, and crafting proposals aimed at addressing those issues. This year’s group looked at how alternative modes of transportation can help alleviate traffic congestion, and explored SGD2.jpgways to engage community leaders in helping to disseminate vital information in emergencies. Township Council members and I mentored the students throughout the day before joining them for a special mock Council meeting that evening where each group presented its proposal. It was a challenging for everyone involved – and I was very impressed by the initiative and creativity the students displayed. I expect to see great things from all of them in the future. Congratulations!

Mayor, Council President welcome middle school leaders to Town HallPeer Leaders for briefing.jpg
Council President David Fleisher and I welcomed Peer Leaders from Cherry Hill’s three Middle Schools to a special daylong retreat on Friday, sponsored by the Cherry Hill Alliance on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. More than a dozen Peer Leaders from Beck, Carusi, and Rosa International Middle Schools joined their teachers to talk about the “Qualities of a Good Leader,” focusing on the development of good values, decision making, and personal relationships. Council President Fleisher and I were proud to welcome these boys and girls to Town Hall. I am sure the day’s discussions and lessons will remain with them for many years to come, and will be valuable to them and their peers transition to high school and beyond.
