Township moves to regulate cash-for-gold stores
In an effort to help police more efficiently monitor transactions at cash-for-gold and secondhand goods stores in Cherry Hill, Township Council is considering instituting new licensing and reporting requirements for all merchants who deal mainly in the sale of secondhand goods. The new regulations will free up police time and resources, and more importantly, will make it easier to identify when stolen items are pawned or sold. This is an important change in light of recent growth in the cash-for-gold sector here in the Township. Read more about it by clicking here.

Mayor, Council sit down with Congressman Rob Andrews
On Friday morning, members of my senior staff and I, as well as Council President David Fleisher, Councilman John Amato, and Councilwoman Melinda Kane, sat down for breakfast with Congressman Rob Andrews, to talk about the state of Cherry Hill. We had a very positive and informative discussion with the Congressman about various initiatives we are undertaking here in Cherry Hill, as well as issues facing the town. Cherry Hill is a new addition to the Congressman’s district for 2013, and Council and I look forward to working with him in the future.

Bingo for Briefing.jpgThe Township’s first-ever Bingo event drew about two dozen residents to Croft Farm on Friday morning. Participants, joined by Councilwoman Melinda Kane and staff from the Recreation Department, enjoyed refreshments and a good time with friends – and in the process, took home a number of great prizes, including a free trial membership to the Cherry Hill Health & Racquet Club, and gift certificates for ShopRite, Ponzio’s, Short Hills Deli, and Caffe Aldo Lamberti. By all accounts, it was a great morning! For additional fun, free events around town, visit the Recreation Department online at www.CherryHill-NJ.com, or check out the latest edition of the Community Magazine by clicking here.
