Water main upgrades to start Monday on Borton’s Mill Road
New Jersey American Water has informed my office that they are set to begin infrastructure upgrades along portions of Borton’s Mill Road this coming Monday, Feb. 25. The roadway will remain open during the project; however, delays are expected. The utility company will complete its upgrades in two phases: underground main replacement, to begin next week, followed by upgrades of individual residential lines at a later date. American Water has notified affected homeowners. No residential service disruption is expected during the first phase of the work; sporadic service outages are expected when residential lines are eventually connected to the new main. Similar projects are in the works on Country Club Drive in Woodcrest and Carolina Avenue in Ashland. More information will be posted on the Township website as it becomes available. For more information, call the Engineering Department at (856) 424-3203.

Rosa math teacher receives national honor for innovative methodsDF proc for briefing.jpg
On Tuesday, Council President David Fleisher honored local middle-school teacher Scott Goldthorp, who was recently named the first-ever recipient of the Rosenthal Prize for Innovation in Math Teaching, a national award that recognizes those whose teaching methods positively impact math education in the United States. Mr. Goldthorp, a beloved teacher at Rosa International Middle School, received his award in late 2012 at the Museum of Mathematics in New York, but was honored locally during a PTA meeting earlier this week. Cherry Hill is home to a first-class School District that gives our children the best education possible – and that is due largely to the dedication of talented educators like Mr. Goldthorp. As a Rosenthal Prize recipient, his teaching methods will be replicated and shared with interested teachers across the country. We couldn’t be more proud. Congratulations!
