Council adopts preliminary tax levy with no increase over previous year
On Tuesday night, Township Council adopted a preliminary tax levy for fiscal year 2014 with no increase over last year. The preliminary levy will fund municipal services for the first six months of the new fiscal year, which begins July 1. My administration is in the process of developing our full budget for the coming year, which will be introduced in August, and I’m proud to say that homeowner will see no increase in their municipal taxes for the second consecutive year. Council and I remain committed to fiscal responsibility, and as we move forward, we will continue looking for ways to maximize the services we deliver, and to deliver them in the smartest, most efficient way possible.

Mayor, Council honor Beck Middle School, a 2013 National School of CharacterBeck Proc for briefing.jpg
Congratulations to the entire Beck Middle School community on being named a 2013 National School of Character. This past Tuesday, I was honored to join with Council President David Fleisher and Vice President Sara Lipsett as we presented the Beck Character Education Team, led by Assistant Principal Al Morales, with a special proclamation celebrating the school's achievement. Beck was one of just 29 schools honored as a National School of Character this year, and it joins past winners Rosa International Middle School, Carusi Middle School, and Stockton Elementary School in receiving the award locally.

Council takes first step in revitalizing old manufacturing site
Township Council took the first step this week toward revitalizing two underutilized properties in town, with the goal of transforming them into premier corporate and commercial facilities. Council directed the Township Planning Board to study a 35-acre manufacturing on Woodcrest Road and a 10-acre site on Route 70 previously slated for an off-track betting facility, to see whether they meet the statutory criteria to be designated as areas in need of redevelopment. Such a designation would enable the Township to redevelop the properties to help attract and retain important commercial tax ratables.
I believe that both of these sites could be transformed into economically viable, thriving, world-class corporate campuses that would suit the needs of major corporations like Subaru that are looking for suburban headquarters. But this week’s Council action was just the first step in a lengthy process. Learn more about this issue by clicking here.

Cherry Hill comes together to honor a fallen heroKane Run for Briefing 2013.jpg
Hundreds of men, women and children turned out to honor a fallen hero at the fourth annual Jeremy Kane Benefit Run, on Sunday, June 9, at Cherry Hill East. The run, which is held every spring in honor of Marine Lance Cpl. Jeremy Kane, who was killed in combat in Afghanistan in January 2010, raises money for student veterans at Rutgers-Camden. Local elected officials -- including all of the Township Council members, Assemblywoman Pam Lampitt, Sen. Jim Beach, and Freeholder Michelle Gentek, turned out to help pay tribute to Jeremy, who is the son of Councilwoman Melinda Kane. In its first four years, the run has raised nearly $60,000 for the scholarship in Jeremy's name, and we hope to see it grow even more in the future. Thank you to everyone who helped make Sunday's event possible. For more information on the run, the scholarship, or Jeremy himself, or to make a donation in his memory, please click here.
