Council adopts second consecutive budget with no municipal tax increase
For the second year in a row, there will be no increase in municipal taxes for Cherry Hill taxpayers, under the fiscal year 2014 budget adopted by Township Council on Thursday night. The $64.7 million plan reduced total government spending by more than $540,000 while continuing to fund important municipal services. This budget is stable and sustainable, and continues to give Cherry Hill taxpayers responsible, efficient government. Read more about this year's budget here. You can also find overage of the municipal budget adoption in the Philadelphia Inquirer and Cherry Hill Patch. As always, I welcome your feedback on this and any other important issue in our community. Call my office at (856) 488-7878, or e-mail me at MayorCahn@chtownship.com.

Projects include trail maintenance work along the Croft Farm and Kresson Trail systems, and water sampling along the Cooper River.

Road work scheduled next week throughout Cherry Hill
Please note the following road project scheduled for the week of Sept. 30 to Oct. 4:

  • Motorists should watch for shoulder closures and lane shifts shifts along Brace Road from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every day next week. The New Jersey Department of Transportation will be completing work to install and repair handicap ramps, driveway aprons and curbs between Bowood Drive and Haddonfield-Berlin Road, in preparation for future road reconstruction.
  • Additionally, the Department of Engineering will be “microsurfacing” several municipal streets starting next Tuesday, Oct. 2. Microsurfacing is an application of asphalt emulsion that will extend the life of roadways that are structurally sound but need to be resurfaced. This process ultimately saves taxpayer dollars by extending the lives of our local streets. Weather-permitting, work will be completed on Lucerne Court and Boulevard, Morris Drive, Borton’s Mill Road, Chelten Parkway and Millstream Lane.  Residents will receive notice of the work the day before it is scheduled. If you live on one of the affected streets, please click here for important information. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
