In the wake of Wednesday's holiday and this morning's snowfall, trash, recycling and yard-waste collection have been delayed by a day in a number of areas across town. Crews will work during the day on Saturday to complete all of this week's routes. If your trash has not been collected, please leave it at the curb.

Mayor, Council look ahead to 2014 at annual ReorganizationCarole swearing in.jpg
Council President David Fleisher and Council members Jim Bannar, Susan Shin Angulo and Carole Roskoph were sworn in as members of Township Council for the next four years during the Township's annual reorganization ceremony, held Thursday night in the N. John Amato Council Chambers at Town Hall. This is Councilwoman Roskoph's first term as a member of Council. In addition to swearing-in our newest council members, the governing body re-elected Council President Fleisher and Council Vice President Sara Lipsett to serve as Council leadership for the coming year. It was a wonderful evening, and I want to thank the many community members who attended, as well as former Mayor Susan Bass Levin and Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt, who helped administer the Oaths of Office to our new council members; Rabbi Larry Sernovitz for his moving invocation; Father Emmanuel Pratsinakis for delivering the closing prayer, and the young women of Cherry Hill West's Fermata for their beautiful rendition of the National Anthem. Council and I look forward to working together to make Cherry Hill an even better place to live, work and invest in the coming year. Click here to read more.

Chief William Monaghan sworn in as Cherry Hill's 10th Chief of PoliceBud swearing in.jpg
On Thursday, we began a new chapter in the history of the Cherry Hill Police Department, as Chief William "Bud" Monaghan was sworn in as the department's new Chief of Police. Monaghan, who previously ran the Department's Administrative Services Division, joined the department in 1995. He replaces Chief Rick Del Campo, who retired at the end of the December after 36 years of service. Chief Monaghan possesses knowledge, experience and a passion for law-enforcement that will help take the CHPD to the next level. Council and I look forward to working with him.

Celebrating the life of Fire Commissioner, former Councilwoman Joyce WalkerJoyce Walker1.jpg
This week, Council and I said goodbye to a dear friend and an all-around wonderful person, Joyce Alexander Walker, who passed away last Sunday at the age of 60. Walker, who was the current chairwoman of the Board of Fire Commissioners and a Township Councilwoman from 1998-2005, was the first African-American elected to serve on Cherry Hill's governing body, and devoted much of her life to the service of others in a variety of ways. Joyce was someone who wasn't afraid to stand up for what she believed in, and to fight for what was right. Click here and here to read more about Joyce's life and contributions to our community. Joyce's family and loved ones are in our thoughts. She will be deeply missed.

Township offers Christmas tree drop-off locations
Cherry Hill Township offers residents two locations to drop off their old Christmas trees for recycling. Residents can bring discarded trees to the rear of the Municipal Building (deposit in the outfield of the softball field off of Weld Avenue) and in the cul-de-sac at the Department of Public Works, 1 Perina Blvd. Both locations are accessible 24 hours a day through Jan. 17. Trees that are left curbside will be handled as yard waste and will be picked up for recycling on your regular trash day. However, trees that are wrapped in plastic will not be collected. For more information, please call the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422.

Honoring longtime Cherry Hill businesses: Kress Wine and McNaughton's

This week, I want to recognize two more businesses celebrating more than 50 years of operation in Cherry Hill: Kress Wine, located at Berlin and Kresson Roads, and McNaughton's Gardens, on Kresson Road. Kress Wine opened in Cherry Hill in 1954, and was preceded by the Hess Tavern. It stands on the site of the Blazing Tavern, which operated there in the 1700s. Today, Kress Wine is managed by Mario Delmonte, and offers local residents an outlet for wine, spirits and beer.

McNaughton's, at 351 Kresson Road, was opened by William McNaughton in 1929 as a South Jersey landscape nursery and has grown to include a second location in Somers Point. The local landmark remains in McNaughton's family, and is operated today by his son, Bill, and grandson, Scott McNaughton. Each of the businesses we've highlighted in the past few weeks has become a living piece of Cherry Hill’s history, and I’m honored to be able to recognize their longstanding investment and presence in our community. Read more about this project in the Courier-Post [http://www.courierpostonline.com/article/20131114/BUSINESS20/311140020/Cherry-Hill-honors-businesses-town-50-years] and the Cherry Hill Sun [http://sj.sunne.ws/2013/11/26/cherry-hill-honors-longstanding-businesses-of-50-or-more-years/] . If you know of a business that has been around for 50 years or more, please let us know by calling (856) 488-7878, or e-mailing me at MayorCahn@chtownship.com [mailto:MayorCahn@chtownship.com] .
