Welcome to the latest installment of the Mayor's Weekly Briefing, which contains a recap of events and news happening around town, upcoming events and community activities. I hope you will join us at these community events, sign up to receive e-mail updates, follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook.

Town Hall closed Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Day
The Cherry Hill Township Municipal Building will be closed Monday, Jan. 20, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Offices will reopen for normal business hours on Tuesday, Jan. 21. Please note that trash, recycling and yard-waste will be collected as scheduled on Monday.

Community to celebrate legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Jan. 19
Residents are invited to help our community celebrate the legacy and life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at a special "Celebration of Diversity" at 4 p.m. this Sunday, Jan. 19, at Holy Eucharist Catholic Church, 830 Kresson Road. Members of Council and I will be among those attending this special celebration, which will feature guest speakers, area choirs, and a keynote address from Pastor Keith Davis of the Dream Center in Camden. This event is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Council #3784, the Cherry Hill African-American Civic Association, and the Township of Cherry Hill. Refreshments will be served. I hope you can join us as we celebrate and remember Dr. King.

Cherry Hill Police roll out electronic ticketing system in patrol cars
The Cherry Hill Police Department this week began using a new electronic ticketing system that streamlines the process of issuing citations, reduces redundancies in the process, and will ultimately allow for more efficient policing. E-ticketing technology is fully automated and enables an officer to issue a printed ticket quickly, while simultaneously uploading information to both Police Records personnel and the Municipal Court. By reducing the amount of time it takes to issue tickets and complete the related paperwork, we will be able to allocate staffing and resources more efficiently, and give our officers more time to proactively patrol Cherry Hill’s streets. Click here to read more about this new initiative. 

NJ American Water plans work next week in Woodcrest

If you have any questions or concerns, contact NJAW representatives John Graham at (856) 764-6920 or Jacquelyn Weaver at (856) 764-6915.

Beck student's anti-bullying video nominated in statewide contest

Farmers Insurance helps celebrate January's Walk with the MayorFarmers WWM.jpg
I'd like to thank Farmers Insurance, a member of the Township Business Council and supporter of my Mayor's Wellness Campaign, for coming out to support this month's Walk with the Mayor, which took place this past Wednesday at Cherry Hill Mall. The two-dozen Farmers employees combined with the "regulars" who have supported the program since its inception, made January's walk one of our most successful yet. If you couldn't join us this week, I highly recommend that you check out Walk with the Mayor on the first Wednesday of another month this year! It's a nice, 2-mile walk and a great chance to meet Township representatives and other community members. We'll meet again on Wednesday, Feb. 19, at 8 a.m. in the Mall's Grand Court, joined by representatives from the Cherry Hill Regional Chamber of Commerce. For more information on Walk with the Mayor or the Mayor's Wellness Campaign, call (856) 488-7878, or email Donna Dovey at ddovey@chtownship.com.              

Report potholes to the Department of Public Works  
The continuous freezing/thawing cycle of winter can wreak havoc on road surfaces, and inevitably leads to a spike in potholes popping up across town. The Department of Public Works is responsible for the repair and maintenance of nearly 260 miles of municipal roads, and has dedicated crews assigned to the task of filling these potholes as quickly as possible. But with such a vast amount of space to cover, these crews rely heavily on feedback from the community. Please: If you spot a pothole, report it to our offices as soon as possible. Report an area of concern online by clicking here, or call Public Works directly, Monday through Friday, at (856) 424-4422. Please be sure as specific a location as possible, and if you are submitting online, feel free to include a photo. Remember that some roads in Cherry Hill are maintained by Camden County and the New Jersey Department of Transportation. Click here for a list of roads and contact information for other entities. Drive safely!

Cherry Hill Fire Department launches smoke alarm campaign

Check back often to see when the CHFD will be in your neighborhood. If you are in need of a smoke alarm immediately, please call (856) 429-7441 to schedule an appointment.

Downs Farm crossing guard honored for 40+ years of serviceMrs Bauman.jpg
Last week, Council Vice President Sara Lipsett and I joined Horace Mann Elementary School Principal Shilpa Dilal, Superintendent Maureen Reusche, and dozens of students and faculty members, to honor Claire Bauman, a beloved crossing guard who has served the Horace Mann community and its students for nearly 50 years. The school recently installed a brick paver outside the building on Walt Whitman Blvd. recognizing Mrs. Bauman's service to the community, and it was my honor to join them for its unveiling. Mrs. Bauman has been a constant presence in the neighborhood for generations, and we thank her for continuing to help guide our children to and from school safely every day.
                                               
Honoring Cherry Hill's longest-standing businesses: Barton SupplyBarton Supply.jpg
Peach farmer and entrepreneur Lewis Barton started an irrigation business out of his Delaware Township home in 1946. The business was moved to its Marlkress Road location in 1964, by Barton's son-in-law, David Barclay. Today, Barton Supply remains on Marlkress Road, and is a locally owned and operated supplier of plumbing, irrigation, drainage, and landscape lighting products. For more information on the company, visit www.BartonSupply.com. 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 and the Cherry Hill Sun. 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.
