DPW crews work to patch potholes across town Pothole patrol.jpg
This historic winter has spawned a tremendous uptick in the number of potholes affecting municipal roads. In response, the Township this week launched an aggressive campaign to identify and repair the affected areas. Three crews have been assigned to seek out and fix problem areas, and we have launched a new
Report a Pothole feature on the Township website, so that motorists can report problem spots 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Residents can also report potholes by calling (856) 424-4422. Potholes reported to us on state- and county-owned roads will be referred to the proper authorities. This enhanced pothole-response team will remain in effect for as long as necessary. Click here for additional information. Thank you in advance for helping to keep our roads safe as we emerge from winter and look toward spring.

We’re looking to expand the Mayor’s Citizens Cabinet!Citizens Cabinet Feb 2014.jpg
For the last two years, I’ve had the unique opportunity to interact with Cherry Hill residents, through the creation of my Citizens Cabinet. Every other month, a few dozen residents come together for a casual but enlightening conversation about current events and hot topics in Cherry Hill.  Attendees have the chance to ask important questions and get information directly from me and my administration about new policies and programs, businesses, neighborhood improvements, and hot topics in neighborhoods across town. Our most recent meeting, for example, held yesterday in the Township Community Center, featured an introduction to our new Police Chief, a recap of this winter’s snow removal and pothole-patrol efforts, and a preview of upcoming events. Our conversations are casual, but always lively and enlightening. I am looking to expand the Citizens Cabinet, and add a few new perspectives to this lively and diverse group. The Citizens Cabinet meets every other month from 8 to 9:30 a.m., and if you’re interested and eager to engage your Township officials, I hope you’ll apply.  For additional information, call my office at (856) 488-7878. Interested residents should send a brief e-mail of interest, along with your contact information, to Donna Dovey at
ddovey@chtownship.com. Then, come out and hear directly from me and my key staff, and learn more about what is happening across Cherry Hill. The Citizens Cabinet will meet again in April. I hope to see you there!
