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.

Mayor, Council welcome 2015 at annual reorganization meeting Fleisher Swearing In 2015.jpg
This past Monday, the members of Township Council and I began a new year in Cherry Hill's history at our annual reorganization meeting. Council President David Fleisher and Vice President Sara Lipsett were sworn in as Council leadership for the coming year, positions that both have served admirably in for the last several years. For the last three years, Township Council and I have remained committed to making Cherry Hill’s government efficient, effective and accessible. As we begin a new year, Cherry Hill is

 on solid ground, with a strong local economy, vibrant neighborhoods, and plentiful recreational and cultural opportunities. We celebrated a number of highlights in 2014, including:
  • A third consecutive year with no municipal tax increase, while continuing to invest in roads, parks and open space, public safety and other important infrastructure and services;
  • Recognition as both a Sustainability Champion and a New Jersey Healthy Town;
  • New policies that strengthen neighborhoods and make our community safer and easier to navigate;
  • An influx of dozens of new businesses from across all sectors, and continued reinvestment in underutilized properties around Cherry Hill;
  • And the introduction of online bill payments for taxes and sewer bills, electronic billing for sewer, and other e-services that make it easier to do business with Town Hall.
And that’s just a brief snapshot of our accomplishments in this last year. I look forward to continuing our momentum in 2015, with plans for a redesigned website and a new GIS mapping system, and a number of projects aimed at enhancing  local parks, recreational facilities and other infrastructure. As always, I welcome your feedback on our programs and services. You can reach my office at (856) 488-7878, or e-mail me directly at MayorCahn@chtownship.com. Have a wonderful New Year!

Thank you in advance for your support of these projects, and our efforts to promote Dr. King's message and legacy of service and selflessness. For more information, call the Department of Recreation at (856) 488-7868, or e-mail recreation@chtownship.com.

Mayor Cahn honors Beck Middle School teacher Janet McGrath Janet McGrath for Briefing.jpg
This week, I joined Superintendent of Schools Dr. Maureen Reusche, Board of Education member Kathy Judge and Beck Middle School Principal Dr. Dennis Perry to honor an outstanding Cherry Hill Educator, Beck math teacher Janet McGrath. Mrs. McGrath was award a 2014 Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching, the highest honor bestowed by the United States government specifically for K-12 math and science teachers. Established by Congress in 1983, the program recognizes just a few dozen educators nationwide every year. Mrs. McGrath arrived at Beck in January 2011, and in just that short amount of time, has established herself as one of our community's brightest educators. All of Cherry Hill's Public Schools -- and our educators -- are a constant source of pride for our community, and I'm always proud to acknowledge achievements such as this. Please join me in thanking Mrs. McGrath for her work at Beck, and in wishing her all the best as she continues her career.

Cherry Hill honors Eagle Scout Blake Grabenstein Blake Grabenstein Eagle Court.jpg
Last weekend, the Township honored Blake Grabenstein, a young member of Boy Scout Troop 52 in Cherry Hill, as he earned the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. For his Eagle Scout project, Blake installed informational kiosks and dog-waste dispensers along the Old Orchard and Downs Farm Trails. Attaining the rank of Eagle Scout is not an easy task, and it's something just a select few scouts accomplish every year. In Cherry Hill, we have witnessed Eagle Scout ceremonies for dozens of remarkable young men in recent years, and we are proud to recognize their achievement. In the last year, the Environmental Board has overseen four completed Eagle Scout projects, and to date, coordinated a total of 20 Eagle Scout projects that have benefitted open space in Cherry Hill. Please join me in congratulating Blake on achieving his Eagle Scout rank, and in wishing him all the best in the future.
