Cherry Hill Township and the AARP have once again partnered to offer seniors free tax-preparation assistance from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Tuesday and Friday until April 14. Tax-Aide volunteers will help residents over 55 prepare their 2014 state and federal tax returns, as well as Homestead Benefit Credit and Property Tax Reimbursement forms.

Mayor Cahn welcomes Cooper EDCC class to Town Hall Cooper EDCC 2.jpg
On Wednesday, we had a very special group of visitors to Town Hall, when Cooper Elementary School’s EDCC Kindergarten class joined us for a tour of our municipal offices and the Cherry Hill Police Department. The children enjoyed a tour of police headquarters, dispatch, the squad room, the Chief’s Office, and a look inside a police car. Back at my office, I answered questions about my job as Mayor, and what it’s like to run our wonderful community. Visiting with our youngest residents is always a pleasure, and a highlight for myself as well as the kids. Thanks to the teachers at Cooper School for arranging the visit! 

Paperless billing available for Township sewer bills ebill_logo 3.jpg
Cherry Hill now offers paperless billing for all residential and commercial Township sewer bills. Electronic billing makes information easier to access, and reduces costs associated with printing and mailing sewer bills. Homeowners must enroll by March 10 to ensure the change takes effect for the 2015 residential sewer bill. Commercial sewer accounts must enroll by April 10. Click here to learn more.

Mayor Cahn joins teen author Kyle Dixon to speak at YALE School Kyle Dixon 2-5-15.jpg
Earlier this week, I joined Cherry Hill resident Kyle Dixon at the YALE School as part of his "You're Never too Young To Achieve Greatness" book tour. At just 13 years old, Kyle has an amazing story to tell. He’s already a published author, whose book “Jay Bubblebee,” about a bee without wings, teaches an important lesson for all of us. While Jay Bubblebee’s disadvantage would keep the average bee down, he is determined to "beecome" great. On his book tour, Kyle encourages school children around South Jersey and Philadelphia to go beyond who they are, and not wait to be great. Thanks to Kyle for inviting me to join him on Thursday. He’s an inspirational young man and a wonderful example for people everywhere! 

Report potholes to the Department of Public Works  Pothole patrol.jpg
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. You can report an area of concern online by clicking here, or by calling Public Works directly, Monday through Friday, at (856) 424-4422. Please be sure to include as specific a location as possible. 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!
