Mayor Cahn celebrates Ichiban Buffet grand opening Ichiban Ribbon Cutting.jpg
Last week, I joined owners, staff and patrons to celebrate the grand opening of Ichiban Buffet, a new buffet-style restaurant located in the Garden State Pavilions Shopping Center. The eatery began welcoming customers after a soft opening in late December, offering patrons a variety of menu items that include a little bit of everything, including sushi, pizza, meat and potatoes and dessert. Read more about it from the Courier-Post. Please join me in welcoming yet another new business into Cherry Hill, and in wishing the restaurant's owners and staff much success in the months to come.

Spot a pothole? Report it to the Department of Public Works  Pothole patrol.jpg
Winter's cold, ice and snow have created a number of problem spots on local roads. To combat this seasonal epidemic, the Township's Department of Public Works has dedicated crews assigned to identify and repair potholes on local roads as quickly as possible. However, with 260 miles of municipal roads under Cherry Hill's jurisdiction, residents often serve as our first line of defense in identifying areas that have been particularly hard-hit by the elements. If you spot a pothole, we invite you to report it online, 24/7, by 
clicking here, or by calling Public Works directly, Monday through Friday, at (856) 424-4422. 
Several area roads are maintained by either Camden County or the New Jersey Department of Transportation, but don't worry: If you report a pothole on a non-Township road, we will relay the information for you. Drive safely!

Get your Township sewer bill by e-mailebill_logo 3.jpg; enroll by March 10
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.
