MAYORAL COMMENTS

 

Mayor Post thanked the Committee for the nomination of Mayor. He stated that it is an honor to serve as the Mayor. Mayor Post said that he looks forward to performing the job for the Township. 

 

Mayor Post thanked Ms. Schriver for her leadership in the 2006 and stated that she had shown him the way to go in leading the Township in a balanced fashion.  The Mayor recognized the Municipal Staff, Board Members, Committee and Commission Members as well as the Fire Department, Rescue Squad and all of the many volunteers in the Township.

 

Mayor Post stated that in his objectives for the 2007 Year, he would like to manage the municipality to provide a level of service, while at the same time keeping taxes as low as possible. In 2006 for the first time in a while the Township had to increase the tax rate by a penny.  The objective is to keep the rate the same in 2007; however, the Committee must provide the services that insure a safe and healthy community.  There are COAH obligations and prominent projects in the municipality such as the build out of the Freedom House property.  This project will assist the Township in meeting their COAH obligations.  Freedom House is an ongoing project that will require state and municipal involvement.  Mayor Post stated that he would like to see the continuation of Open Space Acquisition in the Township with the remaining funds available.  The Township does have a balance in funds mostly from a State incentive grant and the Township is allowed to match some of those funds with other parties.  Although the Township has obligated all of the Open Space and Farmland Preservation tax money to all of the future funds, the Township can still participate as partners in

Open Space and Farmland Preservation.  There are a few projects coming up in 2007 in which we can help out.  A major goal for Mayor Post is to recover the Nagie funds from the County.  He is looking at a 1st quarter closure. 

 

 

ELECTION OF DEPUTY MAYOR

 

Mayor Post requested a nomination for the 2007 Lebanon Township Deputy Mayor.
