Chairman Dave goes to great lengths to explain how all of the additional expenses for moving, new employees, additional hours for payroll, additional cost for the employee benefits, additional utility cost, additional rent, additional legal cost and potential new equipment, are not going to affect the current sewerage rates.Chairman Dave is right on this point, because what he didn't tell you is that the rates have been set for this year (2008), and it is next year that the rates will see the affects of all this new spending.Chairman Dave also explains that the move wasprovided for by surplus funds in the budget. What Chairman Dave didn't tell you was that the Auditor stated in his verbal comments, made while presenting his 2007 audit report to the Authority Members at the Authorities 2008 budget meeting, that the Authority lost money during the 2007 operating year, and based on the expected increases in operating expenses for 2008, the Authority should consider increasing the sewer tax to offset those increased cost. The Auditor's comments were made prior to the unplanned additional cost associated with the move, additional employees and legal cost Chairman Dave spoke about in his article.Chairman Dave and the Authority are about to do to the Edgewater Park sewer tax payers, what the Township Committee did to the Edgewater Park taxpayers over the past 4 years. Chairman Dave and the Authority, will deplete the surplus for day to day expenses and then increase the sewer taxes next year to cover the additional operating expenses for this year.Did you also see were Chairman Dave and the Authority also want the Sewer Authority Rate Payers to also pay to expand sewers to areas of Edgewater Park that do not have sewer now? This is a great deal for Developers, so now they can build residential high density housing on land that was supposed to be preserved for farmland or open space, and who now will not need to pay for that expenses, and we the Sewer Tax Payers get to pick up the tab.

Good By (Sob) Beverly Councilman Scott Hitchner and Edgewater Park, pucker up for the BIG TAX BANANA

The Edgewater Park Sewer Authority was the subject of conversation during the July meeting of the Willingboro MUA. Evidently the Edgewater Park Sewer Authority has not paid the Willingboro MUA for services rendered.
"The Treasurer said that he had a conversation with the Executive Director of the Edgewater Park Sewerage Authority about the unpaid bill that was due in June.
He continued that their Executive Director provided answers that didn’t make sense to him and seemed just to be excuses, the conversation ended abruptly.
The Executive Director said that he too expressed concern to the Edgewater Park Sewerage Authority’s Executive Director, Mr. Conard, and met with him last week. He said that one of the reasons given by Mr. Conard was that they did not receive the meter readings from New Jersey American Water co. until a few days ago.
Mr. Bateman said that he suggested to Mr. Conard that we prepare the quarterly billing and forward it to them for payment.
Mr. Conard was agreeable to that and Mr. Bateman explained that the Treasurer had prepared an Excel Spreadsheet for the Edgewater Park Sewerage Authority many years ago that only required them to enter commercial water meter readings. This amounted to about 90 meter readings out of a total of nearly 4,000 accounts.
He said our Billing Clerk would use this spreadsheet to prepare our invoice to
Edgewater Park Sewerage Authority and that we would get the meter readings from New Jersey American Water Co.
He also said that Mr. Conard would now prepare the payment to us for their quarter ending May 2009 so that we could expect a check in August." 21 July 2009

Why are they smiling?
Because they know that it doesn't matter how much they increase your taxes and except campaign donations from special interest groups, they assume you will still vote for them.
Check this Corzine TV AD link and enjoy the hypocrisy.
Gee, looks like the future is now.
Just remember the history and the broken promises made by this group of elected officials, to change the way government serves the people.
It is the same promises made by all five members of the Edgewater Park Township Committee.
You just got your new 2009 property tax bill and your new sewer bill. Did yours go down or stay the same? No! Well keep voting the same way each election and you will not be disappointed by the results, your taxes will never go down or stay the same. They will continue to increase at a rate greater then the rate of inflation.
One last thing Edgewater Park, the Planning Board will give final approval to a developer to build a Town Home/Condo complex on the old Drive Inn/Kings property.
The township committee claims that the project will be age restricted with some units classified as affordable housing.
Just remember this fact! The current elected state legislators and governor, are proposing that if a developer cannot market his development to enough seniors, the developer can appeal to a judge asking them to repeal the senior requirement for the development.
If you think this senior requirement will protect us from more school children and higher taxes you are sadly mistaken.
Just remember the NJ state history of affordable housing planning and the reason Edgewater Park has so many apartments and condos. It is because the former township planning boards believed the NJ state legislators back in the 1960's and 70's when they (legislators) told local elected officials that the town would never have to maintain the streets, drainage ponds or pay for street lighting and trash pick-up if they approved zoning allowing the building of these multifamily units. This was a way of encouraging the building of affordable housing in the state at that time.
Lets see, Edgewater Park changed its zoning and allowed builders to build 1/3 of the township residential housing as apartments, 1/3 of the township housing to be built as condos and the remaining township residential housing to be built as single family homes.
And what was our reward for doing this? No credit for any of the multifamily homes built before the 1980's and a requirement to build more affordable housing units.
Do you really trust your elected officials when they tell you that this new project will only have seniors. If you want to see how this requirement works just ride around Silver Park and see the units that have families living in them that are under 55 years of age.

The Edgewater Park Reporter learned that Beverly City's Administrator, Barbara Sheip has unexpectedly resigned effective immediately! More on this as it unfolds.
The Edgewater Park Reporter has also learned of a dust up between Burlington City Business Administrator Eric Berry and Mayor Jim Fazzone. The dust up was over Mayor Fazzone wanting Eric to rehire a City Employee who left City Hall under police escort several months ago. Mr Berry is out on temporary medical leave.
Maybe Eric should speak to Beverly Cities "Car 54's" friend, the "Medicinal Salesman" about some good hallucinogens to help him mellow out and overlook a few things.
What a week, Michael Vick with the Eagles, Buono with "Don't Cry For Me Argentina", they made me do it line, Beverly's Administrator quiting and Burlington City Administrator out on medical leave because of pressure from the Mayor.
Did I get this correct Mike?
