CASH CRUNCH FALLOUT: DISTRESSED COMPANIES CLAMOR FOR SALE-LEASEBACK DEALS
While investment sales have tanked in most U.S. markets across every property type, interest remains keen in sale-leaseback transactions as more cash-strapped companies look at their non-income-producing assets as an alternative capital source for reducing debt or funding operations. Businesses of all types, under pressure to quickly boost liquidity...

Now we will keep a lookout, for homes with red lights on their porches. This could be a new housing trend starting in town (Red Light Bed & Breakfast Inns) so that the property owners can pay for the never ending tax increases, or maybe the Latin Kings have found our town ripe for this type of commercial operation.

Subject: Mayor Fazzone of Burlington
The Mayor and his Administrator are attempting to eliminate the housing/code and building departments and the current employees of the departments and recruit the Township of Willingboro.
Mayor Fazzone thinks he can save over two hundred thousand dollars by bringing in inter-local services. It just happens that the administrator came to our town from Willingboro .
It seems Mayor Fazzone is trying to keep campaign promises he made during his run for office. It's a shame that these promises were made to landlords that are not the caliber of landlord you would want in your town.
The sad part of this is the way Mayor Fazzone is trying to eliminate these positions. You're talking about six full time and six part-time people. The administration has just passed, by ordinance, fee increases to pay for the cost of the housing/code department.
The Common counsel would have to pass an ordinance to approve the elimination of these departments. I would hope that after the presences of the housing/code department of some ten years or so, they would have enough sense to see the value of this department with the employees that enforce it. Nothing against Willingboro , but every day you read in the paper about housing and code issues.
Mayor Fazzone should look at projects on his to do list, like buying window treatments for the Lyceum Hall at a cost of ten thousand dollars for one window.
He brings a riverboat and docks it at our beautiful riverfront that came from below Philadelphia , as an undesirable tenant, for the low rent of two thousand dollars a month and is behind in his rent already.
Our administration decided to put out the expense of over forty thousand dollars for improvements of our utilities for this boat to dock.
Then you have a miniature golf course across the street from the boat that common counsel approved only to find out Mayor Fazzone was one hundred thousand dollars short for the walkways around the golf course. Mr. Mayor wants to cut jobs that are helping with the housing stock of our city, but will hire people for maintenance and running a miniature golf course, with these poor economic times.
I understand that our administration is moving forward with remodeling a room for tourism at the Metro building located at High and Broad Street for the cost of seventy five thousand dollars with an expectance of maybe two thousand dollars per year in revenue.
Mr. John Alexander, an Edgewater park resident, who Mayor Fazzone brought on as a Director, had to hire two additional part time employees, totaling 3 employees, 80 hours, previously the job of one full time person. Then the city had to bring on consultants because Mr. Alexander was not sure how things are done. Sounds like Mr. Alexander, is not a qualified person for the position.
Until Mayor Fazzone came along, I do not ever remember our city needing two administrators, which must be a cost of close to two hundred thousand dollars a year.. Then you have another former Edgewater Park resident, employee, Bill Jenkins, who is a director that is in charge of the departments that Mayor Fazzone is hoping to do away with. I wonder if he will be staying on if the departments go.

Would like to know when the township is going to clean up the graffiti that was reported to them twice in Dec. and Jan? It is on the street post,sidewalk and wooden wall at the end of Jefferson and Cleveland,also on the stop sign at Access and Hendrickson and on the mailbox at Hendrickson and E. Franklin . I was told that as soon as it is pointed out to them, they clean it up right away. I guess because these streets are not main streets, we are forgotten about.
Thanks for posting this Anon, maybe now it will be cleaned up.

Subject: youth brigades
So I was watching the news today regarding the economic stimulus plan to see if any details would be released as far as state aid. In the interim, a report came on about Rahm Emmanuel's book and his feelings that our youth (18-25) should perform a "community service" by going through training and serving their community's needs. I am curious if you or anyone else has heard tell of this coming to reality since EP has now re-enacted its neighborhood watch and is looking to involve more youth in the program. Curiosity got the better of me wondering if there is any link between the two. Any insight you have to share?

Does anyone know if the Township Clerk has released any of the minutes for any of the Township Committee's Executive (Closed) Sessions that have taken place during the past year?
