FOCUSED ON FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY
Mayor David Amlen served as chairman of the finance sub-committee, during his first and third years on the Township Committee. The responsibilities of this position include overseeing all township financial matters especially the municipal budget. In his first year, Mr. Amlen endeavored to control our taxes and used about $3 million from the township surplus to offset property taxes collected from residents. This decision helped to keep our taxes as low as possible during 2011.
DOWNTOWN REDEVELOPMENT, MOVING AHEAD!
Downtown redevelopment is moving ahead at terrific pace. Recently with the help of Union County and the Springfield BID, Mayor David Amlen and Committeeman David Barnett applied for and won a $90,000 grant to assist with downtown redevelopment.
