The auction for the license was held on March 26, and the process was finished at the meeting, according to Palmer.

“The license was awarded because there’s verification and background checking that needed to happen,” Palmer said.

According to the resolution, the Cherry Hill Township Police Department reviewed and investigated the application, voicing no objections to the location.

The license went into effect July 1.

• A resolution to authorize repairs on the Scarborough Covered Bridge, located on Covered Bridge Road, was passed.

On May 26, an accident on the bridge caused damage to the pedestrian walkway on the east side, according to Palmer. The bridge is more than 50 years old. According to the resolution, M.L. Ruberton Construction, Inc., was approved for the project. It has repaired other bridges in the past.

Funds for the project were appropriated under Reserve Property and Liability Insurance. Additionally, the driver’s insurance company will be providing up to $50,000 for the repairs.

“The project will not cost the taxpayers,” Palmer said.
