Council takes second look at affordable housing ordinance
Earlier this month, Superior Court Judge Ronald Bookbinder invalidated the ordinance. Some residents brought forth a lawsuit challenging the legality of the rezoning.
“The judge invalidated the last ordinance because it was deemed to have been not adopted in strict conformance with procedures set forth in law,” said Township Manager Thomas Neff.
Township in time crunch to get to work on water facilities
Moorestown Township has found itself in a bit of a time crunch as it moves forward with upgrades to its water treatment facilities. At a recent council meeting, two ordinances appropriating more than $30 million in bonds for the proposed upgrades were passed on first reading before receiving bids back from potential vendors.
Township Manager Thomas Neff said, at this point, these costs are only estimates.
