The Cinnaminson Township Committee held a regular session on Aug. 16 and approved three resolutions via consent agenda, including one that affects law enforcement in the school district. 

Resolution 116 authorizes a one-year extension of an agreement for the township to provide a special officer program to the district that is managed by the township police department. 

“It’s proven to be beneficial for both the school district and the township and the community,” Township Administrator Eric Schubiger said, adding that Police Chief Richard Calabrese reviewed the program and made the recommendation for the program’s extension. 

Resolution 117 authorizes an abatement against 224 Stephen Drive for work relating to a grass and weeding violation that is performed by the township’s public works department. An amount of $306 was assessed against the property, but no payment has been submitted. 

Resolution 118 appoints 12 school crossing guards for the 2021-2022 school year, all of whom qualified and passed a medical screening, according to the resolution.

“After being reviewed by the police department and school district, [the individuals listed] will sufficiently staff posts required for this coming school district,” Schubiger said. “So we’re in good shape.” 

The committee also introduced Ordinance 2021-11, which adopts a redevelopment plan for Lots 25, 27, 27 and 28 in Block 1403 on south Route 130. Member Ryan Horner said the resolution is a “crucial step toward seeing the Chick-fil-A project come to fruition.” A public hearing on the ordinance will be held on Sept. 20.

No public comments were submitted at the meeting, including for the public hearing on ordinance 2021-10. That measure establishes a new general legislation section within the Zoning chapter entitled “Any Use Not Expressly Permitted is Prohibited.” 

PSEG has added approximately 13 additional miles of roadway to the original gas main replacement project, Mayor Albert Segrest said. The mayor explained that at the end of the  current project, the township will get roughly 37 lane miles paved. 

“American Water and PSEG have confirmed that neither have planned work in the foreseeable future,” the mayor said. 

During the Veterans Affairs Committee update, Deputy Mayor Stephanie Kravil announced the township will host a 9/11 remembrance and observance at the municipal building at 8:30 a.m. on that Saturday morning. Additional information and reminders will be forthcoming, she added. 

During the meeting’s final comments, Committeeman Ernest McGill thanked township professionals and staff for their work “keeping the township running as smooth as it has.” 

The next township meeting will be held on Monday, Sept.20, at 6:30 p.m.
