To the Editor:
I would like to make clear some Barnegat Township problems.
New town hall, police headquarters, public functions properties: There will be no property tax enhance to our inhabitants to deal with the expense of these two tasks. Through fiscally audio procedures like having to pay off our bonding office, minimizing expenditures and ready for supplemental tax income to appear on board via new development, no tax raise for these two tasks will see its way to residents’ tax costs.
Developments: If a developer owns the land, he, by legislation, can produce it as lengthy he meets all the point out, county and area legislation and regulations for residences or retailers. Any contradictory statements to the previously mentioned are simply political in nature.
Barnegat has taken builders to court docket and been effective, but we are not able to squander taxpayer cash with no legal justification.
The new made property grownup community off Route 554 will be a extremely upscale Perry’s Lake (in Manahawkin) with residences starting up at about $280,000 with many facilities and will contribute to township taxes.
The enhancement throughout from town hall was authorized in 1997 as part of the Heritage Bay Advancement.
To clarify, no small business has been rejected by the committee, organizing or zoning boards. A single enterprise not long ago withdrew its proposal. In addition, the city simply cannot select what organizations arrive to city.
Meetings: Several of our older inhabitants discover daytime meetings preferable, and because we have seen approximately an equal variety of men and women come out for equally daytime and nighttime meetings, that together with are living and recorded meetings on Tv, the site Barnegat.web, Nixle alerts and email make us really open up and available.
