Smoke and mirrors resolution


Make text smaller Make text larger




At the Feb. 24 Vernon Township council meeting, the council passed a resolution to combine the MUA debt into a single and combined issue of township bonds.

Mr. Zuckerman, our business administrator and acting mayor during our mayor's absence, claimed the MUA is an asset of Vernon Township.

Since when?
Mayor Marotta has repeatedly said that township residents won't have to "pay a dime" for the sewers and that as new users come on line, each would pay their share. Does this now mean all Vernon residents are on the hook for these assets instead of the users? Was this really proposed to save a measly 2-$3K? How, down the road, will we be able to distinguish one debt from the other? By the way, our CFO's title was all over this resolution, so where was she? Shouldn't she have been in attendance? Her input might have helped clarify this mess of a resolution.
