Dodged the bullet. Mr. DelBorello made a motion to withdraw the first reading of the Ordinance to approve the Financial Agreement on the Washington Square Redevelopment by Atkins Development. Because the requested documentation was not provided by the Developer, including the School Impact Study, all attending Council members voted Yes to withdraw. What that means is that if the Atkins Development/trading as Washington Square Urban Renewal, L.L.C. wants to continue with the project, it must run through all phases of Council approval.
There was also an award ceremony for two WT Police Officers for exemplary achievement in Gloucester County's Supervision School.
And, yipee skippee, we have a new Municipal Clerk - Let's all warmly welcome Mary Lou Bergh!
The remainder of the meeting was routine and, since it was videotaped, can be seen on channel 9 next Wednesday @7.
Oh, and I had to put in my two cents - My pet peeve WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, A MUNICIPALITY WITH OVER 55,000 RESIDENTS, THE LARGEST MUNICIPALITY IN GLOUCESTER COUNTY NEEDS OUR OWN POST OFFICE. Got nothing but resistance and lame excuses from the entire Council as well as the Mayor. Seems the major stumbling block is that there are too many Washington Townships, but Gloucester Township is Blackwood, Monroe Township is Williamstown, etc. I live in Washington Township, not Sewell or Sicklerville, or Glassboro, or Williamstown - this should be done. I think I will send Mr. Andrews, he's looking for votes, a letter. Sad that I can't go to my municipal government for support.
