August 4, 2014 Township Committee Meeting

Monday came and went and with it another workshop meeting of the Middletown Township Committee took place.

The meeting was typically short but some interesting discussion did take place. Middletown's Township Attorney Brian Nelson, dominated the discussions by introducing the idea an ordinance that would mandate all fire and first aid departments in town to have common bylaws. He also thought each department should be audited annually. I assume the audits would be so that the township could assess the needs of the each organization and allocate funding appropriately.

Or, the annual audits could just be a devise to see how much surplus funds are on hand  in order to confiscate, much like the surplus funds of the Middletown Library were, to help balance and bolster the township's bottom line.

As always, you can download a copy of the Meeting Agenda that contains the discussion items and the proposed resolutions and ordinances that were voted on or presented during the meeting. A box around an item is a link, bringing you further into the document to that resolution or ordinance. At the end of the resolution there will be a link bringing you back to the agenda. Attached to this agenda is also the monthly bill list, so that everyone can see how the Township is spending our tax dollars.
