Well it looks like this year we won’t raid the road or police budget because we just approved an emergency budget to pay legal bills.
Administrator Mekovetz stated that the Township has fa llen short on the legal line item
of the budget and this resolution is appropriating $185,000 to cover future legal bills
from present to the end of the year. Attorney Dragan stated that there are currently
approximately ten (10) cases with legal expenses pending, including the airport, sewer
capacity allocation lawsuit, the affordable housing litigation, the Waypointe litigation, a Ryland Developers zoning lawsuit, labor issues, tax appeals, planning board litigation
and an OPRA case.
