LOWER TOWNSHIP – Architect Dan Shousky was present at Monday’s Lower Township Council meeting to answer questions about the Public Safety Building (PSB) and the proposed new facility.

Shousky said in 2011 a committee was formed to look at the current PSB located in the Cape May Airport complex.

Mayor Mike Beck said the resolution could pass by a 3-2 vote, but without four votes they could not pass a bond ordinance to pay for a new police station and municipal court. He said the project would not advance without a fourth vote.
