    EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – A racial discrimination lawsuit filed against Egg Harbor Township and several Township Committee members has officially concluded  more than four years after it was filed by a now retired Egg Harbor Township Police captain.

    But as one local mother found out, it’s not always that easy or…

To the editor:

In fact, I advised the writer that I did not serve on the Planning Board when the billboard was approved. The writer knew I had no role whatsoever with the approval of the billboard.

To the editor:

The Egg Harbor Township Planning Board at its Sept. 16 meeting discussed The Press of Atlantic City’s Sept. 3 editorial questioning its ethics, integrity, intelligence, and decision-making ability regarding its approval of an electronic billboard on the Margate causeway. The board authorized this letter to be sent on its behalf.

It is necessary to clarify a major misrepresentation in the editorial that the pole location and billboard violated state law. Both the state Department of Environmental Protection and the state Department of Transportation formally approved the location of the billboard and determined the billboard to be in compliance with state regulations.
