HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – At the Hamilton Township Committee meeting on August 4, Committeewoman Aline Dix objected to an updated employee policy manual going to print due to some discrepancies on employee vacation time. She outlined her concerns in the most recent meeting on August 18.

Dix contended that an action taken at the April 7 committee meeting, at which she was absent,  to adopt the new policy manual overruled an ordinance passed in 2008 that created a two-tiered vacation system. That ordinance created a much less liberal vacation allowance for employees hired after January 1, 2009, while grandfathering in employees already on the payroll.

Mayor Lisa Jiampetti swears in Jovanna Mondragon as part-time deputy court administrator while Mondragon’s sister Sandra Shroyer holds the Bible at the August 14 council meeting. EGG HARBOR CITY – While none of the members on the Egg Harbor City council, or anyone in the audience, were pleased with the amended budget that they passed on Thursday, August 14, it was far more palatable than the one that was introduced in March.

The amended budget raises the local tax rate from $1.797 to $1.83 per $100 of a property’s valuation, compared to the earlier version that would have resulted in more than an 11 cent increase. The increase will result in about a $42 raise in the local tax on a home assessed at $141,000 which is the average home value in the city, bringing the amount to $2,580, exclusive of county, local school and regional school costs.
