To the editor:

Committeewoman Aline Dix asks valid questions at Hamilton Township public meetings. She brings up important issues that need to be addressed, discussed and resolved. Isn’t that the reason for the meetings? Why is she cut off and stopped from asking questions? I don’t hear many questions from other committeepersons.

The former Wheaton property at the intersection of Mill Street and Old Harding Highway continues to sit in limbo due to ongoing litigation. HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – Tax assessor William Johnson told the Township Committee at a meeting Monday, Oct. 6 that the township reassessment is about 80 percent complete.

The reassessment was authorized last year in an effort to create a more equitable valuation after a large number property owners filed tax appeals.

Johnson said that reassessments of commercial properties, which comprise just less than one-third of all ratables, began two weeks ago.

EGG HARBOR CITY ­– New rules governing which high school students in the Greater Egg Harbor Regional High School District can attend will be getting a second look to see if exceptions are warranted to keep siblings together.

On Monday, Oct. 6, the Board of Education again heard from parents in the Laureldale section of Hamilton Township and the South Egg Harbor section of Galloway about a policy decision made by the board Sept. 22 that takes away the option for residents in those areas to send their children to Cedar Creek High School in Egg Harbor City, the district’s newest school which opened in 2010.

An outdoor ceremony to unveil the school’s pool as the Margaret A. Stringer Aquatic Center was moved indoors to the school’s auditorium due to the inclement weather. That however, in no way, dampened the spirits of those who were there to honor Stringer.

Letter: Confessions of a former Dix supporter Letter: Confessions of a former Dix supporter To the editor:

My name is Harry Rogers, and I am a recovering Aline Dix supporter. I confess that I campaigned for her twice, donated to her campaign twice and went door to door in support of her candidacy. For these misguided actions, I must sincerely apologize to the voters of Hamilton Township.

I was once captivated with Ms. Dix’s activism and encyclopedic grasp of trivial facts. When in 2011 she accused the township committee of “multimillion dollar bond malfeasance,” I once again marveled at her grasp of the situation. On the strength of her allegations the committee called in state inspectors despite coming off two years of spotless audits.
