    UPPER TOWNSHIP – A spokesperson with the state Department of Community Affairs said this week that the closure of the BL England power plant in Beesleys Point would not affect $6.2 million in energy tax receipts to Upper Township.

    The money funds half of the township’s budget each year. Officials have said a loss of that revenue would lead to large tax increases or substantial cuts in services.
