 To the editor:

I watched the Upper Township Committee meeting on Sept. 23 with great interest. Committeeman Tony Inserra suggested that Upper Township initiate its own emergency dispatching system. It was explained that our community in Upper does not meet the minimum standards for a population of 90,000 to have its own dispatching system. His concern seemed to focus on the $200,000-plus dollars going to Ocean City when Upper Township residents could be benefitting from this money.

Letters page: Emergency dispatch contract is right for Upper Township

 To The editor:

Wow! It must be getting close to the election. That is the only explanation for Committeeman Tony Inserra’s proposal and letter to the editor concerning moving our dispatching services from Ocean City and to do our own. This is an obvious attempt to embarrass me and my running mate Curt Corson because even a cursory look at our contract for dispatching services or any attempt to obtain facts about how a dispatch center is run would show the folly of his ways.

Letters page: Candidates should have to answer for banked cap

 To the editor:

The story of the school board’s banked cap should be a story long over, but it’s still going on under the radar. Remember a few years ago when the school board proposed a zero increase budget and the taxpayers soundly voted it down? Well, the school board got to bank that cap. That means that they still have the ability to tax you for that money even though it was voted down at the election.
