Gloucester Township, NJ (Camden County) March 29, 2014
Just imagine that your township Mayor and council ask for an 8% increase in taxes. Now add on one school district asking for a 5.5% increase compounded by the other school district wanting another 2%. When all is said and done, the county Freeholders may be asking for their added 2% slice of the pie.
To some, that is why a one party rule, tends to pile on after they are elected. They promise one thing, then after election time they deal you a crushing blow.
When all is said and done, residents of Gloucester Township may very well be looking at an almost 20% property tax increase.
How many will stay? How many will see another tax increase when they leave, with an even smaller tax base?
Next year when red light cameras dollars are gone, how will Gloucester Township make up that loss? Buckle your seat belts Gloucester Township.
