Approximate 12% tax increase. Why are taxes going up again in Gloucester Township ?

Gloucester Township, Camden County

The answer is easy. The answer is always easy.
It is SPENDING. Previous stories in GTNews has indicated that just about every year, Gloucester Township Business Administrator states that the budget must go up
as a result of "storms", and the budget is increased. The following year the budget is prepared for that same number of storms. The next year comes and the same number of storms hit, and they request more money for storms knowing that taxpayers won't remember the money allocated for the storms is already in the budget.

So what happens to that money? Well, according to Gloucester Township Administrator Tom Cardis, “Once the budget lapses, that money is gone,”. Just about every year, it's the same thing.

It's a political game called "tax and spend" and Gloucester Township is at the tops in their field.

What makes this even more difficult to residents is that people are leaving Gloucester Township, thus the tax burden is left to those still here. Who makes up for the loss in taxpayer populations? Those still here, and you are seeing it again this year. Does the Mayor and Council reduce spending? The budget every year does not indicate that.

It actually indicates more of the same. Tax and spend.

Run with it and see whether it works. No, not works according to some internal to the company plan, not according to whatever the C-suite is thinking this week, but to put it out into the market and see what we all thought about it. They were ruthless in culling those ideas that did not survive the market but the benefit of being ruthless that late in the cycle was that they got many hugely innovative products that did work. And if the 20% free time arrangement is now being closed down then I think it’s probable that we’ll get fewer of these serendipitous but highly successful and profitable innovations: as well as fewer released that then fail of course. But as with love, better to release and fail than fail to release at all.

FACTS are FACTS MAYOR MAYER. They are not to be IGNORED.

Gloucester Township, Camden County May 23, 2015

الوليد In typical Gloucester Township fashion, Mayor Mayer is quoted in an NJ.com story that despite the census numbers, he "feels" that the town is "still growing".
Many residents and taxpayers may whole hardheartedly disagree.
When you look around the neighborhoods of Gloucester Township, it is easy to see that people are leaving. Businesses may be coming, but are they keeping up with the numbers of businesses leaving? When you give a lengthy tax break, or abatement,leaving stores, and local businesses have been seen the township, some heading to nearby Winslow and other surrounding towns.
It has also been noticed, that some of our more recent arrivals have been feeling pressure from the township administration, to have the township incorporated into their store front signs.صورك الشامل

Politicians have long since used "census" figures to their advantage, even in township as they have set funding and aid to Gloucester Township by the "numbers".

Taxpayers want "growth" to make a difference in offsetting their tax burden. If taxes continue to go up after four "0"s then a 9% increase in the tax levy, the "new" ZERO is now 9% higher. Taxpayers feel growth, when their taxes go down and spending goes down.

Facts are Facts Mr. Mayer. Some times they go in your favor, But don't ignore the facts when they don't.
