On the Agenda: Jackson Township Council Meeting – February 14, 2017

JACKSON-The Jackson Township Council will host their first meeting of month on Tuesday, February 14th at the Jackson Township Administration Building.

On the agenda, the council is expected to approve the purchase of 1,000 season passes for Six Flags Great Adventure.   Although the township agenda lists the fund allocation as $55,492,  the actual resolution authorizing the of the tickets reveals a $73,999, a very exorbitant discrepancy.

The program, which allows the township to purchase discounted tickets and sell them to the residents.  Last year, the township sold the tickets for $80 each.  With a profit margin of nearly $10,000 in 2016, the agenda did not specify why the program requires $55,492 of additional funding this year.  Perhaps the township can better explain the profit and loss margin of the program Tuesday night and how funds from the 2016 sale were used, if not to purchase new tickets in 2017.

The agenda also notes the discussion of making available another liquor license.

Councilman Ken Bressi is also expected to unleash his plan to raise money for the township by building billboards on township property along Route 195.

The township council is also introducing two ordinances intended to outlaw dormitories within the borders of the township.
