Open and Shut: Last week, resolutions on Council's ReOrg Meeting agenda were posted on the township website. Alas, resolutions on 1/14 Council agenda have not been posted. Was the openness and easy access to public business just a one-time thing? A resolution Council will consider Monday is one appointing Douglas Heinold as "special counsel." Heinhold is a partner in former Township Solicitor Tom Coleman's firm. http://www.rchlawnj.com/index.php?page_id=11 Wonder if Heinold is being retained to handle all the cases new solicitor Anthony Drollas will have to recuse himself from? And I wonder if Heinold will charge the new, higher rate for council's legal services? (Coleman charged $125/hr.; Drollas is charging $150/hr.) http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/local/burlington_county_times_news/moorestown-names-law-firm-with-strong-political-ties-to-represent/article_0c89f642-5dcc-5d0b-b39a-70b51705a6c4.html
