Does anyone know how much of the liquor money they used to balance the budget this year? And how much of the $5M (assuming they have received all $5M) remains?

I'd call and ask but the phone system is still not functioning properly. We know they didn't spend the money on IT or a working phone system They should post all the extensions and a way to reach every department on the website. Website is not current nor is the Facebook page. Just hired four new employees for town hall. With a full staff, new building, and new equipment, why are residents subjected to turn of the century services?

Randy: The Burlington Co Times reports that all money spent last year was replenished into the surplus, so they entered this budget will a full $5M. $2M is being used this year, with a projected additional $1M coming in for the sixth liquor license they put out to bid and anticipated $550K in surplus. So they'd enter next year with a $4.5 million surplus.

Explain how the liquor money spent last year was replenished? From what? Where is the bid for the 6th license? Where does $550k in surplus come from? Where is the transparency when spending, debt and taxes are all higher
