Moorestown to Offer Final Liquor License

Each of the first five licenses the township distributed has brought in about $1 million.

Moorestown's final liquor license will soon go out to bid.

The township has six liquor licenses it is permitted to put out for bid after voters approved the sale of alcohol in 2011. Five of the licenses have already been distributed, and each license has brought in about $1 million.

At the council meeting last Monday, Mayor Chris Chiacchio said the township was allowed to issue six licenses, and that's what it should do, according to the Burlington County Times.

"We've moved forward well on this issue," Councilman Greg Newcomer said Wednesday morning, adding the township has worked hard to make all the licenses available in a specific part of town. "We've made measured progress. It's a good thing."

The specific area Newcomer refers to includes the Moorestown Mall and the East Gate Square Shopping Center.

Township Manager Scott Carew and Township Clerk Patricia Hunt are in charge of putting together the bid.

Bama, why are our employees still picking up trash at the new town castle? 3 private sanitation companies in town? 3 months and counting; why aren't the phones and computers functioning at 100 percent? Are our police and court employees safe? Do the phones and computers function in those departments? A police department without working phones for 4 plus weeks? How much money are we saving with private haulers? Residents told we need to eliminate positions, good services gone, positions cut, but how many people have been hired since? No offense mr no, but I want to know where my taxdollars are being spent. As it appears not on lowering my taxes or on improving my services.

So you claim you cant get answers (though I doubt any email went out to council with these questions). Then if you are so passionate for answers, go to the council meeting Monday night, on record and on camera, and bring these items up publicly. Look forward to watching the dialogue on YouTube come Tuesday

Best you have mr no? Same answers I received when I sent emails. Nothing, no response I'll keep asserting my rights to question those receiving taxpayer funds until we see some written answers. If I want lip service I'll go to a council meeting. I want action
Riddle me that June 20, 2014 at 05:48 PM
"You want answers? .. I want the truth!... You can't handle the truth!"
