Moorestown Township architect Rick Ragan will give a power-point presentation on the municipal complex project at tonight’s council meeting.
The meeting will be held in the Media Center at the William Allen Middle School, 891 N. Stanwick Road, at 7:30 p.m.
Ragan will present information about the four components of the project—library, administration, police, and recreation—and what uses go best together. He will also address whether the existing recreation center should be rehabilitated.
“Council is anxious to make a decision about what we’re going to do where,” said Mayor John Button.
A special meeting between Council and the Town Hall-Library Task Force has been scheduled for Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the township offices at 2 Executive Drive to address any questions that are unanswered at tonight’s meeting.
Three other items are up for discussion at tonight’s meeting.
- Acting Township administrator Tom Merchel will seek direction from council on what to do about the deteriorating light poles at Jeff Young Memorial Park.
- Council will review the Best Practices Survey, which is linked to the release of of the final 5 percent of state aid to municipalities. Merchel has completed that survey, which indicates Moorestown should receive 100 percent of its state aid.
- Council will seek to fill the vacancy on the Library Board of Trustees created when Kim Ferrie resigned last month.
Council also plans to introduce an ordinance that will allow the police department to hire part-time police officers at $20 per hour, and an ordinance to allow a mid-block pedestrian crosswalk on Whittendale Drive.
