Town council is expected to formally adopt new pay-to-play rules Monday night that will allow businesses to contribute more to political campaigns. 

Some aren't happy about the changes, which up the maximum amounts businesses can contribute to local campaigns and also requires businesses pursuing contracts with the township to disclose exactly how much money they have contributed. Council introduced the ordinance earlier this month.

Council will also transfer one of the Moorestown Mall liquor licenses—which the mall bought for $1 million—over to Vetri Jersey, LLC for use at Osteria (which is expected to open later this fall). 

Town council meets at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the high school, where they will also consider several bond ordinances for a little more than $4 million for capital projects, including road resurfacing and water and sewer improvements. (Visit the township website for the full agenda.)

Wednesday night, stop by the Moorestown Shopping Center (200 W. Camden Ave.) for yet another Moorestown Cruise Night. Donations go to the Moorestown Fire Department.

Also Wednesday night, the Moorestown Theater Company premieres its final show of the summer, The Aristocats Kids, at Hope Community Church. The show, featuring a cast of 6- to 12-year-olds, runs Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

If vetri Amis is excellent then could Moorestown's Osteria be better?

Never been to Amis, but I've been to the Osteria in Philly, and the food there is phenomenal. I anticipate that the Moorestown version will be equally excellent.
