Seat Belt Enforcement and Education Campaign to be Conducted Locally as Part of the Nationwide Click It or Ticket Mobilization beginning May 21 through June 3, 2018

Law enforcement officers from the Lumberton Township Police Department will join with police from around the country in cracking down on unbuckled motorists and passengers as part of the national “Click it or Ticket” campaign.

Beginning May 21 and running through June 3, the annual “Click It or Ticket” national mobilization utilizes high visibility seat belt checkpoints and saturation patrols, in combination with local and national publicity efforts, to reiterate the life-saving value of seat belts.

“Using a seat belt is the simplest way for a driver and his or her passengers to protect themselves when traveling,” said Gary Poedubicky, Acting Director of the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety.   “In 2016, it is estimated that more than 14,500 lives were saved nationally by the proper use of seat belts.”

Poedubicky added that a key focus of this year’s campaign is to promote seat belt usage by adults in all seating positions in the vehicle, both front AND rear seats. The front seat belt usage rate in New Jersey currently stands at 94.07%. However, adults riding in rear seats are buckling up at a significantly lower rate, only 48% in the most recent survey. “For whatever reason there seems to be a disconnect with people feeling they don’t need to buckle up when riding as a passenger in rear seats, and this is a concern,” he said.

During the 2017 “Click it or Ticket” campaign, 350 New Jersey police agencies participated in the two-week initiative. As a result of the effort, law enforcement officers issued 17,792 seat belt citations, 6,363 speeding summonses and made 976 impaired driving arrests.

New Jersey American Water Main Flushing 5/14/2018 to 6/2/2018

New Jersey American Water to Start Annual Spring Cleaning

Water main flushing begins in Lumberton Township on May 14th through June 2nd

VOORHEES, N.J. (March 5, 2018) – This spring and into the summer months, New Jersey American Water will perform its annual cleaning of the water distribution system to help ensure that customers continue to receive high-quality, reliable water service. Beginning this week, New Jersey American Water will begin annual maintenance to flush out harmless mineral deposits that may have built up in the pipe’s inner walls.

Flushing the water mains involves loosening sediment by pumping a high velocity of water into the pipes then out through open fire hydrants. The service areas that will be impacted and dates when flushing begins are posted at www.newjerseyamwater.com, under Alerts.

While water mains are being cleaned, it is common for customers to notice short periods of low water pressure or discolored water. If customers experience temporary water discoloration, New Jersey American Water recommends running the water until it is clear. The following steps are also encouraged:

  • Draw water for cooking prior to the flushing period
  • Store a large bottle of water in the refrigerator for drinking
  • Check for discolored water before using the washing machine or dishwasher
  • If water pressure or water volume seems low after flushing has been completed, check faucet screens for trapped particles.

In addition to viewing the schedule on the company’s website, customers also have the option to be updated on the local flushing schedule via phone call, text or email by enrolling in New Jersey American Water’s CodeRED customer notification system at www.amwater.com/myaccount.

Lumberton Township Committee & Schools Partner For “Be A Municipal Official For A Day” Program

                April 26, 2018 – Lumberton Township – At the April 24, 2018 Lumberton Township Committee Meeting, students from the Young Republic Club, the student government for the Lumberton Middle School, took the helm of Township Government for the second annual “Be a Municipal Official for a Day.”  In 2016, students formed the Young Republic Club as a democratically elected student government, with two parties, the Blue Party and the Gold Party.  They have adopted a constitution and Bill of Rights for their fellow students, and represent them before the School District’s Administration and the Board of Education. During Tuesday Night’s Township Meeting each student elected official was paired with one of the Township’s Elected or Appointed Officials, to conduct an actual Township Committee Meeting.

                “For the past few years, our Township and School Officials have worked closely with each other through quarterly meetings to ensure our resources are being used to the fullest, due to these meetings we have produced further shared services between our two entities which include providing a School Resource Officer, vehicle maintenance and fueling services, in addition to this second annual event geared toward engaging our local students in the role of the local government in their community,” stated Mayor Mike Mansdoerfer.  “Last night we welcomed these students to the Township Municipal Building, took them on a tour of our departments and had them shadow our local officials through our regular township meeting, allowing them to truly take part in conducting the business of Township Government with our Township Committee Members affirming each of their actions,” added Mayor Mansdoerfer.

                Prior to the 7:30pm start to the Township Meeting, each student was given the opportunity to sit down with the Elected or Appointed Township Official they would be shadowing, to discuss their role in the meeting and how each would contribute to enacting the items on that evening’s agenda.  Actions taken by our Student Leaders included adopting an ordinance restricting parking to residents only near Virtua Hospital, amending fees for the Township’s Construction Department, amending two employment contracts, providing contact representatives for the BURLCO JIF, adding grant funds to the 2018 budget to include resources to pave Allspice and Savory Way, plus the remaining part of Nassau Road, awarded a contract for repairs of a Storm water line behind the Post Office and Buttonwood School and paid the Township’s bills.

                “We hope that tonight was a great learning experience for our local students and that most importantly they had fun running their Town’s government for a day,” concluded Mayor Mansdoerfer.

LUMBERTON SWEARS IN ANOTHER NEW OFFICER

LUMBERTON SWEARS IN ANOTHER NEW OFFICER

Keeping its promise to the residents, Mayor Mike Mansdoerfer administered the oath of office to Erik Jarvis as a Special Law Enforcement Officer Class 1.  Officer Jarvis increases the size of the police department to 21 officers.

“Officer Jarvis has previously served as the Chaplain for the department.  Even as our newest officer, his background, education and training transcends a new leadership with his fellow officers and further increases the professionalism, humbleness and kindness that our community demands in law enforcement,” said Mayor Mike Mansdoerfer.

“Although the recession forced a scaling back of the size of our police department, we have been working diligently to grow back the department in a way that is fiscally responsible.  We are pleased that we have been able to add officers while reducing taxes for the second straight year.  Our plan continues to come to fruition as we add officers while reducing taxes now for the second year in a row.  It is a pleasure to add Officers like Erik Jarvis to the force when you know how hard we worked to bring fiscal order back to the budget,” said Committeeman Jim Conway.

Class 1 officers in the State of New Jersey are part time officers who have obtained Special Law Enforcement Officer Certifications.  They are authorized to perform routine traffic details, spectator control and similar duties.  Officers have the power to issue summonses for disorderly persons and petty disorderly persons offenses, violations of municipal ordinances and violations of Title 39 (traffic) offenses.

“With the swearing in of Officer Jarvis, the Township Committee is one step closer to meeting its goal of 22 officers.  We look forward to completing this objective by hiring one more full time officer in 2018,” said Mansdoerfer.

“Last year we were able to fund returning an officer into the school system, which we identified as an imperative need.  With the series of tragic events we have witnessed around the country lately, I am proud that Lumberton was ahead of the curve in recognizing student safety as a top priority.  Now to have Erik Jarvis serving on our force, we have taken yet another giant leap forward.  It’s another great day for Lumberton,” said Deputy Mayor Kristin Januseski.

LUMBERTON LOWERS TAXES FOR SECOND YEAR IN A ROW

April 2, 2018 – Lumberton Township – The Lumberton Township Committee adopted its 2018 budget on Tuesday evening which lowered the local purpose tax for the second year in a row.  The local purpose tax is lowered from .411 to .406 per $100 of assessed value which represents an approximate savings of $16.00 for the average home assessed at $299,734.00.

“We are thrilled to be able to support and adopt a sound fiscal budget which lowers taxes,” said Mayor Mike Mansdoerfer.  “This year was a culmination of more hard work and penny pinching, evaluating every dollar spent to make sure that we are good stewards of our residents’ taxes.  We know how hard our residents work to earn their income and want to ensure that we are as equally protective when their tax dollars are allocated to services,” he continued.

The 2018 budget allocates $8,750,904 in spending.  This is actually $1,644,931  less than the Township spent in 2008 and continues a decade long trend of stable or declining spending.

The Township’s budget funds all critical tasks of the local government.  “We developed a plan to address our community needs including building the new Emergency Services Building without increasing our debt service obligations.  Most importantly, we allocated funds in the budget to bring a school resource officer back into the schools,” said Deputy Mayor Kristin Januseski.

The Township’s bond rating is AA Stable, confirming the bond market recognizes the Township’s sound fiscal planning.

“Our budget also uses grants and outside funding sources to help continue to make improvements to our infrastructure,” said Committeeman Jim Conway who is charged with overseeing many of the town’s road and improvement projects.  “This year we will again pave and repair more roadways and improve our parks and recreation system,” he concluded.
