Lumberton Township Opens Glenwood Park Playground  in the Hollybrook section of town

Lumberton, NJ – October 5, 2018 –Utilizing a grant from the Burlington County Freeholders, Lumberton Township completely refurbished the Glenwood Park Playground in the Hollybrook section of town.  The Township will also demolish the existing tennis courts at the Village Green Park to make way for two brand new basketball courts and to purchase new playground equipment for the Canterbury Court playground.   Township Officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the opening of the Glenwood Park Playground on October 5, 2018 and expect to open the Village Green Basketball court by the end of October. Canterbury Court Playground construction is expected to be held off until the Spring of 2019.

Mayor Mike Mansdoerfer stated, “Lumberton Township is extremely thankful for the leadership of one of our fellow residents, Freeholder Director Kate Gibbs, along with the rest of the Burlington County Freeholders for their continued support of our town’s active and passive recreation needs.”   “Since the 2011, we have received $1,078,710.00 dollars in grant money from the county and these dollars have already produced a new playground here at the Village Green, along with a Dog Park, Community Garden and Canoe Launch on the Rancocas, we have added sports fields at our Municipal Building Complex as well as completely renovating all of our recreation amenities in the Bobby’s Run Section of town,” added Mayor Mansdoerfer. 

“We look forward to continuing our efforts to improving the recreation amenities our Township has to offer our residents and we look forward to opening our new Basketball Courts at the Village Green later this month,” added Committeeman Jim Conway, who serves as one of the Engineering Project liaisons to the Township Committee.  “With the continued assistance from the Burlington County Freeholder Board through the Municipal Park Development Program, we will be also able to open another new playground on Canterbury Court next spring and we hope to use future grant submissions to help transform the soon to be Township acquired Ironwood Outdoor Park so that all residents have access to its nature trails both on land and on the Rancocas Creek,” stated Committeeman Conway. 

The Lumberton Township Committee originally anticipated that the $200,000 grant would be used to construct an amphitheater.  However after due diligence was completed on the proposed site, it was determined to not be cost effective with all the DEP permit cost needed to authorize the construction of this project.  “We wanted to get the most bang for our grant buck,” Mansdoerfer explained.  “By shifting our efforts from the amphitheater, we were able to rehabilitate three parks.  Looking at these neighborhood improvements here in Hollybrook, I am glad we made this decision to focus on this park first.  I am really proud of the final result and look forward to seeing families enjoy this amenity,” he concluded.

 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. The following is a list of the Students’ Names and the Positions they held:

LUMBERTON SWEARS IN ANOTHER NEW POLICE 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.

Seat Belt Enforcement and Education Campaign to be Conducted Locally as Part of Nationwide  Click It or Ticket   Mobilization May 20 – June 2, 2019

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 20 and running through June 2, 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 motor vehicle occupants to protect themselves on the road,” said Eric Heitmann, Director of the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety.   “Crash statistics show that between 2013 and 2017, seat belt use saved nearly 69,000 lives nationally.” 

In New Jersey, a key focus of this year’s “Click It or Ticket” 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 94.47%. However, adults riding in rear seats are buckling up at a significantly lower rate, only 48% according to a recent survey.

 “For whatever reason there seems to be a disconnect with people feeling they don’t need to buckle up when riding as passengers in rear seats, and this is a concern,” Heitmann said. “By promoting back seat usage of seat belts during our “Click It or Ticket” campaign, we’re encouraging passenger habits that will save lives.”

During the 2018 “Click it or Ticket” campaign, 357 New Jersey police agencies participated in the two-week initiative. As a result of the effort, law enforcement officers issued 19,659 seat belt citations, 4,437 speeding summonses and made 661 impaired driving arrests.
