>FYI – Special Middletown Township Committee Meeting Scheduled For Today Cancelled

>Just an FYI to readers that thought that there may be a special meeting of the Middletown Township Committee this afternoon at 5 pm, the meeting has been cancelled.

No reason was given on the Township’s website for the canceling the meeting, but you can be sure that it was cancelled because no agreement was reached with either the SOA or PBA unions on contract givebacks before tomorrow’s looming Township lay-off.
As they say, “Tomorrow is another day”.
So let’s see if tomorrow’s meeting goes on as planned.
