More Audio From Tuesday Night’s Township Committee Meeting; Former Committeeman Tom Wilkens Comments On Swim Club Closing

In this audio clip from last Tuesday night’s Middletown Township Committee meeting, hometown hero, former Olympian and Township Committee member, Tom Wilkens addressed the Township Committee about the sudden news that the Swim and Tennis Club would not be operational for this coming summer season, during the public comments portion of the Township Committee meeting that took place on January 19th.

He expressed his understanding of the issue as a former member of the Township Committee, former commissioner of the Swim Club Utility and current member of the Middletown Swim and Tennis Club and wondered if all possible options for keeping the swim club open had been considered.

More Audio From Tuesday Night’s Township Committee Meeting; "What about the kids?"

I have a few more audio clips from last Tuesday night’s Township Committee meeting to post concerning the Middletown Swim and Tennis Club.

In this clip you can hear a young lady addressing the Township Committee during public comments and asking them, in light of all the budget cuts enacted by the State and local government when will someone ask the question “what about the kids ?”

It’s Your Town – Newsletter Volume 3, Issue 19- 9/19/11

Once again I am a little late at posting the latest edition of It’s Your Town newsletter, the newsletter was sent out to subscribers on Monday.

This edition is covers the Township Committee meeting held on Monday night September 19, 2011. Inside you will find a wealth of information that a person wouldn’t normally know about unless they attended one of the Township Committee meetings themselves.
For instance, there was a public hearing on the new snow removal and brush and leaf removal ordinances and an update on the time frame of having Hubbard Ave repaired (it happens to be approx. 4 weeks).
During public comments a question arose about the Township’s Solar Project that has now been downsized from 4.1 mega watts (MW) to 2.8MW, the commenter wanted to know why. There also seemed to be a discrepancy in a bond issue that had a perceived $100K error that the commenter asked about but the question went unanswered.
If the Township won’t broadcast these meetings over it’s public access T.V channels than this newsletter is the best record of what actually transpired during these meetings.
