‘Path To Progress’ Website Launched In Support of Fiscal Reform Proposals

Provides Forum for Recommendations by the Economic & Policy Workgroup to Reduce Costs, Find Efficiencies & Maintain Fiscal Stability

Trenton – Following through on the recommendations by a blue ribbon panel that address the state’s most challenging fiscal problems, a website entitled “PathToProgressNJ: Policies To Save New Jersey” was launched today to provide a forum on the proposals to avert looming financial crises, help maintain fiscal stability, reduce the costs of government and allow the state to support vital needs and services.

The bipartisan workgroup reassessed the fairness, adequacy, efficiency and affordability of the state’s current revenue structure across all levels of government and reexamined the delivery of government services to develop its findings and recommendations.

The product of seven months of work by the 25-member panel of experts in public finances, the release of the 30 recommendations marks the first step of an ongoing process to involve stakeholders and the general public in an informed debate about how to put New Jersey on the path to progress.

The website provides a source of information on the severity of the fiscal problems that confront state and local government as well as explanations on the proposals to address them.

Residents can contact Mark Magyar, email address mmagyar@njleg.org regarding the State of NJ Path to Progress if they have any ideas or thoughts on the Path to Progress Report.

Hammonton Spray Message August 22, 2018

“Weather permitting, the Atlantic County Office of Mosquito Control plans to

treat parts of Hammonton as part of its ongoing effort to control adult mosquitoes. The first area to be treated is bounded by Packard St., Fairview Ave., Thirteenth St., Grand St., Passmore Ave., Egg Harbor Rd. and Grape Street.”

“The second area to be treated is bounded by Egg Harbor Rd., Lakeview Ave., Lakeshore Dr., White Horse Pike and Weymouth Rd.”

“Spraying to reduce adult mosquitoes using ground application equipment will take place on Thursday evening, August 23rd, between 8:00pm and 10:30pm. Ground spraying will be done using Scourge, the trade name for resmethrin, applied as an ultra-low volume aerosol.”

The EPA does not require relocating or taking special precautions during mosquito control spraying, people may choose to avoid or minimize exposure by:

* Staying indoors during application to immediate area

* Keeping windows shut, window fans and air conditioners off (or set to circulate indoor air) during spraying

* Keeping children’s toys indoors

* Keeping pets indoors, as well as their food, water dishes and toys.

The Atlantic County Office of Mosquito Control collected two WNV positive mosquito pools in Hammonton. We plan to conduct a truck ULV spray on Tuesday, August 21, between 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm. This is weather dependent.
