  1. NO TAX INCREASE in 2015 Municipal Budget Introduced by Mayor Janice Mironov and Council Members on March 17, for second year in a row. The municipal component of the local property tax bill remains at the same 2013 and 2014 rate of $0.431 (43.1 cents) per $100 of assessed valuation. This means that for the 2015 average residence assessment of $$258,341, the 2015 municipal tax is $1115. The East Windsor municipal component remains at less than 15% of the total local property tax bill, and is among the lowest amounts in the entire region and well below the statewide average. The 2015 municipal tax levy is well below the available state cap levy amounts. The fiscally conservative budget document retains all existing services and no employee reductions. The NO TAX INCREASEmunicipal budget is a result of the Township's commitment to continually seek out additional efficiencies, cooperative purchasing avenues and service sharing opportunities, a low debt level, and pro-active efforts to carefully plan and to closely monitor expenditures and revenues throughout the year.

  1. NO TAX INCREASE 2015 Municipal Budget Adopted by Mayor Janice Mironov and Council Members on April 21, for second year in a row. The municipal component of the local property tax bill remains the same for 2015, 2014 and 2013 at $0.4316 (43.16 cents) per $100 of assessed valuation. This means that for the 2015 average residence assessment of $258,341, the 2015 municipal tax is $1115. The East Windsor municipal component remains at less than 15% of the total local property tax bill, and is among the lowest amounts in the entire region and well below the statewide average. The 2015 municipal tax levy is well below the available state cap levy amounts. The fiscally conservative budget document retains all existing services and no employee reductions. The NO TAX INCREASE municipal budget is a result of the Township's commitment to continually seek out additional efficiencies, cooperative purchasing avenues and service sharing opportunities, a low debt level, and pro-active efforts to carefully plan and to closely monitor expenditures and revenues throughout the year.

  3. Township Officials Have Designated Former National Lead and Adjoining Site on Wyckoffs Mill Road "Area in Need of Redevelopment" Pursuant to State Law to Redevelop. The two properties, totaling 50 acres, were purchased by a broker/builder and another party has a contingency contract and plans to develop the sites consistent with the master plan and research office zoning. The NL site contains a vacant laboratory and research building constructed in the 1960's, and the adjacent property contains a building constructed in 1975. The structures are all in poor condition and dilapidated, and unoccupied and unused for long periods. The process, approved by the Mayor and Council and the Planning Board, empowers the Township to craft a plan with the potential developer to realize a blueprint for redevelopment of these properties.

  4. 2015 "Sylvia Weiss Senior Citizen Award for Outstanding Service as a Volunteer" Awarded Posthumously to LISTON ABBOTT and JOYCE ABBOTT by Mayor Janice S. Mironov and Township Commission on Aging, and was accepted by Liston and Joyce Abbott's son, Wayne Abbott. Liston and Joyce Abbott, residents of East Windsor since 1968, were both born in the U.S. Virgin Islands where they knew one another since their pre-elementary school days, and married in 1963 after moving to New York City. Better Beginnings Child Development Center, an important and prime focus of their lives, remembers them as two very special people who changed our world for the better. Liston Abbott served as Chairperson of the Board of Directors of Better Beginnings Day Care Center since 1974, where his extensive activities ranged from writing many of the computer programs the organization relies on to this day to tirelessly fundraising to ensure the viability of this important community facility. He also volunteered for a variety of organizations including the United Way, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Mercer County and the Hightstown Human Relations Council. Mr. Abbott has also received the United Way Lambert Award, Better Beginnings Shining Star, Kappa Alpha Psi's Men of Achievement, Council of Community Services and a proclamation for the contribution to Electrical Engineering by the Legislature of the Virgin Islands. Joyce Abbott, who was extensively involved in the community from girl scouts to tutoring young students, was co-founder of "Our Kids," an organization dedicated to immersing children in cultural activities and education on African-American History. She was a long time member of the Central Jersey Network of Black Women and served as president from 2005-2007. Mrs. Abbott also was a member of "People of Color" and a deaconess of Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church. Joyce was honored by the Latina Woman's Council of Mercer County as a "Women in Motion" and received the Betsey Stockton Award from the Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church. The "Sylvia Weiss Senior Citizen Award for Outstanding Service as a Volunteer," presented annually by East Windsor Township, recognizes a senior citizen who has exhibited outstanding service through volunteerism to the community by way of schools, religious institutions, service organizations or directly to the public.

  7. ALERT: Voluntary Drought Watch Tips for Residents to Conserve Water. NJ Department of Environmental Protection last week issued a drought watch for New Jersey's Northeast, Central, andconservewater.jpgCoastal North water supply regions, which includes Mercer County, urging residents in the affected areas to voluntarily conserve water and for the rest of the state to practice wise water use due to continued dry weather and above-average temperatures. The drought watch is prompted by continued rainfall deficits that have decreased reservoir, ground water and stream-flow levels in the three regions. Some suggested water conservation tips include:

    • Do not over-water lawns and landscaping. Two times per week for 30 minutes in morning or late evening typically is sufficient. Use a hose with a hand-held nozzle to water flowers and shrubs.

    • Avoid watering lawns and plants during the heat of the day, as this promotes evaporation and water waste.

    • Use a broom to sweep the sidewalk, rather than a hose.

    • To save water at home, fix leaky faucets and pipes.

    • Turn off the faucet while brushing teeth and shaving.

    • Run washing machines and dishwashers only when full.
