Quotes

"Imagine a web woven by a spider on LSD and you might see a frightening similarity to the map showing the jurisdictional outlines of our 566 municipalities in NJ. Present the current facts and statistics of the situation to a systems analyst and you can expect howls of laughter. Given a free hand to reconstruct and reconfigure the present map, no one would attempt to justify a replication of the existing system."

Alan J. Karcher,
Multiple Municipal Madness

South Bergenite Features Upcoming Courage to Connect NJ Forum

Residents of Rutherford and surrounding communities are invited to an open forum on Wednesday, June 8, at 7 p.m. to discuss how municipal consolidation can provide much needed tax relief.

Courage to Connect New Jersey, a non-partisan, non-profit organization, will sponsor the program, which will be held take at the Rutherford Borough Hall Council Chambers.

The forum will also include discussion on the second edition of “Courage to Connect New Jersey Guidebook: The Tools for Municipal Consolidation,” published this month. It is a comprehensive manual that provides step-by step measures that residents and local officials can take to form municipal consolidation study commissions and, ultimately, consolidate communities.

The program is free and open to the public; residents of Rutherford and other communities in Bergen County are encouraged to attend. To learn more about Courage to Connect New Jersey or for a free copy of the guidebook, visit the organization’s website: www.CourageToConnectNJ.org or email info@couragetoconnectnj.org.
