"When are we going to acknowledge as mature, reasonable adults that we have too long tolerated a municipal framework that represents the opposite of everything this century has learned about effective management, efficient control and economy of scale."

Alan J. Karcher,
Multiple Municipal Madness

Will the Princetons be Trailblazers or Left Behind?

The residents of the Princetons have the opportunity to make history in New Jersey on Nov. 8 when they vote, once again, on the issue of consolidating Princeton Township and Princeton Borough.

In the next few weeks, the Princetons can become a model for the state, showing municipalities how to consolidate; from the earliest planning stages through implementation of a completed merger. The Princetons are poised to forever be known in New Jersey for their leadership and courage to connect.

These towns have been at it a long time. Through their previous three attempts at consolidation, laws have been changed and new policies have been created to address the residents’ concerns. These efforts have supported the growing municipal consolidation movement in New Jersey.

Just last week, Gov. Chris Christie threw his support behind municipal consolidation efforts, by proposing the state invest in helping towns merge, spreading the costs over five years with the state offering to pay for the first year’s expenses.

The Princeton Consolidation Commission has recommended consolidation. They based their decision on the comprehensive consolidation study which estimated that the initial average savings would range from $200 to $240 per household. The savings are expected to increase to $400 to $500 over the next three years as redundant staff positions are combined and extra assets are sold or re-utilized.
