The Middle Township Committee is working on finding more reductions in its budget, while negotiating contracts. Committeeman Dan Lockwood told Coastal Broadcasting that the township is about $300,000 away from coming under the capped tax increase. Middle Township is negotiating three contracts this year, with police, dispatchers, and public works. Severe flooding has impacted residents as well and township is looking at ways to try and solve those problems. Lockwood said more ideas need to be explored and cuts need to come from all areas of the budget.
