The Upper Township Committee met Monday evening and was able to shave another three cents off of it’s first local purpose tax levy in more than a half century. The Press of Atlantic City reports that the township committee saved the money by eliminating two part time employees from public works and by savings through anticipated retirements. Upper Township will have its first local purpose tax levy in 57 years thanks to increasing expenses. The township has been able to avoid a tax levy thanks to hosting the B.L. England power generating station and collecting state revenues.
