The Township official says the Township hopes that this large step will prompt the County as well as the State to do their part by pitching in and placing those eligible. But eligibility is key.
Tomorrow, the Township will once again be in front of a Judge in Toms River as the Township attempts to cut down the list of the eligible residents by approximately 50%, Township officials say. The ones who didn’t conform to their part of the deal from the time the census was taken and documented, should be removed from the list and not be eligible for housing, officials said.
The $250,000 will be coming from taxpayer moneys, officials say, though it was noted that keeping the homeless camp in existence will prolong the burden on the taxpayers via usage of the emergency and other Township services, as it has for years. [TLS]
