Government Reform Thoughts

The state Department of Community Affairs has awarded $17.7 million in extraordinary municipal aid grants. Cranford, which requested $1.3 million, was rejected, while Fanwood received $325,000. Cranford sustained significant damage in a flood earlier this year that will affect the township's financial situation. That township deserved extraordinary aid money from the fiscal crisis it suffered. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
