A new town hall in Rockaway Borough?

Do not bet on it …

The borough council is proposing to buy an old lumber yard in town for $1.5 million and to convert the 12-acre site into a municipal complex.

This would make sense if the economy was roaring, but not now.

Town halls are difficult projects; The main beneficiary of town halls are elected officials and employees, not average residents.

    Fred, You are right.Thank you for pointing this out. I can tell you how some of this stuff works.I pay property taxes in Morristown the County seat.The powers that be bought the old Benificial building on South st. Did our taxes go down? Not yet. Who benifited? You tell me. Life goes on as usual in New Jersey.Many of the tax payers are asleep so taxes keep going up.Too many of them assume the elected officials are looking out for them.They should give many of those people the Academy award.They fool so many every year.
