Commissioner Doria: All Municipalities Will Share State Budget's Pain

Joseph V. Doria, Jr., commissioner of the Department of Community Affairs,  told Ocean County's mayors that the state is going on a pay-as-you-go basis, which means budget cutbacks and less state money for municipalities. A question and answer session at the March 18 meeting of the Ocean County Mayors' Association touched on numerous issues, including affordable housing and court decisions state government must follow. On the subject of small municipalities under pressure from the state to share services or even merge with larger neighbors,  the commissioner noted that the subject of state aid on a per capita basis was a "good issue." As commissioner,  Doria oversees the Divisions of Local Government Services, Codes & Standards, Community Resources, Housing and Fire Safety, as well as the Division on Women, the Office of Smart Growth and the Center for Hispanic Policy, Research & Development.
