On Tuesday, Feb. 24, Bill Dressel, Executive Director of the New Jersey League of Municipalities updated the mayors on issues confronting local governments. Economic conditions dominate those issues, he said. The recently enacted federal stimulus package includes some funding for municipal efforts such as water and sewer projects, Dressel noted, but most of the money will be filtered through state agencies. Meanwhile, Dressel urged support for the new Pension Payment Deferment bill now in the State Legislature. It would temporarily ease the burden of pension payments for already stressed local governments. Dressel also addressed affordable housing, his association’s objections to certain efforts by the state Council on Affordable Housing, and other developments on the affordable housing front.
