NJ League of Municipalities Legislative Committee

Mayor Danielson reached out to his contacts within the New Jersey State League of Municipalities, the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, and other parties and together they opposed the proposed legislation regarding the Motor Vehicle Surcharge to support State Police in rural communities. The proposed legislation was dropped.

In an effort to help the affected communities be heard on this matter, Mayor Danielson submitted a letter to the New Jersey Herald, The Star Ledger, and the Daily Record.

Fortunately, the State of New Jersey subsequently directed the continuation of State Police patrols in rural areas without charging municipalities served.
