Bond Referendum Town Hall Wednesday

October 3, 2023 by News Staff

A second meeting happens Wednesday at Page Middle School to discuss the Gloucester bond referendum. The bond referendum asks voters whether they will vote yes or no to authorize the board of supervisors to obtain $39.5 million in capital improvement bonds—essentially take out a loan—to fund long-standing capital projects to improve fire and rescue safety, public schools and parks. According to Gloucester County information, up to 2 cents more on real estate taxes could be needed to pay for these projects. A 2-cent increase would cost the owner of a $300,000 home about $5 per month, or $60 a year. The Wednesday Town Hall begins at 7pm.
