Mayor Expresses Displeasure Over Turnpike Authority Meeting Date Change
He said the change is unfair to the residents of Galloway Township.
Mayor Don Purdy said on Monday that earlier this year he had to beg the New Jersey Turnpike Authority to schedule a meeting regarding proposed changes that could affect Parkway rest stop access in Galloway Township, so when that meeting's date was changed two days before it was scheduled, he was disappointed.
"I think its unfair to the residents of Galloway Township," he said, adding that the meeting was designated as a special meeting of the council in order to allow for more than three members of the council to be present.
Purdy said that on the new proposed date, Monday, Aug. 27, he will be out of town.
"If they wanted to change the time and date they should have done it a lot sooner than now," he said. "A lot of residents were looking forward to it and made plans to be there."
The meeting was also moved from the Galloway Township Municipal Building to the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey's Trustees Room in the Campus Center.
