We last reported here in depth about this important issue on July 12, 2021 … regarding Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson’s proposal to consolidate all Municipal Courts into one consolidated Atlantic County Court system.

This Monday, August 2, 2021 at 6:30 p.m., the Hamilton Township Committee will vote whether or not to sign on to the Atlantic County consolidated court system.

With growth communities Egg Harbor Township and Galloway Township already officially on board, should Hamilton Township agree to join forces, Levinson’s plan will prove to be unstoppable.

Hamilton Township Mayor Charles Cain has meticulously and painstakingly studied the issue.

Cain had interim Township Administrator Peter Miller review every aspect of this proposal. Miller reported back that he was strongly in favor of consolidation.

Mayor Cain sent his own comprehensive work and the voluminous Atlantic County assumptions to an independent auditor for review.

It has now reached the self-evident phase. The plan is smart. It will substantially streamline operations. It will save the various municipalities significant dollars by each and every year.

By joining, Hamilton Township is projected to save substantial six figures per-year.

Cain has also negotiated other key elements of importance to Hamilton Township. No obstacles whatsoever remain at this time.

After completing all of his due diligence, we have also confirmed that Cain met with separately with Levinson and Atlantic County Counsel Jim Ferguson to review any remaining final issues and questions.

We are confidently forecasting that Hamilton Township will vote tonight to enter into the Atlantic County consolidated court, shared services agreement.

You can’t overstate how important this result is to Levinson. With Hamilton Township poised to join, other municipalities will follow along shortly.

Prior to the Atlantic County proposal, Hamilton Township was in serious negotiations with other Municipalities, who were poised to consolidate their court systems with Hamilton Township.

Mayor Cain is our regular guest every Monday morning for the 9:00 a.m. hour on the “Hurley in the Morning” program on WPG Talk Radio 95.5

We’ll be discussing the upcoming Committee vote with Mayor Cain this Monday, August 2, 2021 at 9:05 a.m.

We have also spent hours reviewing the Levinson Atlantic County Consolidated Court System proposal. I am staunchly in favor it.

Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson

Levinson has spent decades leading Atlantic County’s 23 municipalities to consider consolidating in prudent ways.

This will undoubtedly be Levinson’s biggest achievement in his pursuit of municipal consolidation and shared services.
