Ever notice those trucks parked in at the site of the former Foodtown supermarket on Route 70?

They are allowed to be there, township officials say, and residents are receiving a benefit from their presence.

“We have a mutual agreement with them,” said Mayor John Ducey, explaining that the trucks are from a tree cutting and removal service, and are being allowed to use the parking lot in exchange for trimming and removing some trees for the township. “They’re getting the parking spots and we’re getting some trees taken down.”

In response to a question from a resident at a recent meeting of the township council, Township Administrator Joanne Bergin said no formal study was conducted to calculate the value of the parking spaces versus the tree-cutting services, but so far the deal has been beneficial, especially since the lot continues to sit empty while its former redeveloper is suing the township.

“We supervise the work and we’re happy with the agreement,” said Bergin.

    Scarpelli and Nydam had a mutual agreement with a landscaping company also.
    Landscaper kept equipment at Townships Havens Homestead and Scarpelli and Nydam got kickbacks, favors and or bribe money. Democrat council womans son even got a job with the Landscaper.

    It is obvious from your remark that no matter how distant the tangential relationship is, you will try to use it to discredit the current Democratic administration. Any reasonable person sees right through your feeble attempts. I suspect you have no desire to “make america greater”

    • Bobbi

      Perfectly said.

    • Make America Greater

      And partisan democrat Scarpelli supporters like you kept saying ” move along ingrates, nothing to see here.”

      • Andy Pat

        Please do not put words in my mouth and I won’t put anything in yours!

      • Make America Greater

        I cant put any words in your mouth until Ducey pulls out of it.

      He’s brainwashed on that Breitbart filth. He just repeats crap from there.

        You are an ignorant ass… go read some Ebony and watch some BET. You are such a race baiter. It is because of people like you that President Trump became our President.

      • J W

        Not my President, just another traitor to me. Enjoy the impeachment little boy!

      • Spencer Trilby

        Republicans have the majority, you moron. He won’t be impeached. Now leave the commentary to humans. Go to Chicago and ape around there.

    Does Ducey have a township contract with the Tree service?
    Lets see it!

    • Spencer Trilby

      It’s okay because our great mayor holds Facebook chats.

    • Smokin

      Do they charge the township a fee for cutting the trees down ?? Then keep the trees to sell for firewood ???

  • Make America Greater

    What the town should do is lease the lot to a car dealer for storage of new car inventory.
    That seems to be a new business practice of Car Dealerships around the county.

    • Spencer Trilby

      As long as they are “in between Lakewood and Brick.” I’d love to see where that place is.

    Who allows the plumber to keep his fleet of vans stored at the Cherry Quay ballfields?

  • Surfrider

    The agreement should be out in the open in print? Have you seen the agreement, Dan?
    Good point about the ball fields as well, in Cherry Quay. Hopefully we are not paying extra insurance to be covered when the plumber slips on ice or drops a wrench on his foot! He has a nice long driveway, why is he parking there, should be off limits?
