COURT HOUSE – Middle Township Committee adopted an ordinance during its March 18 meeting that no longer requires the administrator to live in the township.
“This is through the process of hiring a new Administrator and the applications we received,” said Deputy Mayor Timothy Donohue. “We thought it was in the best interest of the township that we do away with the residency requirement for our Administrator. We certainly don’t want an administrator that lives hours away, but we felt strongly that the best, most qualified candidate was Connie Mahon.”
The township recently hired Mahon, a resident of Cape May Point.
“We don’t see any downside in waiving the residency requirement,” added Donohue.
The ordinance also contains language that will allow the administrator’s appointment to be determined by resolution, within the maximum term permissible by law.
