JEER—For three years if not longer the windows and siding on the Gloucester City Municipal building, Broadway, and Monmouth Street have been in need of paint and repair. Mayor and council are supposed to set the example for residents to follow. Instill in each one of us a sense of community pride. Is it too much to ask of the council to maintain this historic building? We don’t think so. Recently three municipal employees were seen laying commemorative bricks at Proprietor's Park; instead give them a brush and put them to work painting this property. The poor condition of the municipal building was made public by CNBNews in 2013 and again in 2014. Why the delay to repair it? What possible excuse could our city government have for allowing this structure to deteriorate?
