Philly Snowfall Predictions for Winter 2022-2023

AccuWeather Global Weather Center – October 5, 2022 – From the abundance of acorns in the fall to the bushiness of squirrel tails, there are many fanciful forecasting techniques have been used over the years as a means to glean a glimpse of what the weather will be like in the upcoming winter. AccuWeather's approach to concocting the winter forecast, one of its most highly-anticipated seasonal outlooks, is a bit different: The process involves a team of veteran long-range forecasters analyzing computer models, looking at how previous winters have played out and using their own personal experience to determine if it's going to be a snowy winter, if and when the polar vortex will unleash Arctic air across North America and whether it will be a good season for skiers. This winter is indeed looking like a snowy one across most of the northern tier of the contiguous United States,... Read more →

The purpose of the grant is to study the feasibility of combining the Fire and Emergency Medical Services of Haddonfield, Haddon Heights and Barrington. It is surprising that Haddonfield would want/need to decrease their property taxes. After all, Haddonfield is rich, isn't it? Well, the last year for which tax rates are available is 2019. At that time the average property tax rate for Haddonfield (which is 37th highest dollar amount of the 565 municipalities in New Jersey) is 3.125% which amounts to $16,121 a year. Haddon Heights' rate was 3.330% and Barrington was the highest rate of the three of at 4.400%. As an aside, Gloucester City's tax rate that year was 4.498%. When looking at property taxes, remember that the majority of... Read more →

William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNewsnet GLOUCESTER CITY and BELLMAWR AMONG 57 VIOLATING LAW--The NJ Office of the State Comptroller released a report last week regarding some municipalities' illegal use of sick leave. The Comptroller’s report stated that 95% of the 60 towns it surveyed were not following laws limiting sick leave payments. According to NJ1015.com the Comptroller said these communities were wasting taxpayer funds which add to higher property tax bills. Only three of those 60 complied with the 2007/2010 law. Many towns allow public workers to convert unused sick days into yearly bonuses. Some promised to make extensive payments years down the road, which is prohibited and can potentially increase a worker’s pay by hundreds of thousands of dollars. “The reform that was initiated in 2007 and expanded upon in 2010 appears, at least based on the 60 municipalities we looked at, to have failed more than succeeded,”...
