A. Mayor Green recognizes the impact the municipal budget has on our community’s property taxes, we continue to work hard to keep municipal property taxes flat, and he continues to exercise sound financial discipline to have 3 consecutive years of no municipal tax increases. Our goal is to provide the most services to our community while keeping an eye on the budget. B. Using grants helps Pine Hill stay on budget-one success from grants are the upgrades at all the parks and ballfields in town. Our ball fields are coveted by many sports organizations; our committee meets regularly making sure all in town sports programs have access to our fields. C. Sound budgeting, increase in services and stable taxes make Pine Hill attractive.
Property Taxes-we need to continue the momentum of the last several years by analyzing every dollar spent and measure it against the needs of the community. Apply for grants that help us meet those needs and add to the 1.8 million already awarded in recent years. We continue to showcase our hometown charm with national night out, fireworks and our Christmas parade.
We continue to consider all options that reduce the cost to our borough; we have shared services with the following, the tax assessor, cleaning services, automobile maintenance and repair. We also participate in the state, county and other municipality purchasing agreements that give us the best pricing on supplies.
Economic Development committee has met with many prospective businesses in our community. Recent successes include a new business park on Cross keys Road, a Dollar General, a self-storage facility has been approved along with some age restricted single family housing. Our economic development committee sponsored a summer concert with the country music group Cotton Mouth in another effort to showcase Pine Hill.

As a Nurse Practitioner I am deeply concerned with the effect the Opioid Crisis has on our residents. Deploying of Narcan is simply a stop gap. Under the leadership of Mayor Green , every time Narcan is deployed the individual receives information on services available to get drug or alcohol treatment by mail and in person. Individuals are given another chance at a cure.

We have partnered with the Volunteers of America, the Police and local Churches to help link individuals in need of services. This includes Homeless, Mentally Ill, addicted, hungry ,uninsured. We help these residents get services available to them. -Free

Our entire Police Department attends De-escalation training in an effort to keep Officers and Residents safe.
The the Opioid crisis and Mental Health services to our Pine Hill Families. If our prevention efforts are not successful, offenders end up in Municipal Court usually for some petty crime. This is another opportunity to intervene in the individual’s life. Pine Hill is attempting to be a Pilot program, where the Judge can sentence offenders to mandatory treatment for whatever their particular addiction or Mental Health disorder may be. The coordinator will be in the Court room to make the referrals.

There is a School Resource Police Officer, with special training to deal with students and families. We work together with the School District to provide referrals to many agencies early to promote well being of our Children.
We have for many years shared services with other Municipalities as well as other government entities in the Borough of Pine Hill. An example is we get our Fire Trucks serviced in Cherry Hill where they have mechanics, trained to work on the trucks. We share services with the Schools, Fire District and MUA when one of us needs a piece of specialized equipment. Rather than all of us buying the same expensive item, we share, saving taxpayer money! I would be open to sharing additional services, but feel the State should offer grants to pick up the costs of studying and implementation.
We continue to seek out the right opportunities Mayor and Council continue to support development which is right sized and appropriate for Pine Hill. We don’t want something that in the end will not bring in tax dollars or use excessive services. So we remain deliberative in considering our options, while inviting proposals in out “Home for a Lifetime”
