Based on the results of the traffic projections and impact analysis performed for each of the alternatives studied, construction of the new ramps to the missing movements at Interchange 40 is not considered critical."

Health Department Complaints? Does the Township Know About Them and What are Those Complaints?

Ever wonder what happens to those Municipal complaints that are filed with the Atlantic County Health Department? Does the Township know about those complaints?

In a recent interview with a local Business owner in Galloway Township, we were asked, "doesn't the Township know about complaints made to the Health Department?"  Our immediate response was "of course they know." The Atlantic County Health Department submits a report monthly to each municipality of any complaints filed with their agency. 

To ascertain this request by the Business owner, who requested to remain anonymous, we submitted an Open Public Records Request to Galloway Township Clerk TC Kay for these records. We immediately received a response from Kay stating, "Galloway Township's Custodian of Record believes that you have submitted this OPRA request to the wrong agency. It would perhaps be more productive if you contacted the Atlantic County Health Department to ascertain these documents."
