Former West Orange mayor John F. McKeon is heading a new effort by the New Jersey state Assembly to document spending that drives up local property taxes because it is mandated, but not funded, by the state.

“This is part of an overall effort to bring systemic change to a system that simply costs taxpayers too much money,” McKeon to NewJerseyNewsroom.com, our state news partner. “We can do better, and our goal will be to hear from mayors and anyone else who has an idea on what mandates can be eased or eliminated to the benefit of property taxpayers.”
