    The Medford Township pro- posed purchase of the Park View Cemetery is nearing a final deci- sion.

    Two final meetings were held over the past week to present all the information to the public and to get its reaction on the matter. After concluding the meetings, the Medford Township Council is now in the process of sorting through residents’ feedback.

    “We (the council) think we’ve shown over the years that we lis- ten to what the residents say, but ultimately this is our decision,” Deputy Mayor Jeff Beenstock said.

    Beenstock and Mayor Chuck

    Watson have taken the lead on this project and felt they were doing the public a justice by put- ting together this presentation and fielding public comments.

    The town is looking to generate a new, recurring source of rev- enue.

    “Each year, the township must supplement the funds raised by taxes with other sources of rev- enue to balance the budget,”

    Beenstock said. The total projected revenue in

    2015 is $20.16 million. The project- ed amount to be raised by taxes is $12.22 million, leaving a differ- ence of $7.94 million. There are virtually no guaranteed sources of recurring revenue, according to Beenstock, so the goal of the cemetery purchase is to reduce dependence on one-time rev- enues.

    Beenstock said the Medford Cemetery Association ap- proached the township about pur- chasing the cemetery more than a year ago. The association is a non-profit organization formed in 2008 to manage the old OddFel- lows Cemetery in Medford Vil- lage. The organization opened the Park View Cemetery at Kirby’s

    Mill in 2013. “When I first looked into this, I

    thought this would never happen, but the more I looked into it, the stronger I felt,” Beenstock said.

    The Park View Cemetery con- sists of two locations, one in his- toric Medford Village and the other in the Kirby’s Mill location. The original purchase price will
