Ouch! Property Tax Bite Hurts More in Some Towns, but not for Reasons Most Often Cited
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – With New Jersey’s property taxes frequently cited as among the highest in the nation, their unequal burden on the state’s municipalities and residents is a topic of continual debate at town meetings and in the media.
But new research issued by Rutgers’ Center for Government Services (CGS) finds that two of the most oft-cited causes – high levels of municipal and school spending – are rarely responsible for the excessive property tax burdens in the state’s most burdened municipalities.
Rather, says the researcher, Dr. Ernest Reock Jr., it’s much more complicated than that.
The Center for Government Services (CGS) has been providing timely and relevant training for New Jersey state and local officials for over 60 years. This summer CGS is offering extended learning opportunities and mainstay programs for state and municipal employees.
New this summer is the Mini-Conference for Assessors. This two-day event is offered three times during the month of June in New Brunswick and Hammonton. Topics include Commissioners Short Course, Retaining and Recapturing Value, and Compliance Plans, to name a few.
In a new partnership to be formalized May 30, Rutgers University and Mercer County Community College (MCCC) will expand opportunities for associate degree holders in the Mercer County area to earn Rutgers degrees on MCCC’s West Windsor campus.
Beginning in fall 2013, Rutgers’ newest off-campus degree-completion program will offer three bachelor’s degree programs at MCCC: labor and employment relations, RN to BS in nursing, and political science.
The two institutions will sign a memorandum of understanding formalizing their partnership in a ceremony at MCCC at 1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor, at 10 a.m., Thursday, May 30. Rutgers Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Richard L. Edwards and MCCC President Patricia C. Donohue will sign the document, officially commencing the partnership.
Educators can take advantage of Rutgers’ highly-rated Summer Advanced Placement Institute offered on the New Brunswick Campus in three sessions running from July 8 through August 15. The program, offered in partnership with the College Board, is open to beginning and experienced AP teachers.
The sixth annual summer program includes 12, week-long intensive seminars that focus on specific pedagogical issues in the AP classroom. Each program fulfills 30 hours of professional development requirements for New Jersey teachers. Educators also may complete a seminar for three nondegree graduate credits through the Rutgers-New Brunswick Summer Session.
This year, the Summer AP Institute has added courses in AP chemistry and calculus. The program also will address the new exams being introduced in chemistry and Spanish language and culture, which will be administered in 2014. This will be the first opportunity for educators to learn about changes to the exams.
