Re: Report of the League Resolution Committee, 17 Resolutions Approved

Dear Mayor:

On Thursday, November 21, seventeen resolutions, articulating new legislative and policy priorities for the League of Municipalities, were adopted at the Annual Business meeting held to conclude the League’s 98th Annual Conference.  In addition, League Resolution 2009-03, which calls for the ability of municipalities to opt-out of Civil Service, was reaffirmed. 

On Tuesday, November 19, the League Resolutions Committee screened the resolutions and made its recommendations.  The Committee chaired by newly elected League President Suzanne Walters, Mayor of Stone Harbor Borough, screened eighteen resolutions, recommending seventeen and holding one at the request of the sponsors.

Below is a summary of the resolutions, followed by the full text of each.  The full text of each is also available on the League’s website located at http://www.njslom.org/resolutions/2013-League-Resolutions.pdf

League staff will be working with the sponsors of the resolutions to line up legislative sponsors and taking the necessary steps to see to the implementation of these resolutions.  Please contact Mike Cerra at mcerra@njslom.com or 609-695-3481 x120 if you need any additional information.

Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
