Pay Attention: Open Space Funds Diversion

The Hillsborough Township Committee is considering Ordinance 2013-17:
“SHALL THE TOWNSHIP COMMITTEE OF THE TOWNSHIP OF HILLSBOROUGH MODIFY AND EXPAND THE USES AND PURPOSES OF THE OPEN SPACE TRUST FUND TO ALLOW FOR NOT MORE THAN 20% OF THE OPEN SPACE TRUST FUND TAX COLLECTED IN ANY ONE YEAR TO BE UTILIZED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND, OR IMPROVEMENT OF PARK AND RECREATION FACILITIES THAT ARE LOCATED ON PROPERTY WITHIN THE OPEN SPACE AND PARK INVENTORY FOR RECREATION, CONSERVATION AND GENERAL OPEN SPACE PURPOSES?”
It sounds pretty harmless, doesn't it?

It sounds like a good thing, doesn't it?
