The refunds make the budget process "extremely difficult," he said. Township administrator James White said the budget process began in October, and at one point, officials had it flat over last year's budget. But, the total township …

In East Brunswick, the Township Council is controled by a Repubican majority, 3 to 2, that often has to work with Democrat Mayor David Stahl. “I think he hit most of the right notes.
