Happy Monday Campers,
The average New Jersey property tax bill is at an all-time high. A federal excessive force trial against three Atlantic City police officers is entering its third week. And Atlantic City H.S. basketball lost the CAL Championship game Saturday to Wildwood Catholic in OT.
The valuable NJ Spotlight reports property taxes went up $141 last year, a figure would likely have been higher if it weren’t for the Atlantic City PILOT deal.

In 2010, it was $20.4 billion. Those are billions with Bs.
