“I feel the revenue is adequate for the services we are providing,” James Naples, township administrator  said in response to a question from Bridgewater council member Filipe Pedroso.

“The service has gone off seamlessly,” Naples added. “I haven’t heard any complaints on either side. This is an excellent opportunity for us where we can provide a service and take in additional revenue.”
