Michelle LaStarza stated currently the dog licenses are provided by MGL at a cost of $260 per hundred. Newton Trophy would be willing to make the licenses for $6 per tag. The issue with the dog licenses is obviously the cost for the number of tags needed in the township. The CFO will check with the auditors to verify any potential issues that may occur in the future before switching to Newton Trophy.
There being no further comment and no further business to discuss, Committeewoman Wycalek made a motion to adjourn seconded by Committeeman Heigis. The meeting was adjourned at 7:22 p.m.
