EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — The Township Committee passed an ordinance at its Feb. 21 meeting authorizing a tax abatement agreement between the township and Atlantic Medical Imaging LLC.

The new medical imaging center at Spruce Avenue and the Black Horse Pike opened Jan. 15.

It’s the standard five-year tax-abatement program, township Administrator Peter J. Miller said when the ordinance was introduced Jan. 17. The program entices commercial developers to build in the township. The first year, they pay none of the improvement value in property taxes, but the taxes increase by 20 percent of that value each year, with 100 percent due in the sixth year.

In other business, two ordinances were introduced: One would lower the speed limit on Cates Road from Atlas Lane Road to West Jersey Avenue from 50 mph to 25 mph. The other would establish a police construction detail overtime rate at $90.

“For anyone inquiring to the cost as for that type of work, we now have that set by ordinance in the township code,” Miller said, adding the current rate is $82.50.
