Robbinsville police to receive budget boost

Robbinsville council will increase spending in its police department by about $15,000 after a council meeting last night.
The budget, which will be formally introduced at next week’s meeting, has been discussed at the last two council meetings. Martin Masseroni, the township’s police chief, asked for a $10,000 increase in overtime and $5,000 increase for uniforms after raising concerns at the meeting.
Masseroni said the department could go over its overtime amount if “God forbid” the town experience another storm or hurricane without federal reimbursement, which the town will receive for Superstorm Sandy.
“I’m just a little concerned that we may have cut it a little too much,” he said.
Masseroni said the town might also hire three officers in the next year and the outlay for new equipment had been halved.
“If we do hire a few people this year, outfitting them the first time is not in the budget,” he said.
