A task force assembled to examine the viability of maintaining a non-emergency, outpatient clinic in Princeton once the University Medical Center at Princeton completes a new, $350 million facility in Plainsboro met last Wednesday at Township Hall. The task force, which is composed of hospital administrators, physicians, members of the Princeton Regional Health Commission, the Borough and Township mayors, as well as representatives of the John-Witherspoon neighborhood, Princeton Human Services, and Corner House, is expected to meet again, in a private session, after clinical data are gathered. Subsequent to those sessions, the task force is likely to take its findings public.
Citing "sound financial performance," Moody's and Standard & Poor's (S&P), the Wall Street bond rating agencies, announced Tuesday that the Township had received a AAA bond rating the highest bond rating a governmental entity can achieve, enabling a muncipality to borrow funds at a lower interest rate. "When we strike the municipal tax rate for the current year we make sure we have adequate funds available for future years financial obligations," said Mayor Phyllis Marchand. "This is a practice that the rating houses look favorably upon."
