EAST WINDSOR TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)–Mayor Janice S. Mironov announced that, despite the unprecedented challenges and cost increases of the past few years, the adopted 2023 East Windsor Municipal Budget of $23,426,238 again contains NO TAX INCREASE. Thus, the East Windsor municipal tax rate component has not increased for eleven consecutive years, remaining at the rate of 43 cents per $100 of assessed valuation for the years 2013 through 2023. For the current average residential assessment of $259,455, the 2023 municipal tax is $1,123.
Although overall spending in 2023 has increased by almost $1 million over 2022, use of American Rescue Plan funds and sound Township fiscal planning enabling greater use of miscellaneous revenue accounts and fund balance, allow the 2023 budget to result in NO tax increase for East Windsor residents with NO reductions in services or employees. There were numerous challenges in the 2023 budget due to significant gaps in budged anticipated municipal revenues for several categories especially municipal court and major expenditure increases in the 2023 municipal budget for the dramatic state-imposed 22% hike in the State Health Benefits Plan, state pension payment costs, as well as significant increases in salaries and wages, contract increases and general inflationary costs factors.
Mayor Mironov stated, “This no tax increase budget is a fiscally conservative budget document which well serves our community and retains all employee positions and all existing service levels. East Windsor has worked hard to keep our spending levels tight and continually seek out additional efficiencies, cooperative purchasing avenues and service sharing opportunities, and has maintained a very low debt level. This positive budget no tax increase outcome results from the pro-active efforts of the Township to carefully plan and to closely monitor expenditures and revenues throughout the year and into future years.”
The Township tax base has increased by over $1.4 million for 2023, as East Windsor continues to be highly pro-active and successful in seeking to expand business opportunities and attract new commercial rateables. New business projects in 2022 and 2023 include Jersey Mike’s and Cinnaholic in Town Center Plaza, Primrose School of East Windsor on Dutch Neck Road in the former Rite-Aid building, Jim Carl’s Auto Body Repair on Route 130 North, AJ Madison’s newly constructed building, relocation of Vectornate USA’s global headquarters to Old Trenton Road, and the major modern Innovation Park complex.

Author Cameran Sassman signing her book at Randy Now’s Man Cave in Hightstown on June 24, 2023, at 2:00 p.m.
June 21, 2023
HIGHTSTOWN, NJ (MERCER)–A graduate of Steinert High School (Class of 1990), Sassman grew up in Hamilton Square.
She recently published a book about her life as a teenager growing up during the 80s in central suburban NJ and framing the story around the punk rock/alternative music shows that she went to while in high school. The book, In Between Shows, The A Sides, is semi-autobiographical, captures her love of the music scene as well many adventures and misadventures in love and friendship.
“My book also pays loving homage to my hometown and beloved Garden State” says Sassman. “I included so many references to past and present-day New Jersey icons from Little King Deli, Rock Dreams Records, Golden Dawn Diner, Mastori’s Diner, Vito’s Pizza, Thomas Sweet Ice Cream, The Princeton Record Exchange, Princeton Marketfair, Italian Peoples Bakery to the Seaside Boardwalk and Island Beach State Park and most importantly the iconic City Gardens in Trenton.
My book is not only a love letter to the people in my life from those formative teenage years, but a love letter to my hometown and the place that shaped the person that I have become.” Soul food for people of a certain age, In Between Shows, The A Sides will speak to anyone touched deeply by the intoxicating, enchanting world we enter when the venue doors swing open. “Even though my experiences are from a different time, I truly believe my story is timeless and universal” says Sassman. “Being a teenager at any point in time is not for the faint of heart. It wasn’t easy to go back and relive some of the moments I wrote about, but I hope that sharing my story may help some people feel less alone.” In a sweaty rock club, we shed the trappings of workaday life. There are no cliques, no politics. Just a sea of humanity, joined together by shared euphoria.
