For the second straight meeting, the East Greenwich Township Committee voted Tuesday to delay voting on a measure to lay off five full-time police officers from the 20-member force, though it claimed to be inching closer to solving its budget impasse. The five-member committee said it would continue to negotiate with the police union and would hold a special budget meeting next week. The measure was tabled two weeks ago after Mayor Fred Grant recused himself from voting on the proposed layoff of part-time Officer Gerald Hall, who helped arrest him in July on allegations of speeding and driving while intoxicated.

Municipalities across New Jersey are grappling with dwindling support from the state and other dried-up sources of revenue. But the budget crisis in the small Gloucester County town has become distinct for the intensely personal turn it has taken. The spark was set by the controversial layoffs of a part-time police officer and a part-time civilian employee this month that critics said were surreptitiously engineered by the mayor.

Camden's plan to lay off all its uniformed police officers and replace them with a new, county-run force has received approval from the New Jersey Civil Service Commission, according to Mayor Dana L. Redd's office. The mayor also announced this afternoon that the layoff of more than 250 officers is now set for April 30. "We cannot sit back and allow our children and families to experience another 2012. We have an opportunity to improve public safety by bringing back community policing and adding more law enforcement officers to patrol our neighborhoods and business corridors," she said in a statement.
