16 jobs to be cut when Princetons merge next year

    When Princeton Borough and Princeton Township merge in January, at least 16 municipal jobs will be cut.

    Based on recommendations by the Transition Task Force, borough and township officials decided on the cuts last night, agreeing to eliminate administrator, deputy clerk, equipment operator and several other positions, the Times of Trenton reports.

    A committee with members of both municipalities will weigh job skills and past performance to determine who will lose their jobs. Departing employees will get severance packages of up to 16 weeks of paychecks.
