Vernon VFW May Move to Neighboring Town if Sewer Fees Increase

Last week the Vernon VFW's lawsuit against Vernon Township's Municipal Utilities Authority was dismissed and now the former may sell their building and move to another town. 

The dispute started in 2013 and culminated two years ago when the town told the post they would be increasing their sewer fee because estimates didn't account for a bar in the VFW hall. The judge who dismissed the lawsuit said VTMUA has the authority to adjust fees when necessary but didn't mention how they may double what the VFW is being charged.

According to the New Jersey Herald, an officer with the VFW suggested that it may be time to look for another building. Bob Constantine asked why they should stay in Vernon if they're spending all their money on sewer fees instead of donating it to causes.
