Mayor Fried Announces Organizational Changes
Joy Tozzi named BA, Tim McGough to focus on
Community and Economic Development
ROBBINSVILLE, NJ – Robbinsville Township Mayor David Fried announced today that Assistant Business Administrator Joy Tozzi has been appointed Business Administrator, and Tim McGough has been named Director of Community Development and Director of Economic Development.
The changes are effective immediately.
Mrs. Tozzi’s expertise in administration, legal and finance – including serving as the Township negotiator during successful contract negotiations with the Fire and Teamsters unions, along with her ongoing discussions with Police representatives – helped drive the appointment.
“We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Joy Tozzi’s talent and experience working for Robbinsville Township,’’ Mayor Fried said. “Her versatility in a multitude of areas allows this to be a very natural progression for our administration.’’
The burgeoning economic growth in the Township following a two-year lull allowed Mayor Fried to assign Mr. McGough’s considerable strengths to current projects such as the development of Kushner Park, new building construction in the vibrant warehouse district, finding a permanent location for the new municipal building, the construction of a new court building to replace the current trailer, taking the lead on challenging the so-called “Conversion Law,’’ a new hotel in the area of West Manor Way, construction of a community park and field house, transforming the six-acre Foxmoor site on Washington Boulevard into a park and the ongoing New Jersey Turnpike Widening Project.
Mr. McGough will remain the Township’s chief engineer.
“My goal is to be as efficient as possible,’’ Mayor Fried said. “Two years ago we made changes because development had slowed. Now things are moving in the right direction. Development is back and we felt this change was needed to maximize each of their individual strengths. This allows us to be more productive with the least amount of upheaval without adding staff, which makes for a leaner budget and helps keep taxes down. There are many great things happening in the Township and we are extremely comfortable with these changes in our organizational structure at this time.’’
