Two Furloughed Police Officers Recalled From Layoff. 

Township Manager Bill McCauley recently announced that the Township has recalled the last two furloughed police officers from layoff effective November 5, 2014. “I am very pleased to announce that we have recalled two police officers from the original reduction in the work force in 2012”, he said. McCauley lamented the need for the layoffs and cautioned that the Township still had miles to go to get out of the financial woods, but was pleased that the ship was headed in the right direction. “We still have $81 million in unfunded liabilities and horrible inherited contracts, but for the first time in the history of Bristol Township, we are taking our medicine and making good, courageous, long-term decisions for the benefit of all taxpayers and not just a few,” said McCauley.
