MIDDLETOWN, NJ - Last night the Middletown Township Committee voted unanimously to terminate the township’s contract with Realty Data Systems effective immediately.  Middletown Township plans to manage the state-mandated tax assessment and inspections program internally.

“We’ve seen the program in operation for a year now. With all the questions that have been raised, we feel there would be greater accountability and a cost savings if we took the service in-house,” said Mayor Stephanie Murray.  “We also believe we can provide a more comprehensive service to our residents.”
