Recently, WD residents received a bulk mailing flyer regarding the upcoming fun day this month. How much did this cost in using the USPS rather than utilizing email addresses, social media?
Take in account that WD has six zip codes for the approx. 9000 homes. (2010 Census). Bulk mailing, if delivered to the 6 zip codes, eventually over 20,000 non-West Deptford addresses would receive this mailing.
Note, there may be a savings of using bulk mailing rather than mailing to each WD address. But does this administration look at overall cost savings, using the cheaper internet rather than USPS?
The savings of mailings could be appropriated to offset the total cost of Fun Day, which is included in your taxes.

In 2012, the Republican controlled government eliminated the mailing of the Township calendar, saving over $12,000 per year.
