Update: Mt. Olive Township, New Jersey, has voted to approve the TNR ordinance.
Proponents worked for months to try to get the Township to consider and approve the ordinance. The Township did so only after TNR supporters undertook a ballot initiative which would mean voters could approve a TNR ordinance regardless of whether town officials agreed.
