“This settlement has been one of my administration’s priorities since Atlantic City’s fiscal crisis forced us to assume control of operations there in November with a plan to stabilize property taxes and return the city to a sound financial footing. The city administration, despite all the time and opportunity given to them failed to accomplish this goal as they have with so many others. This agreement saves $30 million more for taxpayers than what Atlantic City had anticipated settling for under its five-year plan,” said Christie.

The governor characterized the settlement as a step in bringing fiscal health back to the Jersey Shore town.
