Hey Marc how did you determine that Mt. Tabor is a co-op?

The fee covers the lease of the land for Mt. Tabor as it is not fee simple ownership there. Mt Tabot used to be a religious municpality a "camp" as it were. In 1979 this was ruled unconstitutional because of seperation of Church and State. So, as a reult it resorted to being merged with Parsippany and an association was created with land lease fees. It is actual a very unique and rare situation. This link will take you to some great information on the history of Mt. Tabor and how this present day situation came to be. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Tabor,_New_Jersey

Hope that helps!

Hi John,

Mt. Tabor is a co-op. Hence the fees.
