News Staff's picture

At the Monday, November 23, meeting of the Livingston Township Council, members discussed a nearly $2 million appropriation to cover COVID-19-related deficits, and again held open a mixed-use housing ordinance, among otherbusiness. The meeting was held virtually and may be seen on the Livingston Township, NJ Facebook page.

During the public comment portion of the meeting, resident Alyse Berger Heilpern asked the Council what could be done by the Council to curb the spread of COVID-19, particularly in regard to working with the school district.

Mayor Rudy Fernandez said the Council is in constant contact with the township health department, as well as Livingston Public Schools superintendent Matthew Block. He also said that there will soon be more signage encouraging safe practices around town, there are electronic signs outside of Town Hall and the Senior/Community Center sharing information, and superintendent Block plans to attend the December 21 Council meeting to discuss matters further. The Council and Board of Education also hope to schedule a “five on five” meeting by the end of the year.
