Traffic Survey

In the last few issues of the Tribune, we have reported on several motor vehicle accidents in town. Several cars were totaled, and while some people walked away with bumps and bruises, one resident suffered fatal injuries after her vehicle collided with a bus. Like most busy towns, Livingston has some roadways that can be dangerous for motorists and pedestrians. But which streets are the worst offenders, the ones that drivers should be extra-vigilant while navigating?

Memorial Park

At the start of the Tuesday, May 22, Township Council conference meeting, about a dozen Livingston veterans addressed the Council members, asking them to refrain from hosting events at Memorial Park at the Oval, other than ones honoring veterans who did not return home from war.

There is a memorial area, displayed for all to see, at the entrance to the Oval, on the “island” between the driveways, with its plaques paying respect to the 29 Livingston residents who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Road Work

On Monday, the intersection of West Northfield Road and Hillside Avenue was closed between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. for milling and paving. The work was certainly essential – we need to maintain our roadways, specifically at major intersections – but it caused a traffic nightmare for many during the morning commute. Sure, road work is typically an inconvenience whenever it occurs, but why start at 7 a.m. on a Monday?

Lock Your Cars!

It is once again time to play that broken record and remind residents to LOCK YOUR CAR DOORS!

Week after week, year after year, we have reported about car break-ins on the front page of the Tribune. We have run out of new ways to state it at this point, but it still needs to be said, as the thefts are as prevalent as ever in town.

Graduation Time

College graduation announcements are starting to come in and the Tribune staff has received inquiries from parents about how they can share their good news with their neighbors.

While we believe it is our job to educate our readers as to official happenings in the municipality, the Tribune is also here to publicize family milestones such as births, deaths, weddings, religious celebrations and other important personal achievements. As a result, we are happy to publish the news of a graduation in your family – at no charge. Information should be submitted in writing by mail at P.O. Box 65, Livingston, NJ 07039; by fax at 973-992- 7015; or by e-mail at TribuneEditorial@Verizon.net.

School Security

Several dozen parents, residents, and school administrators attended a School Safety Forum at Heritage Middle School last week for a discussion that came nearly three months after the fatal shootings at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Some who spoke requested an armed official, likely a police officer, be permanently stationed at each school. Livingston Board of Education president Pamela Chirls said the Board has discussed having armed officers in schools, but has decided not to pursue that avenue at the moment.

Supporting Residents with Disabilities

Several worthwhile events held this past week helped showcase Livingston’s impressive array of services for people with disabilities.

Last Sunday, April 29, was the Abilities Expo at Livingston High School, a family-friendly event with a rich variety of resources, products, services, and technologies for people with special needs. Each year, it provides a unique opportunity for families of children and adults with disabilities to find resources, collaborate with professionals, and explore the supports available in and around the community.

Conference Meetings

Every so often, the Tribune hears comments from residents concerned about the transparency of Township Council meetings. A common refrain is that most matters discussed during the regular meetings appear settled long before they even begin, resulting in limited discussion and unanimous approval before the public.
