Asphalt Hot Patcher Provides Better Pothole Repairs

The township’s snow total for 2014-15 was not quite up to the previous year’s numbers – with 52.5 inches falling this winter versus last year's snowfall of 65 inches. However, winter still managed to wreak havoc with some of our roadways. "The township can’t repave every street in town," said Judith Heller, Livingston's communications coordinator. "However, members of the Department of Public Works (DPW) are doing their best, as the weather allows, filling in the potholes that seem to be everywhere. As the temperatures creep up and roads can dry, residents will see them on our roadways more often with the township’s Asphalt Hot Patcher."

Livingston Coat Drive Winds Down; Total Collected Should Top 2,100

The Livingston Coat Drive is now winding down for the season, announced founder Jeff Friedman of Livingston. Friedman, known popularly as "The Coat Guy," explained, "Final donations are still arriving at the West Essex Tribune office and through private pick-up. This means there will be one more delivery prior to the conclusion of an ever-growing effort to provide warmth to the poor, homeless and disenfranchised."
Along with Coat Drive "Dream Team" volunteer Candi Samansky of Livingston, Friedman delivered 64 warm coats and assorted accessories to the North Reformed Church on Broad Street in Newark. "I've learned that North Reformed Church is a major provider of food and clothing to the poor in homeless in downtown Newark," noted Friedman. "So I return there often, because they always need and appreciate new 'stock.' "
