Livingston Philanthropies Needs Volunteers

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) is in dire need of volunteers who own an SUV or larger vehicle, announced founder and director Jeff Friedman. “Livingston residents have been so generous with their donations this year that we almost can’t keep up,” he said. “It’s a good problem to have, but it is a problem. We are really in need of volunteers to pick up coats and toiletries from our collection points – primarily the West Essex Tribune, next to ShopRite. It’s not a big time commitment, but we do need someone with a big vehicle, like an SUV or a pick-up truck, that can fit all these donations. We need help collecting them, and also with taking them to our distribution partners.”
To help motivate potential volunteers, Friedman said, “I researched why people volunteer and found meaningful reasons in an online article by Positive Force Consulting. Here are some:
“Volunteering allows the chance to expand your horizons and celebrate other cultures.

Council Discusses Property Revaluation

At the end of the Monday, October 29, Township Council regular meeting, residents Bob Hunter and Walter LeVine both asked questions about a letter that was sent last week to Livingston property owners. The letter announced that township properties will be inspected over the next few months, the first step in the revaluation process. Livingston must revalue all real estate for the 2020 tax year, according to the Essex County Board of Taxation. The last revaluation took place in 2007.

The revaluation process is revenue neutral; if the assessed value of the property increases in the revaluation, the tax rate would drop as a result. The total amount for tax allowed to be raised annually remains capped at two percent, as always.
