Finally, Livingston’s local philanthropic organization, Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. That’s why we can finally request donations from those who want to assist in “providing for the poor, homeless, and disenfranchised.” And that’s why our recently announced fundraising initiative is moving forward in full gear.

New Police Chief Ready for the Role

On Tuesday, September 4, Livingston Police Department’s acting Chief Gary Marshuetz will be sworn in as the township’s newest chief. The appointment is somewhat ceremonial, as he will technically drop the “acting” in his title on September 1 and he has been assuming the duties of chief for several months. Nonetheless, it is the culmination of nearly three decades of service in Livingston’s police force.

Prior to the ceremony, Marshuetz sat down with the Tribune to reflect on his nearly 30 years on the job and what he hopes to accomplish moving forward.
