No Better Time to Volunteer

Volunteerism can take many forms, several of which have been on display this past week in Livingston.

The Planning Board recently revealed the township’s Master Plan, a wide-ranging document that is updated roughly every ten years. The plan was created by a group of hard-working volunteers who dedicated countless hours to completing it. Without the tireless efforts of those volunteers, township manager Barry Lewis said Livingston would have had to pay a large sum to complete the job. He said had the plan not been handled “in-house,” it would have likely been a six-figure burden on the taxpayers.

Shredding Truck Catches Fire; Attendance Record Is Broken

The 1,065 cars that went through the Saturday, April 14 electronics recycling and paper shredding event is a new Livingston record. Scott Goldman, chairman of the Recycling and Reclamation Committee, said cars lined up along West Northfield Road even before the event started.

Committee volunteers, including Eric Baltuch, Joan Cohen, Judy Grebel, Walter Veit, and event chairwoman Karen Garber, helped direct traffic and assist residents.
