A Camp Bus Is a School Bus

With the end of the school year here, we would like to remind our readers about an important safety issue – camp bus transportation.

It is a common scenario in the summer:Abig yellow school bus slows and its yellow lights come on to indicate its imminent stop. Then, the red lights come on and the young passengers begin to disembark. But the driver immediately behind the school bus – possibly thinking that school is out for the summer vacation and this bus must be some sort of imposter – zips past the bus on the right side, narrowly missing the startled children, who jump out of the way just in time.

Chief Marshuetz Details First Year On the Job to Council; Plastics Committee, “Do Not Knock” List Also Discussed

During the Monday, June 17, Township Council conference meeting, Livingston Police Chief Gary Marshuetz addressed the Council members, providing an update on his first year in the position.

Chief Marshuetz took on the role in an acting capacity in summer 2018 before being officially sworn in as the department leader last September. He said his knowledge of the department and those preliminary months on the job allowed him to “hit the ground running” when he was formally named Chief of Police.

Among the issues he sought to address in his first few months were improving morale, giving the department a “small town feel,” projecting compassion, and being problem solving oriented. Much of this, particularly the morale, he said was improved by placing an added focus on the patrol division. The largest division in the department, Chief Marshuetz restructured certain positions to put four more officers on patrol without adding to LPD’s overall staff of 71 officers.
