Asphalt Hot Patcher Provides Better Pothole Repairs

Article Image Alt Text

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."

We're Thinking Spring!

After a winter of biting cold and more than 53 inches of snow, everyone is ready for spring, with its moderating temperatures and its blossoms awakening from a frigid winter's rest. While the offi cial start of spring is still just about a weekaway, spring events are beginning to sprout up. Think spring cleaning. Take advantage of the township's fi rst electronics recycling and paper shredding event of 2015, which is scheduled for Sunday, March 22, at the Hillside Avenue community center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The township’s goal in sponsoring recycling events as part of the Livingston Living Green Initiative is to ensure that recyclable items do not go into the waste stream. This benefi ts the community by reducing the total weight of solid waste collection going to the incinerator or landfi ll. In turn, this reduces the total spent on garbage disposal fees, and it can increase the amount the township receives in grant dollars for recycling.
