If You Love Your Pet, License It

This Sunday, January 31, is the deadline to get your dog or cat licensed for the year.

Licensing your dog is not just a good idea; it’s the law. The township requires that every dog, age seven months and older, be licensed and immunized against rabies. Licensing also enables dog owners to get a pass to the Livingston Dog Park. Those who do not obtain current licenses are subject to fines and possible court appearances.

Mall Committee

It is no secret that the Livingston Mall has seen better days. Just prior to the pandemic, Sears announced that it would be closing; Lord and Taylor closed more recently. Malls in general have been hurt in the past decade by a growing increase in online shopping. Something needed to be done to support Livingston’s single largest taxpayer, which is why we were thrilled to hear, late last year, that a committee had been formed to discuss what could be done to support the mall.

Last week, the 16-person committee announced the fruits of its initial work, recommending that the Township Council designate the mall district as an area in need of redevelopment. This is all preliminary, with many more steps to take, but we think this is a fantastic idea.

Meeting Changes

A few weeks ago, we praised Livingston’s Board of Education for changing its meeting dates later this year, to avoid conflict with the Township Council meetings. Starting in the new academic year, the Board planned to hold its meetings on Thursdays. This was a great move for the members of the community, we said at the time.

What we did not say, however, was that Thursdays were not the best day for us at the Tribune. Since that is the day our weekly paper is delivered, it would mean that news from the Board meetings would be one week old by the time they reached the paper. It was not an ideal situation, but one we planned to make the best of, in one way or another.
