Not What It Seems

Things are not always what they seem. When one learns that a township is fighting to block "affordable housing," many questions may arise. Is it an attempt to be exclusive? Is the town trying to shut out certain socio-economic groups? Livingston, in fact, has been working diligently over the years to keep the number of multi-family units in the township down for a variety of reasons that are beneficial to residents. These include, but are not limited to, preventing strained resources/infrastructure and threats to open space.

LCI Teaches How Livingston Runs

Livingston residents may take it for granted that their toilets will flush and their garbage will be collected. They may assume that their leaves will get picked up and their library will be filled with books, media and program offerings. But none of these things happen automatically. Some people are not aware that the mayor is elected annually from among the five Township Council members and that Livingston's Council/manager form of government is similar to a business where a Board of Directors (the Township Council) oversees a Chief Operating Officer (the township manager), who manages the day-today operations.
