Council May Amend Regulations to Ban Vape Shops

A retail vaping shop that has been planning to open a location on Mt. Pleasant Avenue in Livingston is facing an uphill battle after the Township Council introduced an amendment to its general zoning regulations at its June 18 regular meeting that would prohibit “vape shops” from operating in the township business districts.

The Council introduced the ordinance to amend uses to Article XI general zoning regulations for Livingston at Monday’s meeting. Specifically, the ordinance prohibits “any commercial establishment which has as its principal business the retail sale of or service of electronic smoking devices, liquid electronic smoking solutions, liquid electronic smoking solution containers or vapor products,” and “any commercial establishment engaged in the retail or wholesale sale of any drug paraphernalia as defined in Chapter 122 Drug Paraphernalia of the Code of the Township of Livingston.”

Firefighters Extinguish Multi-Car Fire; LFD Opens Annual Fund-Raising Campaign

Livingston volunteer firefighters, who responded to 19 calls this week, including a multi-car fire, have mailed their annual letters to solicit financial support from the community.

Multi-Car Fire

A general alarm was sounded Thursday afternoon, June 14, after primary electrical wires fell onto a line of parked cars and began arcing, causing the vehicles to ignite.

Firefighters responded at 1:42 p.m. to the medical office building at 201- 209 South Livingston Avenue, next door to the Livingston Department of Public Works Garage. High winds had uprooted a tree, and one of the tree’s branches knocked down two primary (13,600 volt) power lines onto four cars parked in a line. After a few minutes down, the wires arced blue-white and ignited, burning the four cars into metal hulks, and causing heat damage to a fifth car.

Township Couple Indicted For Stealing From Stroke Victim

A husband and wife from Livingston were indicted earlier this month after allegedly stealing more than $100,000 from a stroke victim in the woman’s care, according to an announcement from New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal and the Office of the Insurance Fraud Prosecutor.

“Elder abuse is a cruel and despicable crime targeting those unable to protect themselves,” Grewal said on the eve of World Elder Abuse Day, Friday, June 15. “World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is an opportunity for New Jersey to unite with communities around the world in denouncing the financial, physical, and emotional abuse or neglect of our vulnerable senior citizens, and to demonstrate our efforts to protect them from harm.”
