One Pool or Two?

Does Livingston need two pools?

That was the question Mayor Shawn Klein posed to his fellow Council members at last week’s meeting, asking them to be prepared to discuss the matter at the following meeting, which will be held on February 8.

Klein’s argument is that the town can no longer financially support two pools; dwindling attendance over the past few years (prior to the pandemic) appears to prove that demand is not what it used to be.

If the town wants to, can it still afford to pay to maintain both pools? We are sure that it is possible to do so, but we are less certain that it would be the best use of Livingston’s money and resources.

Multiple People Charged With Motor Vehicle Theft

After conducting several investigations, the Livingston Police have charged multiple people in relation to auto thefts committed over the last few months.

On June 10, 2020, a MercedesBenz was stolen from a Ross Road home. The Mercedes was later recovered in Elizabeth and processed by Detective Michael Spano.

Fingerprint evidence led to the identification of a suspect, and cell phone records then placed the suspect at the scene when the vehicle was stolen. Almuta Thomas, 27, of Newark was charged with theft of a motor vehicle. He was already in the Essex County jail when served with his complaint.

Article Image Alt Text

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) has put out a request for those residents who have been participating in its “Personal Shopping/Shipping for the Homeless” initiative to include shopping for infant items.
“I’m asking generous Livingston neighbors to ‘Personal Shop’ for the babies,” said Jeff Friedman, LPI founder and director. “Although we don’t generally think of them when we picture homeless people, there are many, many babies and children living below the poverty line.”
On behalf of LPI’s Newark distribution partners, the Bessie Green Community (BGC), Newark Emergency Services for Families, (NESF) and the Willing Heart Community Care Center (WHCCC), Friedman is specifically requesting diapers and baby wipes.

Police Department Announces New Vehicle Design for Fleet

Police Department Announces New Vehicle Design for Fleet

The Livingston Police Department is about to get a little more visible. Police Chief Gary Marshuetz has announced a newly designed police vehicle in 2021. Livingston Police cars, which have recently been a mixture of yellow, blue, and black, are now slowly transitioning into a more “vintage” black and white. “Even though our current design is unique, ultimately a police car should look like a police car,” stated Chief Marshuetz.

The new design will feature bold white doors with sleek block lettering that emblazons “Police” across the front and rear doors of each car. A subdued Livingston Police patch will also be prominently displayed close to the hood. Perhaps the biggest change, which has much more intent than just style, is the addition of a large graphic that reads, “Township of Livingston” under the “Police” lettering. On the previous design, “Livingston” was significantly less featured.

Council Discusses Permitting Marijuana Business in Town

With the legalization of cannabis in New Jersey imminent — Governor Phil Murphy is expected to sign a bill any day — township attorney Jarrid Kantor briefed the Township Council on the steps members would need to take to control what will be permitted in town.

There are six classes of ways to get involved in the marijuana business: cultivators, manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, and licensers. If the town does nothing, then all would be allowed to operate in Livingston. Once a class is permitted, it must be allowed for five years. Classes that are not allowed, however, can be permitted by the Council at a later date, should the governing body decide to do so. The only class that cannot be banned is distributors, as they cannot be stopped from driving through a town.
