Reorganization Meeting

Each New Year in Livingston, town officials and members of the public gather at the Senior/Community Center for the annual township reorganization meeting.

There is a celebratory feeling to this meeting, where Council members are sworn in, along with a new mayor and deputy mayor for the upcoming year (for 2021, Shawn Klein and Ed Meinhardt, respectively), and dozens of residents are officially appointed to committees, having made pledges to volunteer their time for the betterment of their community.

The public meeting is typically attended by hundreds of Livingston residents, and the hope for a prosperous New Year in town is palpable in the room.

Stay Safe This Holiday Season

Livingston surpassed 1,000 total COVID-19 cases this week, and with the holiday season in full swing, there is no reason to expect things to slow down anytime soon. It is on all of us to be responsible this holiday season, no matter how difficult it may be to do so.

There are clearly individuals who believe social distancing guidelines should not apply to them and their families, that they should still be able to travel, host large celebrations, and go about their daily lives without wearing masks. If this does not change, we are in for a long and brutal winter.

Article Image Alt Text

Livingston Philanthropies Inc. (LPI) founder and director Jeff Friedman has put out a request to readers to participate in the Livingston-based charity’s “Personal Shopping and Shipping to the Homeless” initiative.
“On behalf of LPI and the other fine Livingston service organizations gracing our town, I am respectfully asking our ever-generous residents to consider keeping a portion of their holiday giving local this year,” Friedman said. “Keeping your giving local – within Essex County, for example – is worth serious consideration, especially this year during the ongoing pandemic. COVID-19 continues to be particularly punishing to those living out on the streets or in shelters just a few miles down the road from Livingston.”
