Recycle Those Bags

There is a plastic shopping bag that has been caught in a tree in the Tribune’s parking lot, flapping in the breeze, for several weeks. Even some very windy days have not been able to shake it loose as we wait for some kind – and very tall – soul to remove it. Another plastic shopping bag was similarly caught in some of the Tribune’s shrubbery recently. These are just a few of the many that have found their way to our property in the last few months.

A few readers have questioned placing a box ad in the top left corner of the front page, directly next to our West Essex Tribune logo, stating that it appeared like an endorsement from the Tribune for the advertisers.

Dinosaur Park Proposed at Riker Hill

At the Township Council conference meeting on Monday, October 15, Council members said Essex County executive Joseph DiVincenzo has started preliminary cleanup and surveying of Riker Hill Art Park. The work comes less than a week after DiVincenzo attended a meeting in Livingston to discuss residents’ ideas for renovating the park.

At the conference meeting, the Council discussed a county request to install a four-way stop at the intersection of the entrance to Riker Hill Art Park and Homestead Terrace. There are currently stop signs on the entrance road, but not Homestead, and the Council members questioned if adding signs would inconvenience homeowners on the roadway. They agreed to ask the county if emphasizing the existing stop signs with additional signage would be sufficient.
