Week Ahead: Council Closes Out 2011
Final council meeting of 2011 to be held Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.
The Livingston Township Council meets for their final public meeting for the 2011 calendar year this Tuesday night.
There are various items listed on the agenda before the council's reorganization meeting on Jan. 2, 2012.
Two ordinances are scheduled for final hearing.
The first deals with a bond issuance totaling $560,000 that will be used to finance the construction of the Mountain Ridge Booster Station, which will improve the township's water utility system.
The second ordinance up for final hearing pertains to new rules at the Livingston Skate Park. If approved, out-of-town riders will now be officially permitted to skate at the park provided that they register with the Senior, Youth and Leisure Services department for a one-time fee of $50.
Riders would affix their registration tag onto their helmet, which they would be required to wear at all times. The move comes after concerns about a number of the park's riders, some of whom are out-of-towners, not wearing their helmets.
With the township still lingering from the effects of an October snowstorm, which brought days-long power outages and extensive tree damage, the council will vote on authorizing an emergency contract with Alga Enterprises to aid in the removal of the existing tree debris.
Lastly, the council will memorialize a resolution regarding the transfer of ownership of the Livingston Town Center property, which they authorized during last week's conference meeting.
Tuesday's regular meeting gets underway at 7:30 p.m. in the town hall with a conference meeting following immediately after.
Other happenings this week...
- Residents are encouraged to stop by the Livingston Town Hall on Tuesday between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. to obtain a red ribbon to place on their vehicle to show their support for MADD's "Tie One On For Safety" initiative. The program is designed to raise awareness about the importance of safe driving by using a seatbelt and driving sober, especially during the holiday season. Members of the Livingston Police and Nursing departments will be in attendance to answer any questions.
- With the holiday season in full swing, now is the perfect time to visit the Camuso Holiday Lights Display at the Livingston Oval. The display is turned on every night at 6 p.m. Since its grand opening three weeks ago, the display has made front page news throughout the state and was recently featured on a Fox 5 news telecast.
- Livingston Public Schools are open all weeklong under a normal schedule before students depart for winter recess. Schools will be closed from Dec. 26 to Jan. 2, 2012.
