The calendar says that it's officially fall, yet the weather in Livingston sure still feels an awful lot like summer. Students in the district are certainly excited, after all with their first official vacation days scheduled for the end of the week.
Here's what's happening this week in Livingston:
1. The township council will hold a night of municipal meetings at the Town Hall. A conference meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. followed by a regular meeting at 8 p.m. Among the various agenda items, the council is expected to take a vote on a final ordinance regarding new traffic regulations in the Regency Club, a gated community located off of Passaic Avenue.
If passed, the new ordinance will set a speed limit of 25 mph on all roadways within the community and implement stop signs at various intersections.
2. The Livingston Public Schools Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SEPAC) will hold their first meeting of the school year this Tuesday, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Heritage Middle School media center.
The group, which formed this past January, has a goal to help foster better communication between parents of students in the township's special education program and the district.
"Our biggest responsibility is to give parents information on how to navigate the special education system in the School District and the State," said Lawrence Russell, Assistant Superintendent of Student Services and Instruction, in the group's newsletter.
