Recent Letter to the Editor:
Township Salary Comparison – Manager is Unresponsive
At a recent conference meeting of the Mayor and Council, Michele Meade was requested to prepare an analysis comparing salaries paid to Livingston employees with other municipalities.  I was surprised by the Township Manager's reply.  She indicated that it would be difficult given the lack of cooperation with other communities…

Sobel Solutions: Beware of Bogus IRS Emails
Email scams abound today – as users are bombarded with everything from the infamous Nigerian scam to false reports of lottery winnings, to counterfeit pre-paid credit card offerings to phony web pages. Even the Internal Revenue Service is not immune!..

Livingston Community Corner: Two Weeks and Counting
With less than two weeks and counting, it’s crunch time for getting classrooms ready for the first day of school. At Livingston High School, custodians wiped down dozens and dozens of lockers, where, like the other schools we visited, the hallways were scattered with boxes and cleaning supplies. By the end of the week, schools will shine with fresh wax and desks realigned in perfect rows.
