BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ — The Town Council will meet at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2, where the governing body will vote to authorize the creation of a seniors affairs committee. 

According to the language of the ordinance, the new committee is designed to “provide information to the public on various aspects of aging, as well as to identify the needs of, increase communications to, develop and coordinate resources for, and explore appropriate solutions to issues affecting the Township’s senior citizen.”

The new Seniors Affairs Committee, if voted into existence, would replace the Senior Advisory Board as the standing committee serving the aging population in Berkeley Heights.

Tuesday’s vote comes after Patricia Jacobs, a founding member of the organization New Providence Our Community for All, lent her expertise on aging at home during last month's town council meeting.
