BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The last snowstorm pushed the township over the edge, and the council recently approved a resolution to put more money into snow removal services.

The council approved an emergency purchase to RJS Associates Landscaping Inc., of Bridgewater, for snow removal services not to exceed $75,000.

According to township administrator James Naples, they thought they would be able to get through the season on the budget they had already appropriated.
