KENILWORTH, NJ - The Borough Council on Wednesday introduced an ordinance authorizing parking spaces for Combat Wounded veterans. The idea for the ordinance originated with the Kenilworth Veteran Affairs Committee. 

A public hearing and adoption of the ordinance is scheduled for Wednesday
March 28.

Five newly designated purple “Combat Wounded” parking spots will be unveiled
at various locations in the borough.

“Almost 2 million wounded service men and women are transitioning back to civilian life," said Kenilworth Mayor Anthony DeLuca, who serves on the Veteran Affairs Committee. "This is a modest gesture to show we
recognize their sacrifice and more importantly we love and respect them.”

The Commanders of the Kenilworth VFW and American Legion will be identifying Kenilworth’s combat wounded and providing them with decals for their vehicles.

“Wounds may heal but memories remain. In Kenilworth we acknowledge and
honor our Veterans.” said Councilman Robert Schielke, himself having served
with the U.S. Navy.
