2012 Livingston Township Employee Service Awards


In times of economic stress, where each dollar is stretched to its maximum capacity to provide quality service to Livingston residents, it is especially important to recognize those employees who are expected to do more work with fewer resources. A Township’s prosperity is measured in the dedication of its staff, the diversity of skills, experience, and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty.

There is no greater evidence of the importance and dedication of Township employees than work performed under extreme circumstances such as before, during, and after a Hurricane or the October snow storm last year.  The Livingston Township Employee Service Awards are a small token of thanks, and Livingston Township would like to shine a spotlight of gratitude on this year’s awards recipients who have worked hard in providing a safe and secure community that we can all be proud of.

For the last 70 years, Charlie Schilling has served the Township well, proving that vitality and energy does not decrease with age. Russell A. Jones, Jr. is celebrating 40 years of service, John Hickey celebrates 35 years, and Anthony Cilenti is celebrating 30 years of service.

Celebrating 10 years are Shawn McNamara, Frank Chan, Susan Muntz, and Colleen Pisciotti. Ryan Manger, Jeanette Harduby, Vivian Dippold, Alfonse Dipopolo, and Michal Salerno are celebrating 5 years of service.

“I am very proud of the Township employees all of whom work hard every day to make the Livingston community a better place to live and to do business, “said Township Manager Michele E. Meade.

The problem is that in my deluded head, I can see actually see myself standing atop the podium.  I am wrapped in a puffy designer ski coat with a huge piece of bling slung around my neck ...
