LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston Township Council unanimously voted to show its support for both the Livingston Police Department and the Livingston Fire Department by painting a blue line on the street in front of police headquarters as well as red lines on the streets with Livingston firehouses.

At a public meeting on Tuesday, the council also approved a request for a resolution to oppose the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) against Israel. By agreeing to this request, the council’s resolution condemns all efforts to delegitimize Israel, and endorses the goal of a two-state solution.

Later, Livingston Municipal Alliance Committee (LMAC) was recognized for all of the work it does to prevent substance abuse, as well as to acknowledge Red Ribbon Week (October 24-31), a mission to increase people’s commitment to a drug-free life for themselves and their families. Accepting the plaque on behalf of the LMAC were Susan Ridley, program supervisor of community services and LMAC coordinator, and Zanna Lantzman, LMAC Red Ribbon Chair and PTA Council Red Ribbon Chair.

In other news, ordinances passed during the meeting included one that will extend the hours of alcohol being sold in town on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. rather than the current 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. hours.

During public comment, long-time township resident Robert Hunter said that many residents on Irving Avenue remain concerned about Oxford House, an addiction-recovery home, operating on their street.

“The residents were particularly upset that they were not made aware of this home opening in their area, and most only became aware of it after the tragic passing last year of one of the girls that lived there,” said Hunter, who added that he will continue to monitor this home carefully, as well as make sure its residents abide by the township’s parking regulations.

Anthony said he has been in touch with the people who run this home, and he is satisfied that its residents are complying with all township regulations.
