Livingston Installs Community Signs

Livingston Installs Community Signs

The Township of Livingston announced that of the two electronic bulletin board signs, one is already installed and the other will be installed at the end of the month.  The purpose of the signs is to alert residents of upcoming community events and provide emergency notification. One sign is located opposite the Municipal Building (by the Livingston Public Library at the Oval). The other location is outside the Senior/Community Center at 204 Hillside Ave. These high tech bulletin boards will replace the older existing manual notification boards. Both community signs were completely funded by multiple state grants from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

“These signs comply with New Jersey State requirements for public notification of mass immunization of prophylactic  vaccinations, for example, H1N1 virus, shingles etc...,” reported Lou Anello, Director of Health, Welfare, and Human Services, the person who secured the grants for the community signs. “The Livingston Health Department is the point of distribution for all vaccines within the Township, and the knowledgeable staff in the Nursing Department who coordinate the State-mandated mass immunization program, can provide residents with up-to-date information on any health concerns they may have.”

Once activated the community signs will be illuminated throughout the day, and dimmed at night to reduce any glare or hazard to drivers along South Livingston and Hillside Avenues. The signs can be viewed on both sides, and have the capacity to display information in multiple languages. “These signs provide one more way to communicate with residents, and keep them informed of what is happening in the Township,” said Jennifer Hessberger, Director of Senior, Youth and Leisure Services (SYLS).  “As well as public health information, the signs will display emergency notices as well as Township sponsored community events.”

The Department of Health, Welfare and Human Services, and the Department of Senior, Youth and Leisure Services are located at the Livingston Senior Community Center, 204 Hillside Avenue. For more information on programs, and services call the Health Dept at 973 535-7961, and/or SYLS at 973-535-7925. Or visit the Township website at Click on “Health” or “Senior, Youth and Leisure” in the left hand column.
