LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston Soccer Club was honored by the mayor and council on Monday for its contribution of $65,000 for the maintenance and restoration of Livingston’s grass fields, which will help to promote the betterment of the quality of life within the community, according to Mayor Ed Meinhardt.

The field restoration project is expected to begin in June 2018. On behalf of the entire board of trustees, Livingston Soccer Club President Steve Toby thanked the township council and the Livingston Department of Public Works (DPW), which will take on the maintenance of these fields, for their support.

“With the large number of folks we have on the board of trustees, I can’t say that we always agree on everything, but we do agree on the following: number one, we love the game of soccer; number two, volunteering your time for the community is a virtue; number three, we always want the best for the kids of Livingston; and number four, you can’t turf everything,” said Toby. “So, when the idea of partnering with our friends at the DPW to figure out how to improve our grass soccer fields was floated, we were very, very excited. I can’t wait for June…I plan to take weeks off of work to watch the grass grow.”

Meinhardt thanked the club for its generous donation and vowed that it would be put to “very good use.”
