Livingston to Celebrate Founders' Day as Bicentennial Observances Roll On

February 5, 2013 at 6:59 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - At Monday night’s town council meeting, former Mayor Ellie Cohen brought more detail about February’s Bicentennial theme, “Honoring our Founders.”

She said that in honor of celebrating the signing of Livingston’s Charter of Incorporation on Feb. 5, 1813, a Founders' Day observance will take place tonight, Feb. 5, at town hall with former Governor Tom Kean in attendance.

Cohen added that cookies made from their original recipes from 1813 will be served at the event and there will be historical cookbooks for sale.

“I think we’ll have a nice turnout, it’s scheduled to be a very nice event,” Bicentennial Vice Chair Scott Maynard said.

Maynard said the displays in town hall are “unbelievable” and out of the 36 people who signed the charter back in 1813, three descendants will be in attendance, traveling from as far as California.

Cohen voiced her excitement at Kean honoring the occasion.

“The governor is excited about coming here. He is truly one of the most outstanding residents of Livingston,” Cohen said.

Cohen thanked the town council for their support and said that 2013 is going to be a terrific year of celebrations.

In other news, Essex County Liaison, Eileen Fishman told the council that in an effort to reduce prescription drug abuse, the county is having a lock box program where the public can drop off unused or discontinued medications at the Belleville and North Caldwell police stations, no questions asked.

There was also a proposed ordinance brought to the table that according to Mayor Rudy Fernandez, would consist of a lot to be rezoned and used as a parking lot even though it is currently considered residential.

Fernandez added that this is a “very business friendly” ordinance and will be discussed further during the March 11 meeting.

All resolutions were approved by councilmembers such as the Livingston Community Partnership Corporation (BID) Budget and the approval to Submit Grant Application and Execute Grant Agreement with State of New Jersey.
