LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Township Council held a conference meeting in addition to its regular meeting on Monday evening.

At the regular meeting, an ordinance was unanimously approved with the purpose to annualize the salaries of school crossing guards, paying them for 12 months and categorizing them as regular part-time employees working less than 20 hours per week.

Shapiro said, “We saw this done in other townships and we have the expectation this will save the township money each year.”
