MADISON, NJ – For many, Sept. 11, 2001 is a day that cannot be forgotten. Some of us recall that Tuesday as if it were yesterday. Some never made it to tomorrow.

Madison Cub Scout Pack #124 honored the six Madison residents at tonight's council meeting who lost their lives in the World Trade Center terror attacks 16 years ago.

“The world we knew changed that day,” Conley said.

A black ribbon of mourning was draped over the American flag at the head of the council meeting room, placed there as a symbol of remembrance for the fallen by four of the pack’s members, fifth graders from Central Avenue School and Torey J. Sabatini Elementary School.

Among those recognized were Madison first responders, including Madison PBA #92, Madison FMBA #74 and Madison Superior Officers Association #92. Conley thanked each of them for their service.

“The efforts of first responders will never be forgotten,” he said.

A collective bargaining agreement between the three first-responder associations was subsequently approved at tonight's council meeting.

Madison Police Department will also gain a new officer. Nelson Jimenez will join the force after the council tonight unanimously approved his appointment.
