Mayor Conley and Councilman Landrigan will hold an informational meeting this Thursday afternoon at 4:30pm in the council chambers of Hartley Dodge to discuss Madison's efforts to help the Borough of Union Beach recover from super storm Sandy. All residents are welcome to attend as well as representatives from scout troops, churches, civic organizations, and local employers.

After a series of meetings with Union Beach officials, it was determined that efforts would be directed towards three main areas:
1) residential disaster relief,
2) the Union Beach school, and
3) Project PAUL, a regional organization that offers social services, a food pantry and thrift shop.

The presentation will include:
- Photos of the recent visits to Union Beach by Madison delegates on Thursday November 29 and Saturday December 2,
- An explanation why union beach was selected,
- suggestions on how people can volunteer their time and expertise,
- ways to donate to the relief efforts,
- goals Mayor Conley and Councilman Landrigan hope to accomplish with this initiative.

A webpage on rosenet will be launched shortly detailing the program.
