NEWTON, NJ – The lobby of Newton Town Hall has a shiny new directory. The new electronic board will display information about activities and events going on in the community as well as announcements and a directory of the municipal departments, all set to music.

The project was conceived by Town Manager Thomas S. Russo, Jr. “Since June, Tom wanted to go digital,” said Michelle Estremera, Secretary in the Municipal Clerk’s office. 

Estermera, together with Mark Grivits designed the television screen to be fixed behind a protective Lexan panel, framed with brushed stainless  and topped with the seal of Newton. 

“I’m very proud of it, to see it live and in color is good,” said Estremera.
