PLAINFIELD, NJ — David and Cheryl Buckman's Zoning Board of Adjustments application, 2019-27-1127 Watchung Avenue, was on Wednesday's agenda. Board Attorney Peter Vignuolo said the application had been properly noticed and was "ready to go."

But earlier today, Vignuolo said he received an email from Mr. Buckman, who indicated that as a result of Tuesday's Tropical Storm Isaias, a portion of the roof had been ripped off, they are dealing with related leaks, and they are also without power.

The Buckmans asked for their application to be carried to the next available meeting, and not be required to re-notice.
