WARREN, NJ - A bright spot in the last Warren Township Committee Meeting, amid talks about COVID-19, was a presentation of a bronze plaque to former Warren Police Chief Russell Leffert.
The plaque honors Leffert’s commitment to the Township of Warren and recognizes his commitment to moving the police department out of the old trailers and into a new space, the current Warren Town Hall. The plaque will hang at the entrance to the Town Hall.
Leffert preceded current chief William Keane and served as Warren Township police chief from 2006 through 2014. He thanked current Warren Mayor Mick Marion and Deputy Mayor George Lazo who were elected to the Township Committee in 2012 and helped to expand on Leffert’s vision.
“It was your vision and it was a good one, we needed to do things for our police and I applaud you for the effort,” Marion said.
Later in the meeting, the committee discussed a proposal to have the Historic Sites Committee coordinate the first floor of the old town hall building for public use as soon as public gatherings are allowed by health officials.
