     The West Caldwell Governing Body's Legal and Personnel Committee has been developing a staffing plan for the  Township of West Caldwell over the past few months. With the recent announcement of Jock Watkins' departure from the Township, we have modified our plan to provide for both short-term and long-term coverage with regards to the Township Administrator position.

On behalf of the Township of West Caldwell, we thank Jock Watkins for his dedicated and loyal service to West Caldwell, and wish him the best of luck and success in his future endeavors. Additionally, we thank Michael Bramhall for filling in, and we are confident he will provide exceptional support in the interim.
