WEST ORANGE, NJ — After hearing complaints at a recent West Orange Township Council meeting from residents of the John P. Renna House for seniors about the poor upkeep of the facility, West Orange Councilman Jerry Guarino spoke with officials at the Raymond P. Marzulli real estate firm to make sure they are addressing issues of concern.

He announced at Tuesday’s council meeting that Marzulli would ensure that any ripped carpets will be replaced and also agreed to look at ways to improve the facility’s security.

“It is important that we improve the lines of communications between Renna House residents and Marzulli management,” said Guarino. “The Renna House board will also be looking into whether we are getting the most bang for the buck when it comes to effectively managing this building for seniors.”
