WESTFIELD, NJ — Trained bow hunters participating in a county program are anticipated to fire arrows from raised tree stands in Brightwood Park and the Conservation Center next month in an effort to reduce the town’s burgeoning deer population. Town Council members approved a revised hunt plan by a vote of 6-2. 

It was the last town council meeting for Republicans JoAnn Neylan, Frank Arena and Doug Stokes. The three accepted recognition for their combined 32 years of service as family and friends watched Tuesday at Town Hall. 

Westfield gave a warm welcome back to members of the 1st Squadron, 102nd Cavalry Regiment, New Jersey Army National Guard, who had been away for nearly a year. Read these stories and more, below.
