A reminder to get your pool passes and enjoy the summer fun @ The Newton Pool!

The next Council meeting is Monday, July 28th @ 7:00pm.

THE WEEK IN REVIEW
Morris Lake was 2 inches below the top of the spillway on 7.7.14.

Our visit to Morristown was very productive. We met with the leadership of the Morristown Partnership (SID) and toured the downtown. Our next SID/Downtown tour has been scheduled for later this month. Next stop: Westfield!

I hosted our monthly staff meeting at Morris Lake in Sparta so department heads could see firsthand the beauty that is our water source. Special thanks to Mayor Elvidge for taking time out of his busy schedule to join us.

Routine business was discussed at the monthly Statewide Insurance meeting.

Work continues on the conversion of one of the Ground Floor bathrooms at Town Hall into storage space.

DPW staff is working with several vendors on the quotes for electrical/electronic upgrades to the soon-to-be renovated Council chambers.

The DPW regionalization study is progressing on schedule.

Enjoy your weekend!

Yours for a Better Newton,
TSRJR
