THE WEEK IN REVIEW
The visit to Westfield went very well this week. Our next SID/Downtown tour has been scheduled for later this month. Next stop: Somerville!

Interviews are being conducted for Code Enforcement Trainee as per Civil Service guidelines.

We met this week with the coordinator of the Jersey Food Truck festival which is being hosted at County College of Morris on August 9th from 10:00am to 6:00pm. We are considering hosting same in Newton sometime this fall or next year. I will keep you posted!

The property auction was held this week with no successful bidders present. We have reached out to Ursula to coordinate next steps.

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