THE WEEK IN REVIEW
Morris Lake was 9 inches below the top of the spillway on 8.11.14.

We are waiting to receive a draft of the Byram/Tax Collector agreement as they are still mulling over options on their end. I will keep you posted.

A meeting was held this week with Sen. Oroho and representatives from the State of NJ to discuss the status of the Armory project. I hope to have direction on same to report back to Council in September.

We anticipate the arrival of our new Senior Shuttle bus in the next 2 weeks.

A preliminary review of the draft McGuire Redevelopment Plan occurred this week.

Plans are underway for the 1st annual Newton Country Cool Festival @ SCCC! I will provide you with more details shortly.

Linda and I worked on the tax exempt property letters and will continue to do so next week.

Our next SID/Downtown tour has been scheduled for next week. Next stop: Somerville!

A careless driver ran her vehicle into the municipal building pillars out front and was charged. She was issued summonses for DWI and Careless Driving. Luckily no one was hurt during the incident.

The DPW regionalization study is progressing on schedule. A meeting has been scheduled for August 29th to discuss status of same.

Enjoy your weekend!

Yours for a Better Newton,
