Our sincere condolences to the Faye family and all those impacted by the tragic accident that occurred recently. Please take a moment during your day today to be thankful for the blessings we all have and remember those that were taken far too soon.
On May 23rd, please wear white in memory of Lexi Faye as numerous schools/school districts and organizations are participating that day. Newton Strong.

A friendly reminder that Summer Hours commence next week. Thursdays until 6:30pm and Fridays until 1:30pm.
Our interns have been scheduled for the summer. We welcome Danny, Hannah, and Kathryn to the team! Make sure you say hello to them when you see them around.
TRC reviewed one application which will be on PB agenda for June.
PB reviewed the three draft ordinances for Council at my request. T3 will be on for introduction at our next meeting, and the soil ordinance and animal ordinance will be on for discussion.
The Master Plan subcommittee met this week to finalize the draft recommendations. Same will be discussed with the PB in July.
I had a conference call this week with numerous staff members, Mayor Le Frois, Councilman Dickson, members of the 24th Legislative District office, and our friends from DCA in Trenton. We are still advocating our position as it relates to the regulations surrounding rooming houses. I will keep you posted as conditions warrant.
I did our first Facebook Live event this week, announcing the winners of the Summer Movie contest: A Dog’s Way Home and How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World! Also, no Spidey. I think it has been viewed about 73 million times thus far, or not.
Have a great weekend! Be safe.
Yours in Service,
