Our next Council meeting is Monday, October 22nd at 7:00pm.



The Morris Lake Reservoir was 26 inches below the top of the spillway on 10.8.12.  Even though we received quite a bit of rain, the water restrictions are still in place.


The Sparta Town Center transmission mains were connected on Tuesday, October 9, 2012.  My thanks to all W/S personnel who assisted in this project. 


My annual budget memorandum went out to all department heads requesting their 2013 budget information by Friday, October 26th.


Our new display advertisement is up and running on The Alternative Press website (for October-December) and we are looking to do something similar on the NJ Herald website for November-December.  This is all part of our new aggressive marketing program to tout Newton as the destination spot in Sussex County for shopping and dining.


Sources indicate heightened interest in the Bula’s building on Spring Street as well as Blue Iris.  I will keep you posted as conditions warrant.


Enjoy your weekend!  Go Giants!
