After the second West Morris Regional Education Advisory Committee meeting on June 7, Mayor Ken Short reported back to the committee with the outcome of the session, and asked the governing body to decide–again–if it was in agreement with spending $10,000 on a feasibility study for the area school’s structure. .
The committee also awarded a bid for a new fire truck that was included in this year’s capital budget. Within that same topic, however, the group decided it would likely move forward with conducting a study to assess how the Washington Township Fire Department is working, and if more or less equipment and houses were needed. .
