Apartment Developer Meets Officials, Board Bids Farewell This Week

Be sure to place your vote for Long Valley's person of the year!

There are just three full weeks remaining in 2013, and this is one of them. Can you believe it? Where did the time go?!?!

Speaking of time, let’s get down to business and stop wasting time, shall we?

Two major meetings this week you should be aware of, beginning Monday night.

The West Morris Regional High School Board of Education will hold its final regular meeting of 2013 at 7 p.m. at Mendham High School, which also happens to be the final meeting of two current board members who were not re-elected.

Current board president and Chester Township representative James Johnston, who did not seek re-election, will hold court for his last session after nine years on the district’s governing body. Johnston is being replaced in 2014 by Gary Lakritz.

Mendham Borough representative Jacke Schram will also take part in her final meeting, as she lost the election to newcomer Brian Cavanaugh. Schram has been the board’s finance committee chairperson for several years.

At the most recent board meeting, a heated discussion arose over the distribution of newsletters and their timing by the school administration. Find out more here.

On Wednesday, the Washington Township Committee will hold its final work session meeting of the year, with a major item scheduled on the agenda.

Representatives for Kings Highway, LLC will be on hand to further discuss an apartment development project on Kings Highway in place of USR Optonix, an industrial site near Rt. 57.

Since the November meeting of the township committee where town planner David Banisch gave his analysis of the situation, residents have come out against the project and formed a petition to send to officials.

The meeting is open to the public and scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the municipal building on Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Finally, we need your nominations this week! We’ve asked you to nominate the person, group or business you think should win Patch’s Person of the Year in Long Valley for 2013.

Go here to find out more and cast your vote.

Have a great week, Washington Township!
