The Union County Local Source (known online as the Union New Daily), this week, reported that land that was promised to be sold as a way to reduce the cost to tax payers for the construction of the turf field is contaminated and therefore unsellable.

Youth Art Month, Impervious Surface Reduction
The Township Committee met twice this week during regular work and legislative sessions. Among the topics discussed, Mayor David Amlen read a proclamation naming March as Youth Art Month. Additionally, the Township Committee passed an ordinance modifing Recreation Committee meeting dates to four times a year. Finally, Commiteeman David Barnett requested that the Township look into the feasibility of reducing impervious surfaces on municipal land. Sighting a Cranford initiative, David Barnett stated he’d “like to know if Springfield could also make a commitment to reduce impervious surfaces and therefore reduce the amount of water run-off and potential flooding.”
