Weekly roundup: sustainability, transparency and leaf collection

Another interesting week in Monroe Township

Sustainable Monroe Township will work toward green infrastructure

It was announced at last Monday’s council meeting that Sustainable Monroe Township was granted $10,000 in federal funding and $5,000 from Rutgers University to work with the Great Egg Harbor Watershed Association. Patrick McDevitt from Sustainable Monroe Township was enthusiastic when talking about the opportunity.

“We saw Rutgers working all over the state so I made some inquiries,” McDevitt explained. “Luckily I was able to hook up with Fred Akers [from Great Egg Harbor Watershed Association] and he was able to access some funding to get Rutgers down here to do a project in Monroe.”

Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office takes step toward transparency

“Every day, law enforcement officers across New Jersey work closely with the members of the public to keep our streets safe,” Grewal said. “But that does not mean we cannot do better.” The goal of the “21/21 Project” is “encouraging dialogue on critical issues, and building relationships of trust that will continue after these meetings are adjourned.”

Last Tuesday’s meeting was hosted by Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office First Assistant Prosecutor Paul Colangelo, Sgt. Stacie Lick of the Special Investigations Unit, and Det. Bryn Wilden of the Special Investigations Unit of the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office.
