Local Company Partners with City to Improve Safety Around Schools

A Linden company is working with Police to get drivers to slow down around a number of local schools. The Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery donated $45,000 to the Police Department in October of last year. The money was used to purchase a total of ten radar speed signs that display the speed of approaching vehicles to warn drivers when they are speeding. For more information, read the press release.

Coronavirus [COVID-19]

Given the rise of the Coronavirus [COVID 19] as a global health concern, we want to assure the community that our office is working closely with the Health Department, to ensure that residents are educated and prepared for the evolving situation. The following is up-to-date information regarding this developing concern. The New Jersey Department of Health hotline is 1-800-222-1222 or 1-800-962-1253 (if using out-of-state phone line) for the public to ask questions about the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

We would also like to remind all members of our community, there are everyday preventive actions that can be taken to help limit the spread of respiratory viruses; including the Coronavirus and flu. Common measures the CDC recommends for the general public include:Avoid close contact with people who are sick.Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. (Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, if soap and water is not available).
