SAVE THE DATES - Additional Events
The Borough of Watchung is working on a “Welcome Wagon program that would offer municipal information, local business listings/promotions, and recreation information to new residents. We are currently coordinating a distribution channel that would involve community organizations. The Borough is looking for interested businesses to provide promotional materials such as coupons/discounts, brochures, reusable bags, pens, magnets, reusable cups etc. Please contact Shelini Parikh at the Borough of Watchung at (908)-756-0080 Ext. 221 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in participating or if you have any questions. The Borough will not accept promotional materials after April 29, 2016. Thank you for your consideration.

NOTICE TO RESIDENTS:
Some residents have heard about the proposal/request of Pilgrim Pipeline to utilize the PSE&G right of way for the construction/installation of a pipeline. If approved, the pipeline would apparently run from Albany, NY to Linden. We have been advised that some residents close to the PSE&G easement might have received a letter from either Pilgrim or PSE&G providing details of the proposed plan. If you or any resident that you might be aware of may have received any communication of this nature, please ask them to send a copy to Borough Hall either by e-mail to TAtkins@watchungnj.gov or regular mail. You can also contact Borough Hall at (908)-756-0080. Thank you
