Board Approves New Caretaker for H.M Levitz Memorial Park

At the recent Board of Supervisors meeting in East Hanover Township on January 30th, the township discussed the matter of who would take over the H.M Levitz Memorial Park caretaker position. The former caretaker, Ross Henderson, is retiring after maintaining the property for an extended period of time.

After reviewing several applications, the board approved the motion to appoint Michael Rice to the position. The caretaker position will pay $10 per hour along with township benefits, including the privilege of residing on the property with full utilities paid. However, the appointment is contingent on passing a background check and completing a 90-day probationary period.

The township is experimenting with electronic speed signal signs placed in various locations, from Ono to Park Drive, to monitor drivers’ behavior and determine dangerous driving areas and times. The township is recording the data collected to determine future actions on how to monitor and manage these spots and times.

The township is sending postcards to residents to participate in a land view survey. The survey aims to determine the community’s opinions and preferences on East Hanover and will be used by the township and board to consider future actions.

The township reminds community members that if they are looking to recycle fluorescent lightbulbs, they can take them to Schaedler Yesco in Lebanon for a small fee.

In conclusion, the Board of Supervisors meeting addressed important matters, including the appointment of a new caretaker for H.M Levitz Memorial Park, measures to improve road safety, a land view survey for residents, and a reminder to recycle fluorescent lightbulbs.
