Let's Start Thinking About Spring
A public information meeting regarding the Community Garden project will be held on Thursday, March 5th at 7:00 pm at the Senior Center, 12 Halsey Reed Road. The purpose of the meeting is to provide interested residents with detailed information about the Community Garden. The information covered will include: garden plot size, number of plots available, location, annual membership cost and how the community garden will operate. The Friends of the Monroe Township Community Garden is sponsoring the program.
Barbara McCloskey, a consultant from the Land Conservancy of New Jersey, will present this exciting new community program to residents.
Transportation Trust Fund Running on Empty
Just as New Jersey's Transportation Trust Fund is set to expire we see an increasing number of bridges closed as a result of safety concerns. Unless the State finds a long-term revenue solution to provide funding for infrastructure repair we can expect the deterioration of our roadways to continue at an accelerating pace. To compound the problem we are entering the time of the year when potholes will begin to proliferate as winter gives way to warmer weather. The freezing and thawing of water on our roadways created monumental potholes last year. Without the necessary funding those potholes will go largely unrepaired. It's a good time to be in the tire business.
While I agree that stable funding is needed I can't help but wonder if these bridge closings are intended to create a sense of urgency in advance of an increase in the gasoline tax.
