It's that time of year again for Garage Sales / Yard Sales.  As a reminder for our residents, please DO NOT post signs or posters on utility poles.

Nails, staples or other fasteners used to attach signs to poles can be hazardous to workers who must climb these poles to repair or maintain our equipment.  In addition, state law prohibits the posting of signs or outdoor advertising on utility poles. 

Our Green Team was awarded a $2,000 Sustainable Jersey capacity-building grant funded by the PSEG Foundation. Grants were distributed to 32 municipalities to fund a variety of projects including reclaiming paved surfaces for community gardens, protecting community tree cover, water conservation, green infrastructure, natural resources protection, park revitalization, promoting healthy lifestyles and green team capacity building. Bernardsville successfully completed a number of green team initiatives including education and outreach programs, the community garden, and flood hazard mitigation research.
"The work of our Green Team has been recognized by the community and surprisingly, new projects are being recommended that they were not aware of prior to receiving the grant." –Kevin Sooy, Mayor, Bernardsville
