An interesting upgrade in communication took place last night. South Orange Village President, Alex Torpey delivered the State of the Village live in an address to the public instead of in an internal town meeting. It was good to hear where the mayor hopes to take the town. The mayor touched on IT, property taxes, redevelopment, ‘bureau pathology,’ green issues, budget and other issues.
One new wrinkle is that there will now be ‘single-stream’ recycling. Glass, aluminum, paper and newspaper will all be combined in a single toter for pickup starting in July. http://www.southorange.org/notices.asp?guid=1f5aa145
