Gov. Phil Murphy and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs awarded a total of $800,000 in funding to help three towns in the 18th Legislative District complete approved improvement projects.

East Brunswick received $400,000 from the Municipal Facility Renovation program for renovations of the township’s municipal building, public works building and facilities departments. The funding will assist with security upgrades, a new entrance, an Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant elevator, interior renovations to serve the public and a computer network.

 

Edison received $300,000 from the Landfill Closure Project Design program to be used for the design of the closure plan for the township’s landfill on Mill Road.

 

Metuchen received $100,000 from the Shade Tree Management program for the management of dead or overgrown trees on borough-owned property and of trees in the right of way that have become a danger to the community with the advent of high-wind events and unpredictable weather patterns.

Senator Patrick Diegnan, Assemblyman Robert Karabinchak, and Assemblyman Sterley Stanley, who represent the 18th Legislative District, are grateful to Governor Murphy and the Department of Community Affairs for giving needed support to the approved projects.

“Thank you Governor Murphy and the Department of Community Affairs, for giving needed support to these approved projects,” Diegnan said.
