Following a protest by township residents, the Millburn Township Committee announced it will appeal the ruling to provide sewer services to 62 more units on the Livingston property.
The Millburn Township Committee said Tuesday night it plans to appeal a recent ruling requiring the township to provide sewer service to a Livingston apartment complex, officials said. The ruling by Judge Dennis Carey of Livingston in Newark Superior Court requires the township to provide sewer service for 62 more units on the Tutor Time property in Livingston. The property, located at 650 S. Orange Ave. was originally zoned by Livingston as a restaurant. Short Hills resident Fred Pollakoff sparked the announcement during public comment Tuesday when he spoke out against the complex. He criticized the Livingston Planning Board for allowing the construction and TMB Partners for proposing it. "I ask that in closed deliberation, the township …

Recent ruling in an affordable housing case with TMB Partners would require Millburn to provide sewer services for many more Livingston units on Tutor Time property.
More than 25 Millburn and Short Hills residents showed up at Tuesday's township committee meeting to rail against a recent Superior Court ruling requiring Millburn Township to provide sewer service to 62 more units on the Tutor Time property in Livingston. The Short Hills Association urged the committee to appeal the ruling against the township in an affordable housing case with TMB Partners. The residents said the ruling would impair a Millburn sewer system that already has serious issues and would forever change the nature of Millburn. "It's not Millburn's responsibility to provide sewer service for a project in another town that has its own capacity," Michael Steinberg of Short Hills said at the meeting. "Let Livingston take care of its…

The loss to Livingston drops the team's record to 2-4. Here's a recap from Fifth Quarter Club Board Member Dave Abrams.
In arguably their best-played game of the season, the Millburn Millers dropped a heartbreaker to the visiting Irvington Blue Knights by a score of 12-7 on Saturday October 20 at Neigel Field in Millburn. The loss drops the Millers’ record to 2-4. It was a game they could have won. If not for one strange sequence and several questionable penalty calls the score could easily have been reversed. The Millers’ next game is away vs. Caldwell on Saturday Oct. 27. Gametime is scheduled for 1 p.m. Read more below.

The committee will not be ready in time for the Sept. 24 meeting.
At the end of this week's Township Committee meeting, the committee members decided to push the public hearing and presentation about Livingston taking over the police dispatch to the meeting on Oct. 9. Committee members Ted Bourke and Thomas McDermott of the subcommittee researching the issue, said they are still waiting on information from Livingston before a complete report can be presented. "We can give an update next meeting," Bourke said. The committee said the original proposed move date, Jan. 1, 2013, was "flexible." Bourke explained the subcommittee still needs to address a few issues and the committee wasn't close to voting on any action. Since the proposed shared services was announced at the end of July, dispatchers, police …

Vote in the poll and tell the community what you think.
In the past week Millburn officials announced Livingston possibly taking over Millburn Police's dispatch. If approved, the township is estimating it will start in early 2013. Although township officials said they have not yet voted on the matter, six Millburn dispatchers said they were told two months ago they are losing their jobs starting Jan. 1, 2013. The township said the proposal is in a subcommittee with committee members Ted Burke and Tom DcDermott, Mayor Sandra Haimoff said. Also, the subcommittee meets with the police chief and fire representatives who give their reports on the proposal. Haimoff said there will be a public hearing on the issue with a full presentation during the September Township Committee Meeting.

The town's dispatchers say they have been told two months ago Livingston will take over dispatching, though the town has yet to formally vote on the matter.
Although Millburn Township officials announced a possible outsourcing of police dispatchers to Livingston and have not yet voted on the matter, six Millburn dispatchers said they were told two months ago they are losing their jobs starting Jan. 1, 2013. The township said earlier this week the proposal for these shared services was in a subcommittee for consideration and not yet approved. The subcommittee is supposed to give a report at the next Township Committee meeting on Aug. 21. where it may be acted upon. Yet, the dispatchers, who have released a letter as a group, say they believe the township has already made up its mind. They said they knew they were losing their jobs since the end of May. According to the business administrator, …

Short Hills residents are worried about the fate of their neighborhood and town if Livingston goes forward with project as planned.

To the Editor: Livingston's Planning Board hearings are reaching their conclusion. The format of the meetings is such that the public will be allowed speak to the board about safety and the like, probably in the next meeting (Thursday, May 31 at 8 p.m.). South Orange Avenue at the TMB site (the intersection of White Oak Ridge Road) has a well documented history of traffic accidents. TMB's traffic expert made no reference to the history of the site and provided a perfunctory report about waiting times at the intersection and the like. Of course, he concluded that traffic conditions would be better with TMB's 62-unit apartment complex in place than with the Tutor Time day care center now on the site. Left turns are forbidden from the South …

TMB Partners presents its project to build 62-housing units by the Short Hills border.
The builders of a proposed housing complex on the Tutor Time site said they will build a rain garden, add a buffer zone with plantings and use vegetation that is deer-resistant and helps absorb water to ensure proper drainage at the complex. TMB Partners, the company seeking to build 62 housing units on the lot at 650 South Orange Avenue, outlined plans for the layout, drainage and landscaping of the project at a three-hour meeting of the Livingston Planning Board Tuesday night. The proposal for 50 market-rate units and 12 affordable-housing units has been wending its way through the township for about five years and has been scaled back from its original proposal of 100 units. TMB Partners, which is the project’s owner, needs a variance …

Wednesday's program drew nearly 150 intent listeners from Livingston, Millburn.
Although Jenny Smith sat in the back row of the Livingston High School Fitness and Wellness Center bleachers, Jack Renkens brought her front and center. The founder and president of Recruiting Realities was illustrating a point Wednesday night, saying the star Millburn girls basketball junior point guard looked like a great fit at Division III Simpson College. Question was: if Smith was offered an all-expenses-paid education in addition to playing collegiately at a lower-profile institution, would she take it? “Sure,” Smith said. As part of his “The Realities of College Recruiting” program presented Wednesday night at Livingston High School jointly by LHS athletic director Patrick Gennaro and Millburn High School AD Ted D'Alessio, Renkens …
