At last night’s council meeting there were some items discussed where residents can get involved:
- Per Mayor Nolan, there will be seats opening up on the Planning Board and the Zoning Board. Interested candidates need to complete the Citizen Leadership Form and deliver it to Carolyn Cummins. The form can be found here:
Higlandsnj.com, then click Borough Hall and you’ll get the page with all the boxes. Click “Municipal Forms” which is the second row, right hand column. Scroll down to the section “Municipal Clerk Forms” and the Citizen Leadership Form is the 2nd to the last in that section.
- If you are interested in volunteering to assist in the repairs to the VFW Hall or the Community Center, you can sign up at Rebuilding Together Also, A Future With Hope is working on some local projects. You can find that list here: and volunteer here: http://www.afuturewithhope.org/registertovolunteer
