Water Water Everywhere, but Matawan?
When will our Borough Council get down to the real issues in Matawan. The dams for one. The water plant for another. Before all the political posturing begins, let's have some real accomplishments in our Borough. Oops! The posturing has already begun, a weekly publication has been making Matawan and our "Photo Op" Councilman one of the topics for its paper. By the way, you don't have to subscribe to this publication, nor do you have to pay for it, the newspaper "fairy" delivers to Matawan. Isn't that a coincidence. Never received it before but now it appears in driveways all over Matawan. Forgive me for that digression!
Will Matawan be leasing water from other source? I'm not familiar with the problems or costs of upgrading Matawan's water plant. What I'd like to hear at Council meetings is not about parties given by the Matawan Alliance on Main St., or parking issues at 201 Broad St., BUT alternatives and costs for our water plant. Ideas on what options we have available to us. Are we making progress with the Dams? Stop bantering back and forth and discuss the real issues facing our Borough.
