Coming up this week on Patch
Hasbrouck Heights has been in talks with FEMA representatives regarding reimbursement for costs encrued during Superstorm Sandy. The borough is still in the early stages of filing the paperwork with FEMA to tally up costs from the storm which will mostly be based on overtime hours and equipment use.
As it has been in the past the borough is usually eligible to recieve about 75 percent reimbursement for the total costs encrued by the storm. Patch will update on the latest development.
Talks continue among police officials, school administrators and borough officials regarding security measures at schools and public buildings. Patch plans to bring readers the latest on the discussion.
Updates on ongoing projects such as the Woodland Park pavillion and Boulevard Streetscape are also planned.
Also a reminder for parents that the Collaborative Parents Committee resumes its monthly meetings this Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 7:30p.m. at the middle school/high school media center. The parent-led group is geared towards parents of special education students who want to work together to share ideas for the benefit of their children.
Later this week is the Bone Marrow/Blood Drive which will be held on Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Hasbrouck Heights Municipal Building. Lodi resident Joanne Morrison organized this drive to help get closer to finding a match for her brother Bruce who is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Getting placed on the bone marrow registry is a simple process involving a swab of the inner cheek.
