At a recent Elizabeth Township Council meeting, the meeting began with Elizabeth Township EMS Chris Dell announcing the poster contest winners from Mt. Vernon and Central Elementary schools. In 3rd place were Chad and Sidney, 2nd place was awarded to Rachel and Kaitlyn, and Savannah and Penelope took home first place. Winning posters will be hung in the municipal building. Congratulations, winners!
The EMS team also donated new first aid kits and AED monitors to the new community center.
Parks and Recreation is trying to get a grant from Huntley and Huntley to begin the dek hockey project. Pennsylvania American Water is to install fire hydrants on Smithfield Street in Boston because as it stands at this time, there is none. This department also gave a round of applause to Chief Kerestes for recovering the stolen Port-O-Potty over Memorial Day weekend from the Boston Fields. Kerestes laughingly corrected Miss Bryce and handed over the applause to Officer Ron Makosey, as he was the one who recollected the stall.
The road department will be mulching all playgrounds and putting up new flags while certain roads are being discussed as to repaving.
