West Elizabeth seeks funds for aging sirens

Friday, June 6, 2014, 2:16 a.m.
 

West Elizabeth officials are searching for funds to repair or replace the borough fire department's aging sirens.

The sirens, which aren't functioning correctly, were discussed at a council meeting this week, said council president Louise Biddle.

“We're looking for a price quote,” said Biddle, who believes the borough may be able to obtain funding for new or repaired sirens. “We're going to investigate if there is (Urban Development Action Grant) money available.”

Biddle said the fire sirens belong to the borough.

In other news, the borough is introducing a measure aimed at helping the community's food bank at Olivet United Presbyterian Church restock its pantry.

Biddle said monthly Sharing Compassion Days will take place the second Tuesday of every month at the borough building from 9 a.m. to noon and from 2-5 p.m.

On those days, residents can donate nonperishable food items at the borough building and the borough will give those items to the food bank.
