HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – The Hamilton Township Municipal Building meeting room was filled to capacity Monday, Oct. 21, mostly with residents of the Tavistock Development on Route 40, anxious to hear from their developer about unfinished improvements that they have been complaining about for years. Unfortunately, the developer and his representatives failed to appear.
Mayor Amy Gatto began by reading a letter from the developer’s controller, Anthony Sciacca, stating that he has not gotten any direction from the homeowners’ association board of directors.
Many veterans served where there were “health issues of exposure” and must apply for Veterans Administration health care or V.A. benefits “claims.”
To the editor:
Veterans’ Day is a day of sorrow and remembrance of all who died in the service of our nation, and for the many who returned home.
Many of our military served along side these heroes in remote areas of the world, and many were on standby. All should be recognized for their service wherever or whenever they served for our nation’s needs.
