At the Township Committee meeting held Tuesday, January 8, 2019, Sandyston-Walpack School teacher, Stacey Tarbell, and her 5th grade students presented an American Flag which they made in honor of Veterans for Veterans Day. The students presented the American Flag to the Township Committee to be displayed in the municipal building. The students told those present in the room the history of Veterans Day and why they created this American Flag. Thank you Mrs. Tarbell and each student for creating this beautiful flag and attending the meeting, with your parents, and presenting your beautiful flag. We will have the American Flag framed and it will be proudly displayed in the municipal building commemorating your tribute to all Veterans.

Thank you also Dr. Jeanne Apryasz, Superintendent of Sandyston-Walpack School, as well as Jo-Ann Williamson and Nina Vassallo, Board of Education members for attending and supporting Mrs. Tarbell and the students.
On Thursday, January 10, 2019, Mayor Harper had a productive meeting with representatives from Centurylink. It has been a long road with many letters and emails but we have been told today that Centurylink has contracted Lambert Tree Service who will be performing tree and vegetation trimming on several township roads in Sandyston Township next week on phone lines which stand alone and are not on power utility lines/poles. Flatbrook, Hotalen and Ridge Road have been determined to need attention with other roads to follow. They will also be doing work along Route 206 in Sandyston once the proper permits have been obtained to occupy the roadway. They are also scheduling the fixing of several low hanging and jumbled wires in several sections of town and a new pole will eventually be installed along Route 206 in Stokes where the pole snapped and was removed but not replaced. We thank Centurylink and the Board of Public Utilities for listening working with us.
Please know the Township continues to work on these issues and we appreciate your support and patience.
