Here are a few things going on in Wayne this week and something we’re working on for Wayne Patch.
- We’ll talk to town planner John Szabo and dive into the recently-announced redevelopment project. The multi-faceted project has the potential to not only bolster property taxes, but may make the township a much more desirable place to live.
- There will be a job fair and career workshops offered at William Paterson University on Friday, Aug. 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Local companies in the healthcare, security, financial, and manufacturing sectors will have representatives on hand to accept applications and resumes.
Several workshops will be offered as well. Topics include: using social media in your job search, how to apply for government jobs, and improving one’s presentation skills. A resume writing and critiquing workshop will also be offered.
For more information, see the attached flyer.
- The council is slated to introduce an ordinance Wednesday renaming the Wayne Township Animal Shelter to the Alan Purcell Animal Shelter.
Purcell is a volunteer with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and volunteered at the shelter for many years.
Purcell was instrumental in getting the shelter moved to Pompton Plains Crossroads.
Purcell resigned from the council earlier this year. He has been suffering from Emphysema for years and must use a portable oxygen tank to help him breathe.
- A special presentation to the Wayne Little League team that won the state sectional championship will be conducted at the council meeting.
