Will the Nature vs. Nurture Debate Ever End?

Government Reform Thought: We asked a simple question this week as to who checked the Hetfield Avenue bridge after last month's truck accident. Fanwood said it was Scotch Plains jurisdiction because it fell on the Scotch Plains side of the bridge. The County said it was NJ Transit's responsibility, yet the County is going to pave the bridge with funding from Scotch Plains and Fanwood. Paving this bridge before it is checked for any possible damage would be a real waste of taxpayer money. - See Year-to-date Reform Thoughts.
