ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS...The Christmas spirit was all around Fanwood last Sunday at the borough’s annual holiday celebration. The day was filled with music, holiday crafts and refreshments, with a visit from Santa to spread holiday cheer and hear wishes from Fanwood’s children and pets.

MAYOR-A-MAYOR...Scotch Plains Mayor Martin Marks talks with Westfield Mayor Andrew Skibitsky at the Rahway Valley Sewerage Authority meeting last Thursday. At the meeting, the RVSA told local mayors that it expects municipal assessments to double by the year 2010.

We believe that governments should post all meeting agendas on their websites in advance of the meeting in a visible, logical place for citizens. Meeting minutes should similarly be posted following meetings. All levels of government should use the Internet as a tool for fostering open communication with their constituents. Some municipalities currently use the Internet in this manner; we believe all should follow. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
