Township Council Moves On 9/11 Memorial

A bond ordinance earmarking $18,500 for a 9/11 memorial was introduced Feb. 3 by the Township Council.

The money is left over from a 2004 bond ordinance.

A site near the township library has been targeted for the memorial.

“It’s high time” the memorial was built, said Township Councilman Rajiv Prasad, (D-At Large). “I thank the township manager for getting it done.”

Prasad said a steel beam from the World Trade Center had been given to the township to create a memorial.

“Hopefully we can get that memorial built soon,” he said.

The ordinance’s final approval will be voted on in March.
