The New Providence Council discussed that warm and damp weather could cause the Borough to push back their work on the turf field. Also discussed was the upcoming budget.
The turf field at Hillview is facing delays due to the recent warm and damp weather the Borough has experienced, according to councilman Alan Lesnewich.

Mayor Brooke Hern pointed out that what Lesnewich was referring to is that in order to turf they need to get heavy equipment across the field, but the grass is too soft and wet to do so. The plan was to start the work next week, Lesnewich said, but next week’s …
