Hunterdon County Independent Audit Reports No Issues For Fourth Consecutive Year
Hunterdon County’s financial records for 2018 were cleared with no issues or recommendations for corrective action by the County’s independent auditor for the fourth year a row, the County’s Chief Financial Officer reported to the Freeholder Board at the October 15 meeting.

Freeholder Board Director Suzanne Lagay called the report, “an exceptional performance by CFO Janet Previte and the Finance Department team.” Lagay noted that the Freeholder Board’s record of controlling the budget and taxes is dependent on accurate and credible financial records.

Seven Hunterdon County Towns
Join County In Choosing
Renewable Energy Option
Seven Hunterdon County municipal governments participating in the County’s electric power shared service cooperative purchasing program have elected to follow the County’s lead in choosing the renewable energy option, while still saving budget dollars, Freeholder Board Director Suzanne Lagay reported at the October 15 meeting.

Lagay reported, “In August the Freeholder Board, following an online reverse auction for the purchase of basic generation service for electricity, approved a contract that included the so called green option. The option will see 48% of the basic generation power supplied to the County coming from renewable sources, while still saving $123,000 over the two-year period of the contract.

Now, seven communities have joined the County in contracting for their power purchases with the renewable option, at a cost savings.”

Hunterdon Senior Programs Gain More Than $770,000 With Grant Agreement Approved By Freeholders

Freeholder Sue Soloway, the Board’s liaison for the County Department of Human Services, stated, “The minimal match for these grant funds makes this one of the County’s most efficient programs, dollar for dollar, while delivering vital services for our seniors, such as the Meals on Wheels program.”
