Veterans Join Unveiling
Of Signed KIA Honor Flag
A framed official Killed In Action (KIA) Honor Flag, signed by Hunterdon County Veterans who attended the County’s flag raising ceremony at the Historic Courthouse in April, was unveiled for public display at a special ceremony, at the County’s Administration Offices, on October 16th.

Joined by Veterans and many County officials, Freeholder Board Deputy Director Suzanne Lagay and Freeholder John W. King officially unveiled the Veteran autographed stark red flag that is dedicated to the memory of United States military service people killed in action, while serving the nation. 

Freeholder Deputy Director Suzanne Lagay told the Veterans in attendance, “We have framed the signed KIA Honor Flag to serve as a reminder of those that paid the ultimate price and for all other Veterans who served here in the County. We are always grateful for your service and all of the sacrifices that have been made.”

Hunterdon County Independent Audit
Comes In Clean Again
Hunterdon County financial recordkeeping received a ruling from the Independent Auditor of ‘no findings’ for the second year in a row, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Janet Previte reported at the October 16 Freeholder Board meeting.

Freeholder Board Deputy Director Suzanne Lagay stated, “There is a direct correlation between the Freeholders’ ability to cut the budget for five consecutive years, including a $1 million budget cut this year, and the maintenance of accurate financial records. Good records create confidence in budget decision making.

The CFO, her staff, and all our Departments are to be congratulated for our second consecutive clean bill of health.”
