Hunterdon Freeholders Approve
Electric Power Buying
Shared Service For Towns
The Hunterdon County Freeholder Board, on February 19 th , authorized an energy services firm to establish a cost saving shared services cooperative for the purchase of electric power with the County’s municipalities.

The program will allow interested municipal governments to join with the County in an aggregate power purchase through a reverse energy auction. The program is for government power purchases, not residential, and will be organized and administered by Concord Energy Services, at no cost to the County or municipalities. 

Freeholder Board Director Suzanne Lagay stated, “Bringing on Concord Energy Services to implement a purchasing cooperative that can include Hunterdon County municipalities is the type of shared services opportunity that has real value to our taxpayers.”

Hunterdon Freeholders Support Homeowners' Call For AG Investigation of Penn East Conflicts
Hunterdon County’s Freeholder Board, at the February 19 th meeting, joined in support of a request by over sixty local homeowners in the Penn East pipeline path for an investigation of ‘significant and troubling’ potential conflicts of interest between Governor Phil Murphy’s Administration and a company that is part owner of the proposed pipeline.

Freeholder Board Deputy Director John E. Lanza said that in a letter to the New Jersey Attorney General that was copied to the Freeholders, “the homeowners affected by the pipeline are asking legitimate questions about significant and troubling potential conflicts of interest between New Jersey Resources (NJR), a part owner of the pipeline, and the Governor’s Administration that has to approve two, difficult to obtain clean water permits.”

The homeowners’ letter points out that the NJR Chief Executive Officer is Chairman of the Murphy’s Economic Development Authority and that same individual is Chairman of the Drumthwacket committee that is raising funds for the renovation of the Governor’s Mansion.

Hunterdon County Sheriff Offers Drop-Box Location For Prescription Drugs On Main Street In Flemington
Joining the effort to stop the abuse of prescription drugs, Hunterdon County Sheriff Fred W. Brown has placed a prescription drop box near the Sheriff’s office on the first-floor level of 71 Main Street in Flemington, with the aim of providing a convenient location for the public to bring any unused and/or expired medications to protect the environment and avoid the potential for abuse.

Sheriff Fred W. Brown said, “According to U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency studies, a majority of prescription drugs are obtained from medicine cabinets in the home. Children are at risk through the availability in their own homes."

"Removing that potential hazard is our number one priority. Safe disposal of prescription drugs is part of our continued effort to maintain quality of life here in Hunterdon County and we’ve made a big impact
through our drop-box program.”
