Hunterdon County Raises New KIA Honor Flag At Historic Courthouse
Special Recognition For Thirteen Troops
Killed In Kabul August 26th
At a solemn ceremony that included Veterans, Hunterdon County officials refreshed the County’s KIA Honor Flag in front of the Historic Courthouse in Flemington on Thursday, with a special recognition for the thirteen members of the military killed at the airport gate in Kabul, Afghanistan on August 26th.
Commissioner Zach Rich, who serves as the Board’s Veterans liaison, said in remarks, “Those thirteen brave Americans were doing their duty as called upon, and they join the pantheon of all the many others killed in action throughout the years; the minutemen, the rough riders, the doughboys, the greatest generation, those at the Chosin Reservoir, in Vietnam, Lebanon, the Persian Gulf, Somalia, Iraq, and so many other places.
We honor all their memories, and we know their loss is the high price of American freedom.”

 Hunterdon County Planning Board Hosts Virtual “Breakfast Talk” Meeting About Recycling Rules And Proper Disposal Methods
The Hunterdon County Planning Board held a virtual “Breakfast Talk” about Recycling for local municipal officials, discussing upcoming changes and proper disposal, and shared a video of the recycling process at a local recycling plant, Hunterdon County Commissioner Shaun C. Van Doren reported at the October 5th Board meeting.

Commissioner Van Doren, a County Planning Board member, said, “Listening to staff who work at the Transfer Station discussing the importance of proper disposal of recyclable items, and how unique items can be recycled, was encouraging.

What stood out is that county staff care about what is being done and take precautions to make sure nothing harms the environment or residents. The Planning Board’s breakfast talks for municipal officials are held several times a year, are well received, and always offer valuable information.”
