Wanting to focus its efforts on issues of greatest concern to residents, the Sussex-Wantage Consolidation Study Commission has scheduled a public forum to hear residents' views on the most important issues to be addressed during the consolidation study.
Residents of the two communities are invited to attend the forum on Wednesday, October 8, at High Point High School Auditorium, beginning at 7 PM. At the meeting, residents may share their thoughts with the commission members about issues that they feel might be important to the ongoing study.
The Joint Consolidation Commission of Wantage Township and Sussex Boro was formed by the government bodies of the two municipalities. It will study and recommend whether the two communities should become one. If the commission arrives at a recommendation for consolidation, then a vote would be scheduled with the two municipalities to make a final determination for jointure.
With staff assistance and a grant from the NJ Department of Community Affairs, the commission has hired a consultant to study and report on various aspects of the consolidation issue. Your input is welcomed. Please plan on attending the meeting on October 8.
