Neighbors Helping Neighbors – Lakewood and Howell Townships Join in a Spirit of Cooperation
In a spirit of cooperation with its neighbor Howell Township, Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles and Township Manager Patrick Donnelly have arranged to have its Department of Public Works sanitize the parks and playgrounds in Howell so all citizens can enjoy the public facilities.
Lakewood Public Works, under the supervision of director Phil Roux, has been sanitizing its own buildings, parks, playgrounds, etc., and offered to help Howell so they can safely reopen and all citizens can feel comfortable using the facilities.
According to Paul Novello, director of Public Works for Howell, Lakewood will be looking at six Howell parks and will assist in sanitizing them. Of course, everyone is encouraged to maintain social distancing and wear masks.
