The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].


Hi scoop. I really hope you post my question 🙂

Recently a sign went up that’s the park is being torn down. Neighbors will all wondering, is it getting rebuilt? What’s the reason? Did the township sell the land? If yes, can we (Neighborhood) buy it?

Thanks so much for your forum!!!

Response from Mayor Coles:

Good morning. The playground is being replaced with new equipment. We felt it best to replace the existing equipment, since parts we’re getting difficult to locate. The playground will be there for many years to come.

Thanks for writing and I apologize if the wording of the sign led to any confusion to anxiety.

Take care
