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].


Dear Mr. Mayor,

Thank you for all you do on behalf of our township.

Driving down Washington avenue towards Pine street is a disaster during the morning and afternoon commute. Sometimes you can wait ten minutes just to make a left turn onto Pine Street… I know there used to be for a short while a crossing guard stationed there which really helped. I’m not sure why they took him away. In any case that intersection really needs a traffic signal. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Response from Mayor Coles:

Good afternoon,

We are currently looking at improvements to that intersection. In the meantime, I will ask the chief if it is possible to have the crossing guard return.
