Tissues were in use at Princeton Council’s meeting on Monday evening as longtime members Lance Liverman and Heather Howard attended their final meeting before stepping down. Members of the governing body and the public also paid tribute to Susan Hoskins, the departing executive director of Princeton Senior Resource Center; and Kathy Brzezynski, retiring from her post of municipal clerk after 33 years working for the town. “Tonight is a very bittersweet night because we are saying goodbye to some people who have been fixtures at our meetings for a very long time,” said Mayor Liz Lempert. Praising Liverman and Howard, she said the town will plant two trees in their names on Witherspoon Street to honor their service. Liverman, who served for 15 years, thanked numerous people, commenting, “The future of our town rests with our youth. We must teach them how to be communityminded and care for others.” Howard, a member of the governing body for seven years, got emotional as she went down the list of people she wanted to thank. “The one constant throughout has been the tremendous people of Princeton — staff, Council, and many engaged residents who give so much of their expertise,” she said. Former Council member and Princeton Township Mayor Bernie Miller, who retired last year, said of Liverman and Howard, “They

exemplify what is right and good about public service. They did not enter public service to represent a narrow interest of a single issue or to satisfy egotistical needs. And certainly not with the expectation of financial reward. They came with the goal of improving the lives of their fellow citizens.” Others to express thanks to Liverman, Howard, and Brzezynski included Tom Parker, Kristin Appelget, Adam Bierman, and incoming Councilman Dwaine Williamson. Prior to delivering his police report, Princeton Police Chief Nicholas Sutter had his own emotional words of praise for the departing public servants. “You led the way as we reached new heights with community policing,” he said. “You taught me the importance of empathy and compassion in public policy.” In other police-related news, Council voted to approve the promotion of Lieutenant Christopher Morgan to the position of captain; and Officer James Martinez to the position of corporal. They also approved the hir-

ing of eight new officers, who will fill positions vacated by retirements. All will be sworn in on January 14. Councilman Tim Quinn, one of the members of a subcommittee reviewing the practices of the Civil Rights Commission, reported that the final recommendations were similar to the group’s last report in August. Suggestions involved changing intake materials to emphasize best practices for conflict resolution, and strengthening and clarifying the commission’s role. Ben Stenz, executive director of the Princeton Recreation Department, reported to Council on the latest round of the Mercer at Play grant, a Mercer County program that helped fund the restoration of the Mary Moss Playground. Stentz said he hopes to apply for a grant to build a playing field with artificial turf, either converting an existing field or creating a new one. The grant application would be due in July 2019. Council will hold its annual reorganization meeting on Thursday, January 3 at 5 p.m. —Anne Levin
