Morris County has launched a website to inform and assist municipal officials and property owners as they begin the process of reviewing the flood hazard maps provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Superior Court Judge Stephan Hansbury directed the Morristown & Erie Railway to work with Morris County to come up with viable safety and emergency response plans to deal with  rail cars filled with liquefied petroleum gas (propane or butane) that are being stored on the tracks of the county owned High Bridge Rail Line in western Morris County.

The judge also issued a temporary halt to expansion of the number of rail cars stored at that site as of Friday, June 10, with 18 cars already there to remain until a scheduled June 20 follow-up court hearing in Morristown.

Officials from the county and Attorneys for Morris County, Mt. Olive and Washington Township met for several hours with representatives from M&E Railways Friday to discuss possible safety measures that should be put in place in connection with the parked rail cars. Following those discussions, Judge Hansbury directed the two sides to continue that dialogue and urged them to come back in 10 days with a safety plan. 

 

 

Our forests are threatened by nonnative insects that can kill large numbers of trees.  Three recently introduced insects - emerald ash borer, Asian longhorned beetle, and Sirex woodwasps - are wood-infesting species that can be transported long distances in firewood.  Once transported to new areas, these insects can become established and kill local trees.  Please stop the spread!

  • Leave firewood at home - do not transport it to campgrounds or parks
  • Use firewood from local sources
  • If you have moved firewood, burn all of it before leaving your campsite
