At the start of the year, while many are getting organized for the months ahead, the Township of Livingston reminds residents to make sure they are receiving critical and useful local information.

From local emergency notifications to news, meetings, and events of interest, the Township provides several ways for residents to get the information they need. Through the Township website, residents can elect to receive alerts by phone/text message and/or email, which makes staying up to date convenient, useful, and timely.
