IN THE DRIVING RAIN: This car made waves on
Province Line Road Saturday as the region was swamped with a powerful
storm that brought as much as three inches of rain to the area.
Parts of the region, including Trenton, sustained major flooding,
but Princeton Borough and Township incurred only minor flooding
and some road closings.
This week, Mercer County will be the site of simulated
terror attacks and mock biological attacks as part of a statewide
exercise that tests the efficacy of the regional terror response
system and domestic security in general.
Citing "major increases" in infrastructural
improvements, salaries and benefits, and utility costs, Princeton
Township Committee Monday night unanimously introduced its $29.8
million budget for 2005 an estimate that was repeatedly
deemed a "work-in-progress."
The Princeton Regional Board of Education unanimously
passed its $67 million budget for the 2005-2006 school year following
a public hearing last week. The budget will now be presented to
residents for a vote on April 19.
