Article on - Murphy orders N.J. flags lowered for trooper killed in off-duty crash

State and U.S. flags will fly at half-staff next Tuesday in honor of a New Jersey state trooper and Marine killed in an off-duty crash on Sunday.

Gov. Phil Murphy on Tuesday directed all state offices to lower flags on May 29 as the family of Trooper Brian McNally prepare funeral arrangements. The 30-year-old trooper was returning from weekend duty with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves when his SUV collided with a tractor-trailer.

In a statement accompanying his directive, the governor said McNally was "a loving son and brother who not only served our state, but also our country," calling him "a brave and loyal hero."

Recycling Center Cameras

Based upon a recent review of video recordings at the Essex Fells Recycling Center it has come to our attention that perhaps no one thought that anyone was watching.  However, the recycling center is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by video cameras. If you are observed dumping prohibited items at the recycling center you will receive a formal warning (along with a nice still image of the event) and be asked to reclaim those items. Starting July 1st warnings will be replaced by summonses and a public appearance in court. Leaving these non-recyclable items behind costs the Borough time, money and creates a hazardous condition. Please bring Oil, Paint, Chemicals, Batteries, etc to the Essex County Hazardous Waste Collection Day Thank You!
