The Westfield Leader and The Scotch Plains – Fanwood TIMES A WATCHUNG COMMUNICATIONS, INC. PUBLICATION ShopRite Wines & Spirits Businesses Can Apply For Low-Interest Loans COUNTY – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders reminds eligible business owners and managers that they can still apply for a lowinterest loan to help recover from the impacts of Superstorm Sandy. The loans are offered through the non-profit Union County Economic Development Corporation (UCEDC). “This loan program was an exemplary recovery initiative when UCEDC first launched it in response to Superstorm Sandy, and I’d like to thank the organization and its president, Maureen Tinen, along with the private sector partner, Investors Bank, for continuing to make this valuable service available to our small business community,” Freeholder Chairman Mohamed Jalloh said. UCEDC’s Business Growth Working Capital loan program offers qualified small businesses up to $25,000 at 2 percent for five years with no collateral requirements. The loan can be used as general working capital, to purchase new equipment or inventory, for renovation or expansion, or to retire more expensive debt. The program is designed to be easily accessible to small businesses that are still trying to get back up to speed after a Sandy-related setback. Along with the 2 percent interest rate and no collateral requirement, the program has no prepayment penalties, application fees, or processing fees. For businesses with larger needs, UCEDC continues to provide loans of up to $250,000 with conventional interest rates and processing periods. For more information, call UCEDC at (908) 527-1166 or visit ucedc.com. Muñoz Lauds Report On Waste at Alliance TRENTON – Assemblywoman Nancy F. Muñoz (R-21st, Summit) commended the Office of the State Comptroller last week for uncovering the wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars by Union County to a non-profit agency. The comptroller issued a report showing the county issued no-bid contracts to the Union County Alliance (UCA) between 2008 and 2011. The county gave UCA $1.5 million over a four-year period to market economic development. The only material produced by UCA was the publication of a newsletter that was issued twice a year. Previously, the newsletter had been published by the county. “Union County taxpayers are picking up an expensive tab and getting little in return,” Asw. Munoz said. “The comptroller did a lot of digging and research to find the lack of accountability and oversight that exists. Homeowners and families are challenged each day to ensure they receive the services they pay for. The county must implement the best practice recommendations made by the comptroller to improve transparency and save wasted tax dollars. “More oversight is needed to make certain competitive bidding for contracts is open and fair,” Asw. Muñoz continued. “Union County residents pay more than their fair share in property taxes. They are entitled to know that expenditures are made prudently and are justified.” Prices effective: 1/28/15 - 2/24/15 Sunrise Cellars the Wine Department at VISIT OUR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED WINE CELLAR The items below are on Sale!

Leonard Lance’s (R-7th) request that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) hold a public hearing in the county regarding the proposed PennEast Natural Gas Pipeline. State Republican Senators Kip Bateman and Mike Doherty, Assembly Republicans John DiMaio, Erik Peterson, Donna Simon and Jack Ciattarelli, were joined by county freeholders and mayors asking FERC to add Hunterdon County to the list of sites where a public discussion will take place. Last week, FERC announced it will hold five public meetings on the impact of the 100-mile pipeline which will start in Luzerne County, Pa. and extend through Holland, Alexandria, Kingwood, Delaware and West Amwell townships. The only meeting in New Jersey is scheduled at the College of New Jersey, in Mercer County. Officials agreed with Mr. Lance that county residents should have the opportunity to voice their concerns about the pipeline’s impact on the environment and quality of life at a sixth meeting in the county. The approval process is expected to take several years with PennEast indicating it expects construction to begin in late 2017.
