Mayor Vic Sordillo helps rescue lost dog panicked by traffic.
A small and very cold Poodle mix dog was rescued by Mayor Victor Sordillo, Friday afternoon—who helped get the dog reunited with her owners. Mayor Sordillo saw the dog, wearing a pink sweater with the word "Diva," running in traffic on Mt. Horeb Road near Har Shalom Temple. When he stopped his car and opened the door, the frightened dog immediately jumped into his car. "Diva" was taken to the police headquarters while Mayor Sordillo scrambled to get the word out to find the dog's owner. Shortly after, it was reported the dog and her owners were reunited. "If you saw this cute little dog, you would expect her owners to be panicking," Mayor Sordillo said.

Township Committee wants budget cut further before being finalized.
Township Administrator Mark Krane will need to sharpen his pencils—and possibly consult his dictionary—after the Township Committee reviewed current budget plans for the 2012 year that already reduces the amount to be raised in taxes by about $50,000, Thursday at the municipal complex. Despite the reduced total to be collected, many property owners would see an increase in their property tax bill for municipal taxes because of increased assessments—Krane said the owner of a property assessed at the township average of $625,000 would see a $10 increase. Last year, the average property assessment was $612,000. That apparent contradiction between lower total tax collection and higher taxes for the "average property" troubled Committeeman Vic …

Experts could help explain benefits for which homeowners may qualify.
Navigating homeowner insurance policies isn't always easy, and in the coming weeks, Warren residents may have a chance to consult with experts on what benefits they may be due from the storms in August and October. According to Townshop Committeeman Vic Sordillo, the township Office of Emergency Management is working on organizing a workshop for homeowners to discuss what provisions their insurance policies may offer. The session is planned for sometime in the first quarter of 2012. "There's a tremendous demand for that," Sordillo said at the Dec. 8 Township Committee meeting. "The standard homeowner's policy is very misunderstood." Sordillo, who works for Warren-based Chubb Insurance, noted the township "has residents with expertise in …
