Quincy Still Reeling Over Recent Crimes

New Brunswick law enforcement continue to search for suspects in the recent crime spree in the Quincy area, a relatively low-crime community. Following the armed robbery of a pizza delivery man at a Quincy Circle apartment complex on November 30, 2012, the community saw a non-fatal shooting at a the Quincy New Brunswick Apartments on Commercial Street in October of 2015.


South Brunswick police, in May of 2013, charged 21-year-old Parysh Wood with robbery for his role as leader of the three-man crew that robbed the pizza delivery man at gunpoint at the N building of the complex. The man attempted to deliver pizza to a resident, who claimed never to have ordered the pizza. When walking back to his delivery van, the three male suspects approached the man, saying that they had ordered the pizza. When going to his van to get the pizza, the suspects put a gun to his head, and stole his wallet and the pizza, before making their getaway in a dark-colored minivan. According to police, Det. Ron Seaman linked cellphone site information around the time and location of the robbery, which he then linked to Wood.


At around 9:30 p.m. on October 5, 2015, police reported that three or four shots rang out in the vicinity of Building 1 of the New Brunswick Apartments. Captain J.T. Miller of the New Brunswick Police Department reported that an “individual walked into” the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital not long after the shooting “with a non-life threatening gun shot wound.” The apartment complex, owned by a limited liability firm in North Quincy, MA, stands across the street from the Rutgers University Police Department’s headquarters.


Police continue to investigate both cases.




A Review of the Water Quality at Squaw Valley Upper Mountain

The Water Quality at Squaw Valley Upper Mountain has been the subject of intense scrutiny in recent months. Not only are residents concerned for their health safety, but daily chores have also been affected in unexpected ways. Such outcry can only be attributed to an unusually severe downpour experienced last October, which adversely affected numerous water systems in Placer County. According to verified reports, such uncommon rainstorm ultimately contributed to unexpected floods on the recently upgraded water systems installed at Gold Coast and High Camp during the summer. Based on such floods, contamination on such water systems eventually occurred within a few hours.


Once collected samples tested positive, water quality experts immediately contacted the Placer County Environmental Board and the Squaw Valley Public Service District. Immediate steps entailed consultations with various water quality experts upon which, adequate measures have been taken to safeguard citizens from potential infection. Alternatively, sufficient resources and manpower have been diverted to lower water systems to normal levels as well as disinfect affected water systems.


Ensuring Safety of the Citizens


In light of such a phenomenon, city officials have advised citizens both at Gold Coast and High Camp to exercise adequate caution and limit water consumption until normalcy is restored sooner rather than later. Ensuring the safety of people is paramount to city officials. As such they have pulled all the stops to ensure the safety of the citizens. Basic measures currently in force include the provision of free bottled drinking water and the dissemination of preventive drugs. Alternatively, city officials have also issued a closure directive to all restaurants as a preventive measure to protect all residents.


Public awareness is a vital component that primarily determines the safety levels of citizens during a disease outbreak. As such, Squaw Valley residents have been adequately informed on the recent water systems contamination, and the intended safety measures. As a potentially affected resident, you might want to adhere to such regulations immediately, lest infection catches up with you. According to water quality specialists, such guidelines are only enforceable during the grace period, after which normalcy can resume.

Williamson County Gets Traffic Solution Offers from Transportation Experts

The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) is an autonomous state organization established in 2012 to address the transportation challenges in Williamson and Travis counties. The Authority’s mission is to use innovative, multi-modal transportation alternatives that address congestion and develop transportation options that improve the quality of life and economic productivity.



Mike Heiligenstein continues to be the Executive Director of the Authority. He also works at International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association as the group’s President. He is a member of Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s Advisory Board. He has served the people of Williamson County for over two decades as a public official.



Williamson County Growth Summit



On December 15, 2016, Williamson County Growth Summit was held to discuss the transportation challenges around Austin. The panelist included Mike Heiligenstein, the Executive Director, CTRMA, Joseph Kopser, the founder of RideScout LLC, Leandre Johns, the Uber Technologies, Inc.’s Texas External Affairs Director, and Jared Ficklin of ArgoDesign. The meeting focused on the role of technology in addressing various transportation challenges.



Heiligenstein noted that Austin needs to build more and better roads to benefit from the various technological innovations like driverless cars and ridesharing apps. Most suburbs in Williamson County are facing rapid growths. He said construction of more and better roads is critical in addressing the transportation challenges in the area as a result of these growths.



Round Rock Mayor Alan McGraw wanted to know what policymakers are supposed to do to get ready for future transportation needs. Ficklin said there is a need of having a flexible building and land-use codes to meet future transportation needs. He said parking garages and roads are going to be relevant even with new innovations.



According, to Heiligenstein, the adoption of driverless cars is not high. Consequently, there is a need to enhance the capacity of roads and buses. He also noted that Austin is facing a high rate of growth that will nullify any improvement in transportation. He said Austin’s U.S. Highway 183 and State Highway 290 would need to be upgraded to 12 lanes.



Uber’s Johns emphasized the need for first- and last-mile solutions to encourage public transit. People should be provided with options to get them to the bus stop easily. Companies like Uber are providing individuals with this service.
