LAKE COMO — The borough recently was awarded $10,000 for a new sustainable energy project in coordination with the nonprofit organization Sustainable Jersey.

The project, which will most likely be presented to the council during its meeting March 19, would bring an electric-vehicle charging station to the borough, located possibly at the borough hall.

Lake Como received one of ten $10,000 grants from the Gardinier Environmental Fund, in New Jersey. The fund also offered two $30,000 grants through the state.

Councilwoman Hawley Scull was very pleased with the result.

“I’m hopeful and happy about this opportunity,” she said. “An electric-vehicle charging station will put Lake Como on the map and draw electric-vehicle owners to town, and allow them to enjoy our restaurants and businesses while they wait for their vehicle to charge.”
