County To Combine S.L.A.P With MusicFest To Form SLAPFest

May 1, 2012

Due to fiscal constraints, the S.L.A.P. program which has convicted criminals clean up roadsides and parks throughout the county will be ending June 1st. Previously the county freeholders also canceled the MusicFest 2012 for the same reason.

Now they’ve come up with a combination of the 2 and will hold their first ever SLAPFest which will have residents voting on the best criminal clean-up crews ‘American Idol’ style. Contests will include “Chain Gang Singing”, “Landscaping Design”, and “Sand Bag Sculpturing”. The crew who wins gets an early release. Votes will be charged $1 each and will go the help the freeholders with their finances.

“I didn’t know why they didn’t do this before,” exclaimed one excited resident, “I honestly didn’t know what freeholders did so this would be a step in the right direction. At least they’ll be doing something.”

There was no comment from the County offices for fear of an OPRA lawsuit from the Union County Watchdogs.
