Grossman, the IBID’s Executive Director. “With restaurant license renewals due by January 31, we thought it was important to remind business owners about the change to the online filing process and to provide support with completing the online application process.”

A dream inspired Victoria Villalba’s concept for her submission to the Ironbound Business Improvement District’s 14th Annual Anti-Litter Poster Contest. His concern about seeing people trip over litter on a local sidewalk motivated Miguel Carrera’s contest entry.

Their hard work and creativity helped Hawkins Street School win first place for the fifth to eighth grade and the Wilson Avenue School win first place for the first to fourth grade, respectively. Dozens of posters were entered by students from Ironbound elementary and middle schools participating in the contest which draws attention to the IBID’s “Let’s Work Together to Keep the Ironbound Clean” quality of life initiative.
