As you travel north along Route 9 from Lakewood into Howell Township, you might have noticed a new billboard. In a joint venture between the Howell Municipal Alliance and the Howell Township Police Department, two Howell police officers greet motorists and would-be drug traffickers and users.
“Thinking of bringing drugs into Howell Township? Think again,” the billboard reads.
The billboard lies between the Riccardi Brothers paint store and Federicci’s, just about 1,000 feet north of the Lakewood-Howell border.
