WESTWOOD, N.J. -- Westwood and Emerson have, as neighbors, experienced issues with flooding, and they are trying to work on the issues cooperatively, The Record reported.

Emerson has already applied for a grant from the state Department of Transportation's Local Aid Infrastructure Fund, and the Westwood Council voted Tuesday to apply for a grant from that fund as well, according to The Record.

"Hopefully we are able to come up with a solution," said Westwood Mayor John Birkner Jr., as reported by The Record. "It's traumatic over there; water has wiped out yards and pools. I've seen it, it's devastating. We stand with Emerson in trying to find a fix."
