NEWARK - A police substation has reopened in Newark's South Ward.

The station stands near the intersection of Bergen Street and Lyons Avenue in the city's Weequahic section.

After a series of community meetings, the Newark City Council allocated budget funding to allow the mini-precinct to stay open until 2014.

The council, along with the Office of the Business Administrator, has been searching for funds to reopen more mini-stations around the city.
