PALISADES PARK, N.J. -- Residents of Palisades Park can get a Korean interpreter upon request for public meetings of the mayor and council, according to northjersey.com.

The population of the borough is more than 50 percent Korean and Palisades Park Mayor James Rotundo said a Korean language version of the town website is also being explored, according to northjersey.com.

Korean advocates in the borough also brought in their own equipment that offered a simultaneous interpretation of the meeting, according to northjersey.com.

There is no law in New Jersey requiring municipalities to offer interpreters, however it's a growing issue as the state diversifies, according to northjersey.com.
