    Mayor’s Update May 2015


    Dear Residents & Business Owners:

          Work on the water main repairs on West Main Street has progressed nicely thanks to an open line of communication with New Jersey American Water and the Montana Construction Company.  The work should be wrapped up in the very near future.
          As this is being written, the Borough Council is planning to hold final discussions on the 2015 budget at its April 20 council meeting.  This will allow for a public hearing on May 18.  While day-to-day operating expenses have remained flat, there have been increased health care and pension costs requiring a rise in municipal taxes.  The council is also considering 2015 capital project requests which include a new ambulance, additional road paving and a new roof and other overdue repairs at the fire house.  Please check the Borough website for information on the budget and join us on May 18 or email if you have any questions.
         The Mayor and council continue to work towards finalizing a new contract with the PBA.  The PBA delegate and the council’s bargaining team are negotiating a fair settlement which should result in significant savings to the taxpayer.
          Administrator Merkt has reviewed a new salary ordinance which was based on competitive salaries for similar positions in surrounding towns.  Updating this ordinance is long overdue and I am happy to say a new ordinance should be in place by June.
         I have invited former Councilman Garubo to serve as the Grand Marshal for our 2015 Labor Day Parade.  
         I hope you are enjoying this lovely spring weather and wish you all the best this season.
     
                                                    Sincerely,
     
                                                    Neil Henry, Mayor
