    Mayor’s Update April 2016

    Dear Residents & Business Owners:
     
         The Mayor and Council introduced an amendment to the ordinance concerning license fee renewals for Retail Food Handling Establishments.  Our local retail food establishments have been very slow to pay this nominal fee.  Payment was always required by January 31 but under the proposed ordinance, any license renewal payment not received by February 1 shall be deemed late and a late fee equal to the renewal fee shall be imposed.  Any license renewal payment not received within thirty days of the effective date of this ordinance amendment shall be deemed late and a late fee equal to the renewal fee shall be imposed.  The result of this action should help speed up the receipt of these fees.
         In other business, the Mayor and Council introduced a new ordinance that would amend the Borough’s construction fees under the building, plumbing, electrical and fire sub code fees sub-section.
         Copies of both these ordinances, complete with amendments, can be secured through Borough Clerk, Margot Kay.
         A second round of bids were received for the Talmage Road paving project and were $71,000 lower than the first round of bids.  The first bids exceeded the amount that had been originally budgeted for this project.
         We have set the March 21 Borough Council Meeting as our target to introduce the 2016 municipal budget and capital ordinance.  Public hearings on both will be set for April.  Please check the Borough website for the exact dates.
         The administration has identified several solid candidates for our two open positions in the police department, zoning code enforcement officer and part-time secretary.  If all goes well, both positions should be filled within the next 30 days.
          Matrix LLC, the consulting firm who performed an efficiency evaluation for our police department, has submitted its report.  The Sub-committee on Public Safety will be making a recommendation to the full council on how to implement the suggestions in the Matrix study.
          Please join me in congratulating Borough Resident Brett Ressler who was recently appointed new head football coach at Mendham High School.  Brett has been the Assistant Coach for Strength and Conditioning for the football program and is a Physical Education teacher at the school.  I recently met with him to hear his vision for the future of the high school’s football program.  Of his many goals, building additional community spirit for the school and the football program are at the top of the list.
          The Little League season has started.  Stop by Borough Park and catch a game this spring.

     


    Sincerely,
     
    Mayor Neil Henry
