    Mayor’s Update December 2016


    Dear Resident and Business Owners,
     
    The Borough of Mendham recently dedicated a plaque to the memory of former Councilwoman Ruth H. Smith.  Ruth and her husband Fred were residents of the Borough for more than 41 years.  Councilwoman Smith became the first woman ever elected to the Mendham Borough Council in 1976 and served for almost 20 years.  Ruth was also an active member of the planning board and her husband Fred was a devoted volunteer to the Mendham Area Senior Housing Corp. (MASH).  It is fitting that we recognize Ruth’s important role in Mendham Borough history with the dedication of this plaque in her memory.
     
    The Borough has received a request for handicap parking at West Field.  Plans are in the process of being formulated that would provide a curb cut out that would allow wheelchair access to the field.  An additional parking spot or two will also be designated as handicapped spots on West Field Drive in close proximity to the curb cut out.
     
    Members of the Borough Council have asked that the Council review our present sign ordinance to decide whether or not to amend it to address some of the large Grand Opening signs that have recently appeared within the Mendham Village Shopping Center, as well as the number of sandwich board signs that have appeared on East Main Street at the foot of the Mendham High School driveway that promote school sporting events and other activities.
     
    The Borough Council has also introduced a local ordinance that would limit the placement of clothing deposit bins to nonprofit organizations.
     
    There will be a public budget workshop of the borough council in December to review a preliminary draft of the 2017 municipal budget.  As of this writing, a date and time has not been scheduled.  Please check the website in the beginning of December for a confirmed date and time.
     
    Deliberation continues with the Mayor and Council on how we want to proceed with an amendment to the Ordinance on the Promotion of the Chief of Police.  It is safe to say an amendment will not be in place by the time Chief Libertino retires on January 31, 2017.  With that being said, I will be submitting a nomination for an Interim Officer in Charge for approval by the Council so that we can ensure a smooth transition of leadership.  An appointment is expected to be confirmed very shortly. 
     
    Our Department of Public Work has prepared itself for the winter.  Our salt supply is plentiful and our trucks and plows have been outfitted for the plowing of our streets.  Please remember that no overnight parking is permitted on Borough streets until April.
     
    Also, please continue to support our local businesses, particularly during the business associations Holly Trail event in early December.
     
    Best wishes for a Happy and Healthy Holiday season.

     

    Sincerely,

    Neil Henry
    Mayor, Mendham Borough
