If you have something to say or want to hear about municipal business on the agenda in , tonight’s the night this month.
Lacking a quorum at the last minute, the borough council meeting was switched from Monday to tonight at Borough Hall at 6 p.m., rather than the usual 7:30. And, if you’re interested, the Planning Board meets at 7 p.m.
There are a few items on the agenda tonight that may pique residents’ interest.
Here’s a sneak peek preview:
• Fair Haven, as the lead agency in the new Rumson-Fair Haven Municipal Alliance to Prevent Drug and Alcohol Abuse, is expected to appoint, by resolution, a program coordinator, who will source grants and, well, coordinate the program.
A resolution establishing the interlocal agreement for the Alliance is also on the agenda.
• The borough is in the process of getting a plan underway to incorporate bike paths into the StreetScape program by “establishing and adopting,” via resolution, a Complete Streets policy. Such a policy will set in motion the parameters for making the streets more cyclist- and pedestrian-friendly.
• An ordinance is slated for introduction to create the title of director of Engineering and Public Works and assistant director. There is a resolution on the agenda to hire Richard Gardella as the director.
• A resolution is also on the agenda to authorize tailgating for the Tour de Fair Haven bicycle run in August.
• Christopher Rumph has also submitted a letter of resignation from the Shade Tree Commission.
On a final note, there’s a strange item on the agenda calling for discussion of “Garbage Can Speed Reminders.” Who knew there was a problem with garbage cans speeding through town here? Next time you see one, let us know.
