FH Council Meeting: Municipal Alliance, Bike Paths, Speeding Garbage Cans

Check out what's on the agenda for tonight

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.

Stop wasting money on local drug and alcohol abuse programs and plow it into specialized and advanced science and math for our schools. We are deluding ourselves if we think anything but parental guidance will help and even that isn't a sure bet!
