Our next Town Council meeting is Monday, March 12th at 7:00pm.


The Morris Lake Reservoir was ½ inch below the top of the spillway on 2.27.12.

A draft of the Annual Report is enclosed in your packet.  Please take a moment this weekend to review and let Terri know of any changes as soon as you can.

Painting is completed on the 2nd floor of the Municipal Building, and the new elevator project continues to move forward.

A friendly reminder that your CEPA certifications are due to Linda Roth asap.

I met with Dolan & Dolan this week to discuss some potential improvements to their alleyway near 1 Legal Lane.  I will keep you posted.

The review of the draft PBA & SOA contracts is underway and should be completed shortly.  We are just waiting for the union attorney to make simple typographical and content corrections.

Discussions continued on the Merriam Gateway/Townsquare project and the potential utilization of certain municipal property.  I will keep you posted.

Next week I will have a follow-up meeting on the Thorlabs ribbon cutting ceremony, tentatively scheduled for mid-day on Friday, March 23rd.  I will keep you posted.

The State of NJ, Department of Treasury, is finalizing the paperwork for the sale of the Newton Armory back to the Town.  I will keep you posted on the status of this exciting transaction.

Congratulations to Erv Lasso, who I promoted to Foreman in the Water department.  I look forward to his continued success.

Enjoy your weekend!
