Mayor and Council Meeting 8 20 14

Mayor and Council Meeting 08-19-14
Once again, the audience was kept waiting while the Mayor & Council hashed out details at their private session in the Caucus Room. Scheduled to start at 7:45, the public meeting did not start until about 45 minutes later. Mayor Rich LaBarbiera did apologize to the people who remained in the Council Chambers stating the necessity to discuss some details at length.  To his credit, he curtailed Council reports and finished the meeting within ½ hour ending by 8:58 PM.

Milt Kohlmann was sworn in by the Mayor as Chief of the EMS. This is a department organized under the Paramus Police Department and Chief Kenneth Ehrenburg and Deputy Chief Robert Guidetti were on hand to welcome the new chief.

Another highlight came in the Open to the Public section when the attorney for Shamrock Estates offered  to try and negotiate peace between his client and the borough. Mayor LaBarbiera turned the discussion over to the Borough Attorney since there is pending litigation. While nothing was settled at that discussion, there is hope that it can be settled amicably. Another resident got up to discuss cell towers and LaBarbiera told him that he was afraid of the negative effect on the surrounding residential values.

Several Agenda items were changed and some pulled from the night's discussion. A new ordinance was voted on m=designating 55 Spring Valley Rd as a historic site.
