As of August 4, 2020…
RFP at Riverside Way was met with 5 interested parties. Present were Stan Schrek, Shelly McGregor, Rich Wenner and me. Thank you, professionals and Council, for starting this process.
There was police presence at Riverside Way for overcrowding of beaches and to keep an eye on activity in the area. Thank you, Chief, for working with the Mayor’s Office to prevent potential bad situations.
CVS and Shammy Shine have continued quick progress to have a fast opening soon. Romark Logistics will house White Claw at Bridgepoint which is located at the former IR property is up and running which will increase our ratables for the town.
August 8th the town will have our 3rd wet down at Walters park. There will be a dunk tank and I would like to thank Jen Stone for helping to make the dunk tank possible. Also, I would like to thank all the people that donated to make this happen. This will give everyone an opportunity to dunk the Mayor and Town Council. The first two wet downs were a great success. Thank you, Police, Fire, OEM Rich Hay and recreation for making this possible.
I would like to thank Councilwoman DeGerolamo and Dave Markle for helping to clean up Riverside Way. Her dedication to the community and keeping our town healthy and safe is very much appreciated.
Concert in the Park will start Sat. August 8th at Shappell Park. The first band to kick off this event will be Video Daze a tribute to the 80’s. Please be safe and enjoy the great music.
I revisited with the Freeholder the two options of 375,000 for 1 year and 125,000.00 for 3 years. We discussed a long-term plan of 6 years to figure out a solution for the library. A compromise for the 2021 budget needs to be addressed to make this all come together so we can keep the library open.
