Clark Council Adopts Road Improvement Bond Ordinance at Monday Meeting

July 22, 2014 at 10:00 PM

CLARK, NJ – The Town Council last night adopted a bond ordinance authorizing the funding of the municipal contribution to road improvements at the intersection of Raritan Road and Central Avenue.  $500,000 represents the township’s share of the improvements needed in connection to the Clark Commons shopping center project.

Traffic flow through the area will be enhanced through the creation of additional turn lanes and the installation of a traffic signal at the shopping center entrance.  Clark Business Administrator John Laezza said that lights at Central Avenue, the Shop-Rite entrance on Raritan Road and the Clark Commons entrance will be carefully timed to ensure a continuous flow of traffic through the area.

The council also passed a resolution authorizing the Mayor and Township Clerk to execute a developer’s agreement with Clark Commons LLC.

In response to questions about safety at development sites, Mayor Bonaccorso reminded residents that the areas are private property and should be avoided.  He will follow up with the township’s code enforcement official, Mike Khoda, to determine fencing requirements at the sites.

Ordinances regarding bulky waste disposal, outside police details, and fences on corner properties were introduced.  Public hearing on the three ordinances will be held on August 18, 2014.

Repairs are being done to the municipal building as a result of long term water damage.  Exterior bricks along the gymnasium wall are being removed and replaced with stucco.  Stucco was a less expensive alternative to replacing the original brickwork.

Resident Delia Collins addressed the council in regards to recent news reports exposing conditions at the Linden Animal Control Shelter.  Clark’s current contract with the center for animal control services expires on December 31, 2014.  Collins urged the council to consider other options before renewing the contract with Linden.   She also encouraged residents to “chip, leash, and collar” pets to help in the return of lost pets to their owners.
