In other business, the council adopted an ordinance that amends the borough code entitled "Court." The amendment calls for the addition of Morris Township to the shared court that is located in Madison. Morris Township joins Chatham, Chatham Township, Harding and Madison in the shared court, which is expected to save the borough $30,000 with the fifth member.

Two ordinances were introduced on Monday and will be up for adoption at the Nov. 25 council meeting.

Ordinance #13-22 will deal with overnight and timed parking. Basically, the ordinance will provide decals for residents in timed parking areas that will allow them to park in front of their residences without worry of being ticketed. It will also extend parking hours downtown and make them more uniform in length.

The other ordinance #13-21 amends the exceptions for front yard and building coverage requirements. The amendment would allow "porticos" or covers of front-porch entrances without having to get a variance. Council member Victoria Fife noted that all residents asking for a variance for the construction of front-porch coverings has been approved. Therefore, the ordinance updates the rules to allow for porticos.

Unlike a traditional open-end mutual fund, CEFs have a fixed number of shares available to trade. Their price is not tied to the value of the underlying portfolio. The only way the number of shares ...
