HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - At the Tuesday, March 24 meeting of the Hasbrouck Heights Borough and Council Mayor Jack DeLorenzo gave the following report.
I participated in a conference call this past Saturday with the Governor's office held for all Bergen County Mayors. The discussion covered the latest orders issued. Many questions remain however it was made clear to all mayors that the order the Bergen County Executive attempted to issue was not in effect. The County Executive has no authority to issue any such order.
During this health emergency the Emergency Management Council has been meeting several times a week, practicing social distancing guidelines. These meetings are necessary due to the nature of the constantly changing environment and protocols. We are coordinating our efforts and responses as the situation changes.
We are making every effort to protect our community and conduct essential borough business. Please continue to check our borough website for updates.
Our Senior Bus has been operating on a schedule of one trip per week to shop for food and prescriptions only.
The entire Borough Hall, Library, and Public Safety building have been treated with a natural material that kills bacteria and viruses including the Corona Virus. This treatment will last 60-90 days.
Air filters in Borough Hall have all been replaced.
The senior bus has also been treated to kill any viruses and bacteria.
The borough food pantry has been operating successfully while following the social distancing guidelines.
Donations are still needed. Please contact Rob Brady to arrange drop off. Thank you to everyone who has been assisting.
Rob Brady our Senior Citizens Coordinator has been contacting our senior citizens to check on their welfare. The group has formed a phone chain and they regularly check in on each other. If any senior needs assistance please do not hesitate to contact Rob Brady or the Borough Clerk's Office.
Be sure to take a look at the HH Recreation social media site for interesting topics Rob has been creating to engage the community.
The Library has been closed but I encourage you to use their website where you can access books, and audio books.
The DPW has been operating at full capacity and will continue to do so.
Council Meetings will be held once a month in order to reduce exposure. Meeting dates will be posted.
If you need to conduct borough business please call or email the department you need to speak with. We will arrange to assist you in the best way possible during this difficult time.
I encourage everyone to practice all of the recommendations of the CDC. By doing so we can all assist in reducing exposure and lessening the impact of this virus. Please do your part and let's get through this as safely and as quickly as possible.
Please keep our Police, Fire, EMS, and medical personnel in your thoughts and prayers
God Bless Hasbrouck Heights and God Bless America
