CHATHAM, NJ - Maggie Grady recently attended a summer concert series performance in Madison and came away asking: Why not in Chatham?
Chatham resident Grady put that question to the members of the Borough of Chatham Council at its regular meeting held Monday night.
"Every other town has summer concert series that are well attended and people look forward to attending," Grady said. "We have the perfect venue with the Gazebo and I think it would be great."
Council member Vicki Fife responded with advice that Grady should make a proposal for the council to consider, noting that the council members "like music."
Grady plans to speak with Janice Piccolo, director of Chatham Community Services, Tuesday about forming a proposal. Grady said that she already has a few bands lined up to perform if the proposal is accepted.
"We don't want to compete with Madison or Florham Park, so maybe Thursday is a good night," Grady said.
In other business, the council unanimously adopted an amendment to its code regulating the sale of alcoholic beverages. The amendment extends the hours alcohol sale one hour from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. during the week and Saturday. The limit remains 9 p.m. for sale on Sunday.
Rising Chatham High junior Owen Truppo, 16, was appointed to the Chatham Borough Farmers' Market Advisory Committee.
