“I hope the fact that the planning board meeting was on TV, the show that John [Laezza] and I had… and last month’s council meeting has the township in understanding whats going on,” said Mayor Sal Bonaccorso.  He added that while they all may not have liked the situation, they did their best to do what was right for the town.

“Thank you for all the hard work that a lot of people put in,” said Bonaccorso.

The Council also introduced a proposed ordinance that establishes standards for the registration and maintenance of vacant and abandoned residential properties in foreclosure by creditors.  This ordinance is on the agenda for the June 5 workshop meeting.

Acting as the ABC Board, the council also approved a resolution the transfers an ABC License to the new owners of Tarantella’s Restaurant.

Councilman Al Barr reminded the town of the upcoming Memorial Day Parade.  “I want to thank all the participants and all the spectators,” said Barr.

Scott McCabe shared plans for the celebration of the 325th Anniversary of the Dr. Wm. Robinson House the weekend of June 3 and 4. “It is one of the oldest houses still standing in the State of New Jersey,” said McCabe. 

McCabe said the public is invited to come tour the house, watch a Civil War reenactment, catch a glimpse into the life of a pirate, and enjoy a Native American dance troupe.

Councilman Brian Toal urged everyone to go and check out the celebration.
