Rosenthal addressed the council with her thanks, but spoke about the world without cancer. She had the council close their eyes and just imagine a world without the devastating effects of cancer.

"Can we see a world without cancer? Is it possible? Thanks to the Denville Town Council, we might just be one step closer," Rosenthal said.

The town is also ahead when it comes to their 2016 municipal budget. After snowstorm Jonas forced the council to cancel their first budget hearing of the season, the council caught up and heard every budget from the fire department, police department, DPW, library, and the general overall budget with time to spare in the budget season. 

The police department's capital requests came in around $274,000. The Denville Fire Department's capital budget requests $207,500. The Department of Public Works budget is the highest, coming in at $393,000.00 for the year 2016. 

As a result of the approval of the introduction of the 2016 municipal budget, the remaining budget hearings scheduled for March 3, March 7, and March 10 have been cancelled.

The council and Denville Township's Cheif Financial Officer Michael Guarino have set a date for the public hearing of the budget for the April 5 town council meeting. The next meeting for the Denville Town Council will be on March 8 at 7:30 p.m.
