Town Council Approves Ordinance To Allow Jersey Vineyards At Farmers Market


DENVILLE, NJ-- The Denville Town Council met on Sept. 1 for a regularly scheduled meeting. No ceremonial matters took place so the council got right down to business.

Council liason reports showed progress being made in regards to the walking path around Muriel Hepner Park. Councilwoman Stephanie Lyden hopes to have a date set for the ribbon cutting ceremony soon. A couple more days of work are needed before the walking path is officially open and ready for use.

Council President Chris Golinski took time out during his liason report to invite the public out on Sept. 26 at 4:30 p.m. to inspect the fire department companies. The mayor and council inspect the companies every year. He encouraged the public to get out and thank the companies for the hard work that they do to keep Denville safe and fire free.

The Mayor gave an update on the newly opened field at Veteran's Memorial Park. The first practice took place on the new turf field on Sept. 2 and the first game will be played on Sept. 4 with a matchup played by the Denville Challenger Soccer team. 

An update was also provided on the tax revaluation. Many inspectors are out and about in the township from Appraisal Systems. These assesors are out to inspecting the inside and outside of all properties in the township. The township was ordered by the county to undergo a revaluation earlier this year. Council President Golinski reminded residents that it is their right to let the appraiser inside or not inside of their homes. If they are not let in, the house will be assesed at a ptentially higher value.

The township has also been getting numerous complaints about garbage pickup. A new form has been uploaded to the Denville website that will enable residents to fill it out and have it go directly to the Public Works department. The township also reminds residents that garbage pick up will not be on Monday due to the Labor Day holiday. Instead, Monday's garbage pickup will take place on Tuesday, and Tuesday scheduled pickups will take place on Wednesday.

A highlight from this meeting was the approval of ordinance 17-15. The ordiance that was adopted will allow the Denville Farmer's Market to bring in vineyards from the state of New Jersey to provide wine samples to their customers. The vineyards will also have their wines for sale for off property consumption. The meeting also provided the acceptance of federal aid for the Broadway streetscaping project that will complete phase I and phase II. 

The council also approved various applications for raffle licenses, refunds due to tax sale certificate redemptions, and the selling of no longer needed municipal equipment. The next scheduled meeting of the Town Council will be on Sept. 15 at Town Hall. The meeting will begin at 7:30 and all are invited to attend and have their voice be heard.
