HASBROUCK HEIGHTS -  Re-allowing the Hasbrouck Heights Pistol Club to resume shooting at the range was among other items of business completed at Tuesday evening’s Borough of Hasbrouck Heights Council Meeting.   

The group had not been allowed to shoot since June, due to issues with spent shells bouncing out of the collection area at the range.  However, the range has dealt with that issue, at least in the area where the Hasbrouck Heights Pistol Club shoots and requested to be allowed to resume shooting.

According to Police Chief Michael Colaneri Sr., there was no threat to public safety, and he was fine with them resuming shooting at the range.   After a unanimous vote by the council, the request was approved.

Other Notes:

As part of the consent agenda, the Council passed a resolution expressing opposition to legislative proposals regarding the Open Public Meetings Act and the Open Public Records Act, strongly urging the bills not be passed. According to the resolution, the legislation to expand the Open Records Act fails to adequately protect taxpayers, municipalities and municipal clerk from abusive, harassing and purposefully confrontational individuals who submit voluminous request for no legitimate reason.

Additionally, the legislation would also expand the Open Public Meeting Act to create impractical and burdensome requirements with respect to subcommittees and working groups.  The bills would also impose additional responsibilities on municipal clerks without providing additional resources.

Both bills would impose financial burdens on municipalities that would not be offset by any revenue sources except local property taxes.

An additional  $41,601.40 was added to the original contract between the Borough of Hasbrouck Heights and Cross Roads Pavement Maintenance, for Change Order #1 in connection with the 2016 Road Program.

Approved licenses to conduct a raffle or Bingo for the Concerned Parents of Corpus Christi Church School, and Corpus Christi Church.

For All The Dollars: The Great Silence, dir. Sergio Corbucci
