HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The 2020 Hasbrouck Heights Municipal Budget was passed along party lines Wednesday night at the meeting of the Hasbrouck Heights Mayor and Council.  The meeting was conducted online via Zoom.  Mayor Jack DeLorenzo announced that the July meeting will be held in Council Chambers.

Democratic Councilmen Christopher Hillmann and Steven Reyngoudt voted against the budget as well as an ordinance establishing a cap bank.  A “cap bank” allows the governing body to “bank” the permission it was given to spend a certain amount of money in one year, but which was not actually spent, for use in subsequent years.

Republican Councilmen Justin DiPisa, Ron Kistner, Russell Lipari and Councilwoman Josephine Ciocia voted to approve both measures.

The budget, which can be found on the Hasbrouck Heights website, would raise taxes, for the municipal portion approximately $114 according Hasbrouck Heights Borough Administrator Michael Kronyak. He noted that does not include the County and School Budgets, which he is not responsible for, but gets passed through local tax bills.

Councilman DiPisa was appointed the Hasbrouck Heights Municipal Representative to the Bergen County Community Development Regional Committee, with Councilman Kistner as the Alternate Representative.  Hasbrouck Heights Recreation Director Rob Brady was appointed as Hasbrouck Heights’ representative to the Open Space Trust Municipal Program Regional Committee.
