HASBROUCK  HEIGHTS, NJ - It was anything but “business as usual” as the Borough of Hasbrouck Heights Mayor and Council met Tuesday evening.  

Council members in attendance were spaced across the Council dais in accordance to the “social distancing guidelines” prescribed by the Governor as part of Emergency Directive. Three council members, Justin DiPisa, Russell Lipari and Christopher Hillmann, dialed into the meeting via a conference call, along with members of the public. 

Borough Attorney Richard Malagiere, Chief of Police Michael Colaneri Sr and Supervisor of the Department of Public Works William Spindler, along with the media, were assigned specific seats in the audience. Despite some initial technical hiccups, the meeting was able to be completed.
