WOOD-RIDGE, NJ - The Wood-Ridge Mayor and Council passed three ordinances on final reading at Wednesday evening's meeting in Council Chambers. Council president Phil Romero led the meeting, with Borough Administrator Christopher Eilert, Borough Clerk, and Councilman Dominick Azzolini in chambers. The rest of the council attended by conference call.
Bond Ordinance 2020-12 authorized the 2020 Road Resurfacing program in the borough for $1,750,000, and authorized the issuance of bonds for the program. According to Eilert, Burma Road will be resurfaced, beginning at the end of July.
Ordinance 2020-13 dealt with construction noise in the borough. It banned the work by contractors on Sunday, and set a work curfew of 4pm on Saturdays.
Ordinance 2020-14 was an amendment to the Police Chapter, establishing Class 3 Law Enforcement Officers in the borough, which can then be hired and work in the school district.
Romero praised the borough DPW Department for the "extra effort in cleaning the parks and athletic fields...for an outstanding job." Eilert added that "keeping up a seven day a week schedule (cleaning) is challenging."
