MILLBURN, NJ - The township is in sound financial condition, according to the auditor who issued his annual report for last year. The Township Committee certified the audit at Tuesday's meeting.

Louis Mai told the governing body he had no comments or recommendations on the report and any issues he has brought up in previous years have been resolved.

A highlight of the report is that debt for the capital fund has been reduced by $1.4 million, Mai said. The township will also have a surplus in its parking utility, a fund specially dedicated to parking.

"I compliment you for having a good staff, and the staff for doing a good job," Mai added.

Jason Gabloff, the municipality's chief financial officer, said, "We're in good financial condition compared to other towns."

Committee member Ted Bourke said he has been impressed with the township's "ability to keep ourselves clean."

In other business, the committee introduced three ordinances for public hearing on Nov. 12. The first addresses the deposit of unsolicited printed material on private property and seeks to assist residents in taking action to prevent litter, trespass and crime within the township.

The second ordinance requires that a permit be obtained from the Superintendent of Public Works by anyone tearing up or excavating a township street and sets the fees for such permits.

The third ordinance extends the lease agreement between the township and the Millburn-Short Hills Volunteer First Aid Squad for the property at 170 Glen Ave. for another 25 years with an option for a single 25-year extension.

Also at the session, the Essex County surrogate gave his annual update. Charged with executing wills and estates, Judge Theodore N. Stephens II told the committee the Newark office plans to open a satellite one in West Orange in the near future.
