MONTVILLE, NJ – Township Clerk Leena Abaza was sworn in at the Aug. 15 Montville Township Committee meeting, in the wake of the retirement of Trudy Atkinson, who had served for 24 years.

“Being appointed Montville Township Clerk is one of the biggest accomplishments in my public service career,” Abaza told the assembly. “I’m very thankful to have this opportunity and I promise to work diligently to serve Montville Township residents - always my door will be open.”

Superintendent of Schools René Rovtar presented a slide show regarding the Board of Education’s proposed referendum, to be voted on by all residents on Sept. 26. Renovations to the schools’ roofs, restrooms, HVAC systems, media centers (excluding the recently renovated high school’s), gymnasium, all purpose rooms, air conditioning and more are addressed in the three referendum questions. The schools are receiving what amounts to a 40% discount on the work due to grants from the state, Rovtar said. If all three questions pass, the increase in taxes to the average home in Montville Township, which is $528,093, would be $100.91. For more information on the referendum, refer to the district’s website: referendum.

The NJ Department of Health conducted an evaluation of Montville Township’s Health Department and its ability to satisfy Public Health Practice Standards of Performance for Local Boards of Health in NJ, and the township’s Health Department received a score of 112 out of 120 for the year 2016.

Montville Township was named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation, one of 3,400 in the U.S. This award was achieved by having a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita, and an Arbor Day observance.

“Tree City USA recognition brings residents together and creates a source of community pride, whether it’s through volunteer engagement or public education,” said Dan Lambe, President of the Arbor Day Foundation in a press release.

The November 14 township committee meeting has been changed to the Monday, Nov. 13.

An ordinance change was introduced to place stop signs at the corner of Buckingham and Manchester. The public hearing date will be Sept. 12.

Romanzo LLC will be handling the snack bar concessions at the Community Park upon final approval by the township committee.
