MONTVILLE, NJ – At the Oct. 24 meeting, Montville Township Committee members praised and thanked the efforts of administration and committee chairs Deputy Mayor Frank Cooney and Committee Member Rich Cook for the Oct. 15 celebration of Montville Day held at the amphitheater. (Read Mayor Jim Sandham’s letter to TAPinto Montville here: Huge Success.)

After the positive reception that township residents gave this year’s Montville Day, officials are already working on plans for next year’s festivities. Township Administrator Victor Canning announced the date for next year’s Montville Township Day as Sunday, Oct. 14.

Canning also announced that the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs – Division of Local Government Services had completed its audit of Montville Township’s budgetary practices and had deemed that because of administration’s practices, plus those of all three fire districts, our state aid will not be impacted.

Township Attorney Fred Semrau announced that the litigation that 107 Changebridge LLC had brought against the township had been decided favorably to the township. The owners of the stone house near the corner of Changebridge and Church Lane wished to demolish the house, but their application was refused by the Planning Board. They filed suit with the state. Semrau stated that parts of the decision will return to the Planning Board for clarification. Read about the original demolition rejection here: 107 Changebridge.

Boy Scout Rahul Menon presented his Eagle project proposal to the township committee. He wishes to supervise a team in the installation of a brick patio, and the extension of another brick patio, at the Montville Township Animal Shelter.

“The installation of the patio will help beautify the animal shelter and may encourage people to adopt pets,” Menon said. “Plus, highlighting this area will help promote the brick-buying fundraising project.”

Menon will be conducting the project the weekend of Nov. 11-12, with some help from the Department of Public Works. Menon is a junior at Morris County School of Technology and a member of Montville’s Troop 74.  

The aquifer level has decreased by one foot due to equipment repairs and well changes. Officials are confident that with the well management they are utilizing, the level will stabilize and increase, particularly since cold weather means less water demand. (Read the summary of the situation here.)

Aamer Hasan Syed was appointed to the Residents with Disabilities Advisory Committee. Sandham said the Muslim community had come to him to ask how to become more involved in Montville Township, and he had encouraged the group to volunteer for the various boards and committees in town. On Sept. 12, Kulsum Aamer was sworn in to the Affordable Housing Committee and Gul Khan was sworn in to the Open Space Committee.

Deputy Mayor Frank Cooney announced that the Montville Township Committee reorganization meeting will be on Jan. 1 as usual, and since long-term committee members Deb Nielson and Jim Sandham will be stepping down, there will be a recognition party at 6 p.m. at the Valhalla Club.
