MONTVILLE, NJ – Rabbi Mark Finkel joined the Montville Township Committee at its Feb. 25 meeting to declare April 19 through April 25 as Days of Remembrance in memory of the victims of the Holocaust and in honor of the survivors as well as the rescuers and liberators.
Finkel and the Pine Brook Jewish Center were given a proclamation commemorating the committee’s commitment to remembering the groups; the proclamation stated in part that the Nazis annihilated six million Jews, plus millions more Roma, people with disabilities, Poles, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Soviet prisoners of war and political dissidents.
“We, the people of Montville Township should always remember the terrible events of the Holocaust and remain vigilant against hatred, persecution, and tyranny, […] and we should work to promote human dignity and confront hate whenever and wherever it occurs,” the proclamation stated in part.
The township is in negotiations with Parsippany regarding sewer allotments, which Parsippany provides – the current agreement is 52 years old. This will most likely result in an increase in rates by July, but Township Administrator Victor Canning pointed out that rates have not increased since 2010, and during that time a six-month break was granted and rates were reduced.
The township is interested in implementing a 20- to 40-year water tank preventive maintenance program for the township’s water storage tanks that includes complete tank renovations, followed by maintenance, inspections, and necessary repairs. The request for proposal for engineering design proposals was expected to be completed by township water and sewer engineer in February and the project is expected to start this year.
The township is sending out RFPs for repairs, road resurfacing, and drainage upgrades for Waughaw Road.
