PARSIPPANY, NJ - Here are some other matters of busness that occured in botht he August 4th and August 20th Parsippany-Troy Hills Council meetings.

August 4th Meeting:

The meeting began with a presentation by the Stickley Mueseum at Craftsman Farms. They are celebrating their 30th anniversary, and asked the council for a a grant to improve the museum. When the meeting was opened up to the public for a discussion, a Parsippany resident, Mr. Rosenthrawl, claimed that a neighbor of his cut down nine trees near his property over the course of a few days. He requested that for an individual to cut down trees of any amount, that it would have to be documented nonetheless. The original Parsippany ordinance requires a permit only if an individual is planning to cut down five or more trees in a day. The council considered his proposal.
