Totowa Will See 5 Percent Hike In Passaic Valley Water Commission Rates

January 11, 2017 at 9:42 AM

TOTOWA, NJ – Mayor John Coiro expressed frustratation at the Jan. 10 council meeting after finding out that the Passaic Valley Water Commission advised Totowa that its water rates will increase again by 5 percent. 

“I’m disappointed that municipalities are held to a 2 percent cap, but the commission doesn’t have to adhere to it,” he said. “This is something we must absorb and it has been going up recently.” 

The council passed a resolution stating that the treasurer is authorized to issue senior citizen and veterans property owners a deduction refund. Coiro added that in the first year, the town will issue the refund, but in the years following, it will be tax reduced and noted that the funds come from the state.

Also passed was a resolution stating that the borough received $3,200 through the New Jersey Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Fund grant program for the 2016 fiscal year. 

The council introduced the first reading and advertisement for public hearing, an ordinance fixing the annual salaries and wages of the officials, employees, and the appointees of the Borough of Totowa. 

Councilwoman Debbie Andriani said that the Totowa Library will be holding its annual Italian family style dinner at the Brownstone. Tickets are $55 and can be purchased at the library.  

Councilman William Bucher thanked the Department of Public Works for the great job they did snow plowing this weekend after more snow than expected fell.

January 12, 2017

As Donald Trump’s inauguration draws near, a number of groups are planning various events and rallies – perhaps most notably, the Women’s March on Washington.
