WOODLAND PARK, NJ - Mayor Keith Kazmark held his third Facebook Live Town Hall on March 5, with many residents posting their comments and questions during the forum on a variety of topics. The Mayor provided updates on a number of items.

  • The Borough was informed by the state Department of Transportation, regarding the request for additional sound barriers on Route 80, that the area will be undergoing noise studies. Kazmark noted that the same area underwent noise studies before and he anticipates it will come out affirmative. 
  • Regarding open space and parks, there will be a major project this spring and summer to update the Borough’s Open Space Master Plan. This was last done in 2007 and will be completely updated with the park improvements that have been done over the last 10 years. There are plans to host a Town Hall on Monday, April 9 at 7 p.m. at Borough Hall to gather resident input on open space planning.
  • A long awaited hook-up to town sewer and water for the Elizabeth Lane area has gone out to bid and ground is expected to be broken for that by July. A good amount of homes still have septic and are reliant on well water. “We are very happy to finally get them hooked up,” Mayor Kazmark said. 
  • On the topic of school security, the Mayor noted that the Borough and local school district have agreed to fund a second special police officer to be assigned to the schools. “School safety is paramount,” Kazmark said. In addition, a joint school safety meeting was held between town and school officials from Passaic Valley High School, Woodland Park, Little Falls and Totowa regarding procedures, response, and communications.

Passaic County Freeholders Award Proclamations to Sheriff K-9 Supporters

April 24, 2018

PASSAIC COUNTY, NJ - Last year, the goal of the Paws in the Park Committee was to raise enough funds to equip all of the K-9s in the Passaic County Sheriff’s Office with bulletproof vests. At its meeting on April 10, the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders honored three individuals with proclamations, each of whom purchased a $3,000 bulletproof vest for the K-9 unit.
