WOODLAND PARK, NJ - The Borough of Woodland Park saluted Felix Esposito last night following his March 31 retirement.

Esposito worked for the borough as a code enforcement officer for 28 1/2 years - from  Aug. 15, 1988 to March 31, 2017. He was presented with a plaque from the town at the meeting, with his family, colleagues and friends present.

Mayor Keith Kazmark recalled a story when his mother had first started working for the borough when he was in grade school. He said on his first day, his mother was reassigned to work in the building department. He said she told him she had a "really nice boss. His name is Felix."

Kazmark said that Esposito, while quiet and always working 'slightly under the radar,' "never looked for fanfare. He was just looking to get the job done."

Performing the borough's code enforcement responsibilities will be Allan Burghardt, who is working with Woodland Park through a shared service agreement with the Borough of Totowa, where he serves as construction code official, building sub-code official and zoning officer.
