RANDOLPH, NJ-At last Thursday’s meeting, town council recognized two Girl Scouts for reaching the highest achievement in scouting, the Gold Award. Two new police officers were also sworn in.

Scouts Rachel Snyder and Amy Gabel (both of Randolph Troop #1969), with family members looking on, received Randolph council proclamations presented by mayor Loveys and deputy mayor Veech.

Rachel Snyder worked with a pre-teen diabetic support group at Goryeb Children’s Hospital called “Diabetic Divas” and elected to focus on providing medical ID bracelets for newly diagnosed Type I diabetes patients, who would otherwise have to wait 1-3 weeks for a potentially lifesaving ID tag or bracelet.

Amy Gabel’s project centered on the Antler Ridge Wildlife Rehabilitation Sanctuary in Newton, where she volunteered to build enclosed climbing posts for squirrels that are injured or sick, in order to increase the chances of survival once they are released.

The proclamations commend the two for “reaching the zenith of Scouting.”  Mayor Loveys added that, “attaining the Gold Award speaks to your character, your leadership ability, your commitment and dedication, your high moral standards and the love that you have for your community and your country.”

At a separate ceremony, manager Stephen Mountain introduced Randolph PD’s 34th and 35th officers, saying: “The township is very fortunate.  These two gentleman have gone through the rigors of Morris County Police Academy and have further gone through our process, and in the process of doing that have greatly impressed our senior police management staff.”

Matthew O’Hern graduated from Thomas Edison College and served in the armed forces in Afghanistan.  He also is a certified EMT who has served as a volunteer fire fighter.

Kyle Hefferon received a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Moravian College and worked in the private sector as a maintenance engineer.  He has held an internship with Roxbury Twp., and worked as a dispatcher there as well as for Morris County.

Police Chief Stokoe said, “we really pride ourselves in our [recruiting] process…it is a very rigorous and challenging process and we’re extremely confident that we got the cream of the crop.  We’re very happy and very excited to have them.”

Also at the meeting, manager Mountain briefed the council on some road intersection improvements at Canfield Ave. and Rt. 10, which are at present in a very early phase of discussion.

Mountain communicated later by email that, “The Township is exploring the possibility of an intersection upgrade involving the addition of left turn lanes on the north and south side of Rt. 10, along with a signalization upgrade in conjunction with the State’s improvement of Rt. 10.”

It seems the town would like to see left, straight, and right-hand turn lanes for Canfield on both sides the highway. 

However, Mountain made it clear that “improvements on the south side are prospective with future development and will not get serious until the referenced property owner brings a redevelopment plan before the planning board.”

Also, in the case of the north side of the intersection, Randolph will have to work with Morris County on an agreement regarding any improvements.

The next council meeting will be July 31 at 7 p.m.
