ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury Mayor and Council on Tuesday named Democrat Councilman Dan Kline to the water and sewer committee, a move that came a week after a reorganization session that left the second-year representative without any committee positions.

New Roxbury Mayor Mark Crowley resigned from the water and sewer committee, calling for a motion to appoint Kline to his vacant spot. Councilman Bob DeFillippo made the motion, and Kline was approved by unanimous vote.

“Prior to our reorganization meeting last Tuesday, I told councilman Kline that I would be working on placing him on committees that I thought made sense,” Crowley, a Republican, said.

The water and sewer committee is working on upgrading sewers to the tune of $9 million at the plant on Ajax Terrace. The plant resides in the town’s 4th Ward, which is represented by Kline.

Kline is the lone Democrat on the seven-man council, making last week’s reorganization come across as a partisan cold shoulder.

“I think I’ve more than proven my worth,” Kline told TAPinto Roxbury last week after the reorganization was announced. 

Tuesday’s nomination might not be the last for Kline. Crowley said he’s started to review all the committees for possible fits for Kline, "but it will take some time," he added.

It Began With Filling Your Tank; Now They Fix Your Grandson’s Car

That was 1983 and soon the Knights’ business grew and expanded. The humble gas station gradually morphed into a state-of-the-art ...
