BERNARDSVILLE, NJ -- The Bernardsville Borough Council last week proposed an ordinance appropriating $270,000 for the milling and paving of Mt. Harmony Road next month.

According to Bernardsville Mayor Mary Jane Canose, some other unexpended balances and other capital ordinances were canceled in order to hasten the Mt. Harmony Road paving project. There will be a public hearing at the next council meeting on June 24.

"We've been getting a lot of complaints, and it's a real safety issue over there," Canose said at the June 10 council meeting. "(We're going to) try to get that project in in July."

Of the $270,000 total earmarked for the project, $165,135 would come from the Capital Improvement Fund and $104,865 from the Capital Fund Balance. Mt. Harmony Road will be milled and paved and the center line re-striped.

"We also want to try to get it done before it may become more expensive to do it later," Council President Thomas O'Dea said. "Hopefully we can avoid a bigger expense a year from now."
