CALDWELL, NJ — Caldwell Borough Council members hosted their first “Coffee with the Council” at the Caldwell Community Center on Saturday. Following a successful “Coffee with the Cops” event last year, council members decided to host an informal meeting for residents to stop by and discuss borough matters.

Council President John Cascarano explained that he and other township officials felt it was important to host an event where residents could speak about issues that they may be uncomfortable speaking about during a formal meeting. However, most residents who stopped by simply wanted to get to know their town councilmen.

“It’s mostly been small talk [with the residents],” said Cascarano. “Many have expressed they are grateful we are doing this because most of them just watch the meetings on TV and don’t actually get a chance to meet us in a casual, low pressure environment.”

Resident Fran DePalma-Iozzi also said she decided to stop by because she was interested in meeting with the council members.

“I just wanted to meet some of the council members and see what is happening in the town,” she said.

DePalma-Iozzi is an active member of the community and is concerned about many environmental issues affecting New Jersey. She said she was hoping to ask council members about the presence of various toxins in the drinking water including Chromium 6, which has been found in many neighboring towns including West Caldwell.

Council members were pleased with the number of residents who turned out for this event and said they look forward to having similar meetings in the future.

A Special Thank You For Helping Us Weather The Storm

June 18, 2018

About a month ago, on May 15, 2018, something happened to me and my family that changed our lives. An act of God, apparently a “microburst,” tore through our front yard, and uprooted an approximately 19,000 pound tree. The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
