Final Hearing Date is Announced for New Ordinance and More from West Caldwell Township Council


WEST CALDWELL, NJ — An ordinance to establish and preserve a cap bank was introduced and passed on first reading at a regular meeting of the West Caldwell Township Council on Tuesday. The ordinance will be taken up for further consideration and final passage at the March 15 meeting, at which time all persons interested will be given an opportunity to be heard concerning the new ordinance.

A full reading of the aforementioned ordinance can be read on the township's website HERE.

According to Councilman Michael Docteroff, speaking on behalf of the Public Works Committee, bids are also being sent out for Lawn Maintenance, Solid Waste and Road Re-servicing for the Township of West Caldwell in the coming weeks. Docteroff explained that each of the three bids will be crucial for the township and thanked Administrator Adam Brewer for his effort in putting them together.

“I think it’s a good, solid, tight speck in accordance with state statures,” said West Caldwell Mayor Joe Tempesta. “Hopefully they will bear fruit.”

In other news, two resolutions were pulled from the evening’s agenda for further public review at the March 15 meeting, including authorizing the execution of an Essex Valley School agreement for multipurpose synthetic field improvements as well as authorizing an amendment to various recreational agreements between the Township of West Caldwell and the Borough of Caldwell.

Wrestling Coach of West Caldwell-Caldwell Recreation James Haas, who Tempesta deemed one of the township’s most valuable volunteers, was applauded by the Mayor and Township Council members for his efforts and enthusiasm with the Recreation’s Wrestling Program.

“James Haas, whatever he’s doing, whether it’s wrestling coaching or football coaching, he is always a ball of enthusiasm,” said Councilman Stephen Wolsky. “It’s just great to have him there—He’s been there a long time and it’s just fun to be around him and really is a good guy.”

Wolsky also announced some upcoming events, including a “Swap Meet” at Harrison School on March 12, where kids can swap athletic gear and is usually well attended, according to Wolsky. An annual park cleanup will occur on April 9 and 10 and a kid-friendly Earth Day event is currently being planned for April 23.

More on this meeting will appear in TAP into West Essex tomorrow regarding a special meeting agenda, which included four department heads to discuss the 2016 budgettook place before the regular meeting no Tuesday.
