North Caldwell Borough Thanks Local Entities for Generous Donations


NORTH CALDWELL, NJ – Thanks to donations from the Recreation Foundation and the local Kiwanis Club, the Borough of North Caldwell will now benefit from a new scoreboard at Fireman’s Field and widescreens at the tennis courts.

During Tuesday’s borough council meeting, the mayor and council approved a resolution for the installation of the scoreboard, which was a donation from the Recreation Foundation. Mayor Joseph Alessi also announced his thanks to Kiwanis Club members for their contribution to the tennis courts.  

“Thank you for helping to improve our community and the people appreciate what you have done,” said Councilman Joshua Raymond.

Also during the meeting, Alessi reminded new residents that Nov. 2 is “Newcomers Night,” where incoming residents are invited to meet with the mayor and town council. A ceremony will be held at 8 a.m., followed by Mass at 9 a.m. at Notre Dame Church.

During public comment, a concerned resident complained to the council about the music and rowdiness that comes from the Horseneck Tavern.

“There are times when I’m sleeping in my bed and I can hear the music, or there are times where there are people outside of my home who came from the tavern,” Joel Finneri said.

Police Chief Mark Deuer told the resident that he has a sound detector to measure loudness and the sound has been under the decibel limit every time that he has checked.

“We’ve had complaints about the tavern—some were unfounded, other times we told them to lower the music,” Deuer said.

Resident Richard Verde, suggested that these meetings be televised for people who can’t attend them. Noting a second concern that it was bought to his attention by another citizen, Verde also questioned why some council members receive health benefits.

Council President Cynthia Santomauro responded that members who were on the council when New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was elected were grandfathered in, but that new members do not receive the health benefits.

“Those who were grandfathered in pay a portion of the benefits,” she said.

In other news, the council approved the appointment of Tami Michelotti as the local registrar of vital statistics.

An ordinance establishing the requirement to obtain landscaping licenses was also adopted during the meeting.

A second ordinance was introduced that prohibits parking on portions of Glenview Road. The final reading will be held during the public meeting on Nov. 28.

The next North Caldwell meeting is scheduled for Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m.

July 5, 2018

More than 240 years ago, our nation’s founders envisioned a country where individuals could forge their own destinies and not be constrained by the circumstances of birth. The essential concept was that people could govern themselves and participate in democracy, or what Benjamin Franklin and others called “a great experiment.” The vision was bold and has flourished as the ...

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
