Property-Tax Savings Program Introduced at Caldwell Borough Council Meeting


CALDWELL, NJ – Eli Weingarden of Municipal Cards, LLC presented a property-tax savings program at the Caldwell Borough Council meeting on Tuesday that he said allows people to reduce their property tax through everyday spending at local merchant stores.

According to Weingarden, homeowners can save money by using a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation-insured debit card at local stores in the borough.

“This program is to help the local economy and lower taxes, help with cash flow, and is valuable to people on a fixed income,” said Weingarden.

The council asked Weingarden to provide a model on the additional benefits this program will give the Borough of Caldwell.

During public comment, many residents expressed their gratitude toward the council for passing a resolution condemning all efforts to delegitimize the state of Israel and the global movement to boycott, divest from and sanction the people of Israel.

“Thank you for condemning efforts to delegitimize the state of Israel and showing your support,” said residents Stephanie Bonder and Gail Black.

After a unanimous vote on the resolution, the public applauded.

Also passed was a resolution declaring the week of March 18 as Grover Cleveland Week in the borough.

Council President John Cascarano reminded residents that if any seniors need transportation to banks, grocery store, hair dresser, etc., to contact Maria Burak at (973) 403-4623 or at (973) 226-5108.

Mayor Ann Dassing said she and Chief of Police James Bongiorno recently attended a police academy program, where the focus was starting a campaign on making Bloomfield Avenue safe.  

“Between April 17 and June 29, there will be a campaign making Bloomfield safe by focusing on speeding and not being distracted while driving,” she said. “Every town that the road runs through will be participating. There will be measures before the campaign and after to see the results.”

In addition, the council commended the Department of Public Works for its efforts during the recent snowstorm.

The next Caldwell Borough Council meeting is on April 4.

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.
