WEST CALDWELL, NJ — Members of the West Caldwell Township Council provided their individual monthly reports and announcements to the public on Tuesday at the mayor and council meeting, facilitated by Council President Michael Docteroff in Mayor Joseph Tempesta’s absence.
Docteroff, who is also the chairman of the Department of Public Works (DPW), reported that he was pleased with the work done by the DPW during last week’s snowfall, but reminded residents that it is illegal to blow snow directly into the road.
“There is an existing ordinance which doesn't allow residents to pull their cars into the street to clear the snow off,” said Docteroff, adding that members of the DPW also spent time clearing the roads and parking lots the following day.
He also reported that he was pleased with the condition of the county roads as well.
Councilman Joseph Cecere notified the public that New Jersey Makers Day would take place on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the West Caldwell Public Library. The event allows families to come together to take part in a variety of activities and workshops including a Lego Demo and a Morse Code for Kids workshop.
The library will also reveal its brand new 3D Printer and demonstrate how it works, according to Cecere.
In addition, council members reminded senior residents to take advantage of the senior transit bus, which is available to take seniors anywhere in town except to doctors appointments. Anyone who knows of someone who could benefit from this service can contact the West Caldwell Community Center.
