Council Has Full Agenda Ahead this Week
A preview of what's to come in River Dell this week
The River Edge Mayor and Council will have a full night ahead of them during Monday's work session at 7pm between upcoming construction projects and a midyear budget review.
The governing body will hear from DPW Superintendent John Lynch and Police Chief Thomas Cariddi on the status of their respective budgets midway through the year. The Council previously heard from the smaller departments who all stated they should remain within their budget allotments for the year. But both the police and DPW have predominatelly accounted for the bulk of the borough's annual budget costs.
Also up for discussion will be the new generator for the Public Safety and Borough Hall buildings. In February, engineer Kenneth DelPercio provided River Edge with two options for upgrading its current 45-kilowatt generator: install a 250-kilowatt generator that would power both the municipal hall and the police department or a 175-kilowatt system to cover only the police department. The borough opted to seek bids for the larger generator option.
While the borough received a Community Development Block Grant in the past to install ADA compliant doors to the Public Safety Building, a recent search for bids yielded no results.
The Oradell Council will meet on Tuesday, 7pm for a public meeting.
