Glen Ridge Borough Council Addresses Concerns Over Holiday Greetings on Social Media

Overview: During the recent Glen Ridge Borough Council meeting, a public comment raised concerns about the absence of Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah greetings on the town’s official Facebook page, despite other holidays being acknowledged. The citizen’s query sparked a discussion on diversity, inclusion, and the handling of holiday communications by the borough. Councilor Deborah Mans responded to the concerns, clarifying that there was no deliberate exclusion of any holiday and that any gaps in social media posts were not intentional oversights. Mayor Stuart K. Patrick and other council members assured that the matter would be reviewed, emphasizing that any errors were not made with ill intent.

Overview: The Glen Ridge Borough Council recently convened to bid farewell to outgoing Mayor Stuart K. Patrick who has retired after 16 years of service to the community. The council also welcomed Mayor-elect Deborah Mans and newly elected council members Lori Jean Moody and David Leitz. The gathering was marked by the heartfelt expressions of gratitude for Mayor Patrick, the nomination and approval of Councilor Ann Marie Morrow as the council president for 2024, and the setting of priorities and appointments for the upcoming year.

Overview: The recent meeting of the Glen Ridge Borough Council was dominated by debates concerning a proposed short-term rental ordinance, suggestions for regulating gas leaf blowers, and rising concerns about car thefts in the community. The council agreed to postpone the final passage of the short-term rental ordinance for further deliberation, in light of concerns voiced by residents.

Overview: In a recent meeting, the Glen Ridge Borough Council deliberated on several matters including a public request for a nativity scene, the pursuit of a $40,000 Community Development Block Grant for ADA-compliant ramps, and the passing of ordinances. The council also addressed traffic concerns at the intersection of Clark Street and Hillside Avenue and commemorated the efforts of various individuals in the community.
