Pleasantville City Council Moves Forward on Long-Stalled Pedestrian Bridge Project

Overview: The Pleasantville City Council has taken a step toward realizing a long-awaited infrastructure project that promises to improve pedestrian connectivity in the city. During their meeting on January 21, 2024, the council focused on Resolution 29, which seeks to secure 100% funding for the pedestrian bridge project through a federal infrastructure grant. This development comes after over a decade of stalled progress, bringing renewed hope that the bridge will finally come to fruition.

Overview: Pleasantville’s recent City Council meeting sparked a significant backlash from the community as council members faced impassioned opposition to a proposed $10,000 raise for each council member. The raise became a flashpoint for broader discussions on financial stewardship, public service, and community priorities. Residents voiced strong concerns, highlighting the self-sacrifice of local volunteers and the financial burdens on taxpayers, and urging the council to reconsider the raise in light of ethical and budgetary implications.

Overview: In a recent meeting, the Pleasantville City Council tackled a range of issues, with the most contentious being the proposed salary adjustments for the mayor and council members. The proposal sparked debate among residents and council members, with public comments addressing financial prudence, infrastructure needs, and the prioritization of city improvements. Other matters included the city’s fiscal year 2022 audit report, the 2024 budget planning, infrastructure projects, and the impact of the cannabis industry on the city’s revenue.
