South River Approves Utility Rate Changes, Discusses Infrastructure

Overview: The South River Borough Council recently convened to deliberate on a series of ordinances and resolutions addressing utility rates, infrastructure projects, and community safety concerns. At the forefront of the discussions was the approval of an ordinance to decrease electric rates by approximately 5% and increase water rates by 10%. This move aimed at balancing the financial requirements for maintaining and improving the borough’s utility infrastructure was complemented by the introduction of a $950,000 bond ordinance intended to support the water line replacement program.

Overview: At a recent South River Borough Council meeting, the council addressed issues including community safety enhancements through the Neighborhood Watch program, infrastructure improvements with a focus on road upgrades, and local development initiatives. The council also engaged with public concerns about speeding and parking, and discussed upcoming community events.

Overview: In an effort to enhance accessibility and inclusivity, the South River Borough Council has given the green light to a grant application for the construction of an inclusive playground at Gregowski Park. Council President Jason Oliveira spearheaded the presentation of the proposal, emphasizing the park’s potential to provide a recreational space for children and adults with disabilities. The project, which hinges on the successful acquisition of a Jake’s Law playground grant, would cover 75% of the over $459,000 cost, with the borough seeking additional funding from an AARP grant for the remaining amount.

Overview: At the recent South River Borough Council meeting, the Council addressed several issues, with the most pressing being the need for part-time crossing guards amid concerns of adequate staffing. The police department emphasized the importance of filling these positions to maintain community safety and alleviate the burden on officers who currently cover these posts when crossing guards are unavailable. The department underscored the benefits of the job, which include time off and sick days, and encouraged residents to apply.

Overview: In a recent South River Borough Council meeting, Mayor John Krenzel emphasized the need for unity and collaboration among council members and residents in addressing the town’s challenges, particularly focusing on repairing water infrastructure and plans to establish a recreational facility for children.
