Hackensack City Council Advances Community Growth with New Ordinances and Holiday Initiatives

The Hackensack City Council recently held a productive meeting, focusing on enhancing community welfare and growth through a series of ordinances and seasonal initiatives. The council also authorized the continuation of an annual children’s holiday party and a gingerbread house contest, further promoting local community engagement.

One ordinance passed was the final adoption of ordinance number 48-2023, which extends restrictions on traffic from trucks over 4 tons on Spring Valley Avenue. This move was made in response to public concerns about safety and noise pollution. The council also introduced ordinance number 49-2023, establishing rules and regulations for the municipal community garden in Johnson Park, aiming to promote community engagement and environmental consciousness.

In a move to support disabled veterans, the council introduced ordinance number 50-2023, establishing procedures for property tax refunds. This ordinance aims to provide financial relief to disabled veterans, acknowledging their service and sacrifices.

In addition to the ordinances, the council also discussed various holiday initiatives. The city’s annual children’s holiday party is set to be held on Saturday, December 16th, at the Hackensack Performing Arts Center.

The council also addressed concerns about local businesses during the holiday season. To support local commerce, the council will be offering free parking on Main Street and Anderson streets from December 17th through January 2nd.

The council also approved several resolutions, including the authorization of tax refunds for state board judgments, the awarding of change orders to various construction projects, and the establishment of a reserve for preliminary expenses for the Johnson Park Greenhouse project.
