Haddon Heights Expands Shared Services, Advances Public Safety and Infrastructure

In a recent Haddon Heights Borough Council meeting, the council approved several measures to enhance public services and infrastructure. Notably, the council authorized an extension of the shared services agreement for firefighting between Haddon Heights and Barrington. Additionally, the council moved forward with public safety initiatives, including the introduction of a K9 program and EMS shared services. Infrastructure developments were also a focus, with the adoption of a bond ordinance for sidewalk improvements and the establishment of a new sewer department.

The shared services agreement with Barrington, which has been in place for the past year, was extended for four years. This extension reflects the successful partnership and the commitment to continued collaboration for effective firefighting services in both communities.

Public safety was a key priority, with the council expressing enthusiasm for the recently approved K9 program expected to bring a new dynamic to local law enforcement. Additionally, the council reviewed the positive progress of the EMS shared services agreement, which involves Haddon Heights, Barrington, and Runnemede.

Infrastructure improvements were addressed through the passage of a bond ordinance, which authorizes significant sidewalk installations and improvements.

In a move to further streamline municipal services, the council adopted an ordinance establishing a sewer department. This new department will oversee the adoption of connection fees and sewer service charges.

Other resolutions included the approval of emergency temporary appropriations and various capital equipment acquisitions. The council also approved a resolution to apply to the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs for improvements to a local recreation complex.

Engagement with the community and council members’ reports highlighted the diligent work across various departments, including public works, engineering, and parks. The council members reported on activities such as pothole repairs, tree plantings, and preparations for upcoming projects.
