Lopatcong Council Moves Forward with Hiring and Infrastructure Projects

In a recent Lopatcong Town Council meeting, the council organized actions to address personnel and infrastructural developments within the township. Notably, the council authorized the advertisement to hire a deputy clerk for an existing yet unfilled position.

The council also provided updates on the shared Municipal Court program with the township of Pohatcong, highlighting the cost-saving measure of shared services and confirming the location and presiding judge of the court. The council passed multiple ordinances, including adjustments to established wage rates for certain employees, the establishment of a yearly cap bank in preparation for the annual budget, and the tabling of an ordinance related to the vacation of a public street pending planning board review.

Moreover, the council addressed new business concerning the inclusion of background checks for members appointed to the Recreation committee. In the realm of infrastructure, the council approved several projects, such as the Jade Lane Improvement project for sidewalk and drainage structure repairs, the Upper Belvidere Road Transportation Alternatives program, and the Belleview Road Phase 2 project, all aimed at enhancing township infrastructure.

Additionally, the council discussed the Township pool and park project improvements, emphasizing the completion of concept plans and cost estimates, with subsequent steps involving securing funding mechanisms. The council also initiated a review of ordinances related to road opening permits to improve management and enforcement.

The meeting included reports on public safety, with the police department reporting on motor vehicle stops and traffic monitoring activities. Furthermore, the fire department announced the receipt of a $40,000 grant from the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs for structural firefighting gear, building on previous state support for essential equipment.
