Moonachie Council Approves Funds for Family Fun Day and Discusses Flooding Solutions

In a recent Moonachie Borough Council meeting chaired by Mayor Dennis Vaccaro, the council approved several resolutions including the authorization of funds for the borough’s Family Fun Day and the purchase of equipment. Discussions also centered on the borough’s ongoing flood mitigation efforts and potential introduction of an electric vehicle charging station at the municipal building.

Moonachie’s Family Fun Day received an expenditure greenlight of $3,215 for rental of slides and equipment from Fun Time Entertainment. The council emphasized that the equipment provided by the company in the past has been reliable and safe. Additionally, funds were approved for the purchase of a John Deere Tractor Mower, amounting to $9,153.44, through the Bergen County Purchasing Cooperative. Furthermore, the borough is to acquire two discharge valves for Engine#802, valued at $5,396.99, after obtaining competitive quotes.

Mayor Vaccaro brought attention to some ongoing concerns about flooding in the Moonachie area. He mentioned discussions with Boswell Engineering about a pump station near Romeo and Grand Street, which aims to alleviate flooding in that locality. The mayor also pointed out a property at 92 Moonachie Avenue that plans to construct a parking area. Although the NJSEA approved the construction, flooding concerns related to the project were not addressed.

On the topic of electric vehicles, Mayor Vaccaro talked about the possibility of purchasing an electric vehicle in the coming years and the potential establishment of a charging station at the Municipal Building.

Other discussions included the potential relocation of the court to the Municipal Building, a forthcoming ordinance to safeguard public records containing personal data, and updates on the police department’s communication clerk recruitment.

Council members Robert Bauer, Antonio Cirillo, Manuel Martinez, Kathy Kinsella, Karen Surak, and John Wende were present during the meeting, contributing to discussions and motion approvals.
