Nutley Board of Commissioners Discuss Public Safety and Upcoming Events

The Nutley Board of Commissioners discussed public safety concerns, upcoming community events, and approved several budget transfers in their recent meeting.

The meeting, held on December 5th, 2023, focused chiefly on public safety, with Commissioner Evans urging residents to lock their doors due to a recent increase in burglaries on the east side of town. He commended the police department’s efforts in maintaining pressure on the situation throughout the holiday season. A meet and greet with Santa at Public Safety was also announced, offering children the chance to meet local law enforcement and firefighters.

Community events held discussion time in the meeting, with the commissioners commending the successful tree lighting event despite challenging weather conditions. The Board also noted the upcoming presentation of Frozen Jr at Nutley High School and a Christmas cookie decorating event.

The Board approved a number of budget transfers within various departments, including Health Insurance, Snow Removal, Weed and Leaf Removal, and the Sewer System. Additionally, they authorized applications for funding for the installation of ADA compliant curb cuts in specific sections of Nutley.

The Commissioners approved a change order in a contract with E.S. Rundy and Sons for the removal and recycling of Class B clean wood, brush, leaves, and grass clippings. A decrease in the contract amount was approved due to change order number one.

Two upcoming community events received approval, including a spaghetti dinner organized by VFW Post 493 and an annual holiday toy drive event by Michael Chiefo.
