River Vale Council Advances $1.2M Road Project, Affordable Housing Initiative

In the recent River Vale Town Council meeting, the council advanced plans for a $1.2 million road resurfacing program, a significant affordable housing project, and celebrated the township’s new AA credit rating.

The meeting convened by Council President Paul J. Criscuolo included Councilmen Ari Ben-Yishay and John Donovan, alongside Township Attorney Silvana Raso, Township Engineer Chris Statile, and Township Clerk Karen Campanelli. Councilmembers Denise Sieg and Jim Tolomeo were absent.

Statile outlined updates on key township projects, notably a $1.2 million contract awarded to DLS Contracting for the Road Program. This includes paving work related to PSE&G trench work and DOT grant work, all scheduled for completion within a 60-day timeframe. Statile also reported on the progress of the Driving Range Confinement Netting project, stating that poles are up, and netting is currently being fabricated.

The Council also discussed plans for the New Public Safety Complex. Substantial completion of the building is expected by October 2024.

Councilman Donovan noted his recent honor of presenting an award on behalf of the Mayor and Council to Eagle Scout Alex Falkoff.

Mayor Mark Bromberg arrived later in the meeting to report on the township’s improved financial health, as evidenced by a new AA credit rating from a leading credit agency. The Mayor thanked everyone for their role in this achievement, stating that the township was now in a strong financial position.

Among the major resolutions approved during the meeting were several related to a large affordable housing project. The Council authorized Mayor Bromberg to sign both the Developer’s Agreement and the Disbursement Agreement with Lake Tappan Urban Renewal, LLC. This agreement will enable the construction of a 100% affordable housing development in compliance with a previous Settlement Agreement with the Fair Share Housing Center.
