Saddle Brook Council Reveals Veteran Banners, Secures Recreation Grant and Introduces Municipal Budget

The Saddle Brook Town Council’s recent meeting, led by Council President Garrick, covered a vast array of topics. One of the highlights of the meeting was the Mayor’s report on the Hometown Heroes Veterans Banners project, which will honor Saddle Brook’s veterans. A total of 101 banners have been purchased by family and friends, and these will be unveiled at a ceremony on May 27th before being installed on Market Street and North Midland Avenue poles. The project was made possible by significant contributions from local veterans’ organizations.

The Mayor further announced a $60,000 Local Recreation Improvement Grant, secured from the state. The funds will be used to construct a new basketball court at 5th Street Park.

The Council also set the stage for the town’s fiscal future by introducing the 2023 Municipal Budget, supported unanimously in a roll call vote. The budget is set to exceed the municipal appropriation limits and establish a cap bank, adhering to New Jersey Statutes. A public hearing has been scheduled for June 15th, with auditor Steve Wilcox attending to provide his insights.

In the midst of these significant strides, the Council took time to celebrate individuals who have contributed to the community. Councilwoman Flo Mazur received commendations for over 20 years of service, a testament to her enduring commitment to Saddle Brook. In the same vein, local resident Jenna Santa Croce was acknowledged for her Guy’s White Scholar award, a prestigious recognition that added a touch of academic prestige to the evening’s proceedings.

Additionally, the meeting highlighted the importance of engaging with local residents and encouraging their contributions. Thomas, a representative from the Mayor’s Youth Group, reported on the group’s park clean-up and tree planting initiative at Tricentennial Park on Earth Day and welcomed new members to join.

The council also addressed key municipal matters. The new ordinance preventing vehicles from parking on unpaved surfaces is now in full effect, with the Mayor asserting this rule in his report.

Various community events were also discussed, including the inaugural car show by American Cruisers set for June 11th, with part of the proceeds benefitting the Ambulance Corps. The town’s Flood Committee will meet on June 29th at the Senior Center, further underlining the council’s commitment to public safety and environmental resilience.
