Overview: The Cedar Grove Town Council recently convened to address several issues, most notably the approval of an ordinance to exceed municipal budget appropriation limits and establish a cap bank, and the concerns regarding water runoff affecting local properties. The ordinance approval paves the way for a 3.5% increase in appropriations, while the discussions on water runoff centered around the detrimental impact on properties and the need for collaborative solutions.

Overview: In a detailed Cedar Grove Budget Meeting, officials grappled with various financial challenges, from increased insurance costs to the need for infrastructure updates such as the replacement of a 20-year-old ladder truck for the fire department and the potential rise in utility rates. The council focused on the town’s recreation, pool utility, library, engineering, public utilities, and fire department budgets, while also considering the impact of increased costs on future tax rates.

Overview: In a recent Cedar Grove School Board meeting, issues were raised by parents regarding the handling of harassment, intimidation, and bullying (HIB) investigations.

The board responded to these concerns.

Overview: In a notable move to enhance local community facilities, the Cedar Grove Town Council has unanimously approved a resolution to apply for state funding for the renovation of the lower playground in Community Park.
