Wyckoff Appoints Roger Lane to Township Committee Amid Public Praise

In a recent meeting of the Wyckoff Town Council, Roger Lane was appointed to fill a vacancy in the Township Committee until the November 2024 general election’s results are certified. The selection of Lane was a key point of interest, highlighted by affirming statements from his peers regarding his extensive experience in municipal government and his commitment to serving the community with integrity.

The meeting began with a special invocation and proceeded to a 10-minute public comment period, which saw no participation from the audience. Following this, the motion to appoint Roger Lane was put forth and received unanimous support from the council members, including Rudolf E. Boonstra, Thomas J. Madigan, Timothy E. Shanley, and Mayor Pete Melchionne.

Mayor Pete Melchionne and other council members expressed confidence in Lane’s abilities, citing his previous service on various boards and commissions and his tenure on a regional school board. Lane, in his remarks, acknowledged the weight of the position with humility and expressed his commitment to serve with honor, integrity, and fairness. He thanked his family, the honorable Judge Rob Landelle for administering the oath of office, Pastor Andy Cadman for the invocation, and the County Committee for their support.

Lane’s appointment and the council’s unanimous approval were significant as they ensure continuity and stability in the Township Committee’s functions. His experience and the support from the community leaders suggest a positive outlook for his tenure.
