Wyckoff Council Member Scott Fisher Resigns Amid Personal Family Matters

In a recent Wyckoff Town Council meeting, Scott Fisher announced his resignation from the township committee, citing unforeseen family matters that necessitate his departure. This resignation was highlighted by Mayor Tom Madigan as he read Fisher’s letter to the community during the session. Fisher’s departure is significant due to his long-standing service and the impact his vacancy will have on the township committee.

Fisher’s letter expressed deep regret over his inability to continue serving on the committee, a decision he described as difficult. He praised Wyckoff’s commitment to excellence and strong volunteer base, and he credited his time with the Department of Public Works for allowing him to work with outstanding colleagues and establish lifelong friendships. Fisher’s announcement underscores the importance of personal commitments over public service, a sentiment echoed by council member Rudolf E. Boonstra who acknowledged that family comes first and praised Fisher for his contributions.

Council member Peter Melchionne and Mayor Madigan both offered condolences to Ean’s family, recognizing his contributions to Wyckoff’s recreational programs and his role in the community.

Mayor Madigan also took the opportunity to summarize the year’s achievements and extend gratitude to the town’s staff, particularly Township Administrator Matt Cavallo and Town Clerk Nancy Brown, for their exceptional service. Madigan’s comments reflected a message of unity and continued dedication to maintaining Wyckoff as a family-friendly town.

Other business conducted during the meeting included the approval of the December 19, 2023, business meeting minutes and a resolution to accept the police chief report and authorize towing licenses for 2024. The meeting concluded with a unanimous vote to adjourn.
