Official Comments: The mayor announced that the city will be participating in an asthma screening program which will take place at schools, parks and other public meeting places.  The program is sponsored, in part, by Hackensack University Medical Center.  More information will be posted soon.

Public Comment Portion:

Mr. Eric Martindale advised the council of the unsightly state of the railroad corridor between State and Union, behind City Hall, and asked if the situation could be remedied.  He also raised an issue about 1st and Clay Streets, although I was distracted I couldn’t get it.  Eric?…

Mr. Philip Roberts questioned the council on the S. Goldberg Property (proposed County DPW/Police HQ site) and whether the city could conduct a feasibility study to help determine whether the proposed site is better situated than the current site (in terms of tax ratables, quality of life issues, etc.)  The City responded that it had no such plans to commission a study and that the S. Goldberg site on River St. was clearly the better location for the County facility.

Another resident questioned which streets the city would repave this year and complained that many streets (even those recently paved, like Spring Valley) are quickly deteriorating.  The mayor shared his observation that this problem appears to be county-wide, perhaps state wide.  He opined that it may have to do with new paving methods that are apparently inferior to the old method.  

The next day, the city forward a list of streets to be paved in 2004.  Click HERE to see the list.  

It was a relatively short night.
