Resto, Holman to Begin Second Terms on Borough Council

The Chatham Borough Council's first meeting of 2013 will include a discussion of a potential shared construction office between Madison and Chatham, and establish an Overnight Parking Advisory Committee.

The Chatham Borough Council will reconvene for their reorganization Monday, their first meeting in the new year.

Mayor Bruce Harris will give his annual address, which will recapture the old year and look forward into 2013.

Besides the annual address from Harris, Councilmen Len Resto and John Holman will be sworn in for their second terms on the council. Both were recently re-elected to the council.

A regular meeting will follow the reorganization meeting. Information Technology Services, a Sergeant Zone Plan for the Chatham Borough Police Department and a shared service between Madison and Chatham for the construction office are among the discussion items on the regular agenda.

If the construction services are shared, there is a potential layoff of employees in the borough.

No resolution to share construction services is currently on the agenda.

During the reorganization meeting, the council will reappoint various borough employees and volunteers to their respective positions, including Zoning Board members, Farmers Market Advisory Committee Members, Open Space and Historiecal Preservation Trust Advisory Committee members, Mayors' Wellness Committee members, 9/11 Memorial Advisory Committee members, Municipal Pool Advisory Committee, Public Arts Council and other municipal boards and committees, if the action items in the reorganization agenda are approved as currently drafted.

The council may also vote on a resolution establishing an Overnight Parking Advisory Committee, which will make recommendations on overnight parking within the borough in February. Among the members currently on the resolution to be appointed to the committee are:

  • Bill Tackaberry
  • Councilmen Resto, Gerald Helfrich and James Lonergan
  • Police Chief Philip J. Crosson
  • Frank Truilo
  • Spencer Giacalone
  • Herb Ramo
  • Karen Yeaw
  • Chris Tomaino

The council will also vote on a resolution authorizing $30,000 for additional lighting at Shunpike Field.

The Chatham Borough Council meets at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Chatham Borough Municipal Building. A full copy of the reorganization agenda and the regular meeting agenda can be found in the Photos & Documents section of this email.
