Council agenda posted

Posted by edison1205 on January 8, 2010

The agenda for next week’s council meetings is taking shape and is posted here.

We have one new planning board member coming (Bill Stephens), one returning (John Soltesz) and one new zoning board member proposed (Haresh Verma).  The interim business administrator is not mentioned.  An ordinance proposes expanding the speech limit at meetings from 4 minutes to 6.

We see that closed session will include talks about union contracts with the township lawyers.  The three fire and two police contracts have already expired, and maybe other unions’ agreements also.  The Edison Blog would love to be a fly on the wall at that meeting!

And we have heard nothing about whether Mayor Ricigliano plans to regularly attend council meetings.  Ex-mayors Choi and Spadoro handled that issue very differently.

With the 10 police demotions (or promotion cancellations) announced in the news today, UPDATE: and the fire/EMS demotions announced on January 11 and rumors of other demotions flying about, next Monday’s worksession and Wednesday’s regular meeting promise to be very interesting.  See the Civic Calendar page for info on times and places.
