Do you already
"We have lots of ordinances," said Councilman Rick Franks in exasperation, and because the borough has no way to enforce them, said he, they just represent a lot of money going to lawyers. His frustration came out during a meeting of the Great Bend Borough Council on April 3rd when he and his colleagues considered adding yet 2 more ordinances to the files.
Mike Lonzinski, the Borough's Emergency Management Coordinator, put the first one on the list. He reminded Council that the County is pressing municipalities to develop plans to name streets and roads in a consistent manner, and to readdress all structures, in order to support the "enhanced 911" system for emergency response. He said that the measures were expected to be done up in the form of ordinances, preferably by June of this year, perhaps enabling municipalities to become eligible for $500 slices of grant money available for emergency support.
New Milford Borough Council members, save for Teri Gulick who was unable to attend, addressed a variety of issues at it regular meeting last Thursday night. It opened with a Good Neighbor Recognition of Tom Chamberlain. Member Rick Ainey read a long list of the many ways he has helped the community over the years, summarized by, "If you need a donation, hes always there. If you need a hand to fix, or build, or deliver, hell be the first one to tell you hell be glad to help."
In communications items, Council received a thank you note from a resident for the warm and caring welcome that greeted members of the National Guard when they arrived home. It seemed as though the entire borough was bedecked with yellow ribbons. Council member Jane Zick was thanked for organizing the effort.
