Council meeting reports will be provided by Mayor Nora Radest and City Administrator Michael Rogers. Council President Pro Tem Susan Hairston will run the meeting in place of President Greg Vartan, who recently tested positive for COVID-19.
Pending closed session discussion, Common Council will approve an extension of sick leave for two city employees.
There is one ordinance for hearing that will add a four way stop at the intersection of Prospect Street and Blackburn Road.
Council will consider resolutions related to bid advertisements and professional landscaping services, as well as a couple of finance resolutions. There is a grant application resolution, and Council will appoint a new member to the Parking Advisory Committee. There are several resolutions related to personnel that will declare vacancies and approve promotions in the police department.
The effect of road work in the downtown on the potential seasonal closure of Maple Street will be an item for discussion. Last week, city officials and staff were informed that PSE&G will be completing a major infrastructure improvement project in the downtown throughout the upcoming spring and summer. The Capital Projects and Community Services Committee has reviewed the information provided by PSE&G and does not believe a seasonal closure of Maple Street is feasible while major infrastructure work is happening in the downtown.
