Silver Award Presentation – Girl Scout Silver Award – Grace Chapman and Clara Marotta
C. Marotta and G, Chapman are members of Girl Scout Troop 94488. They have proposed to walk the Dunham Trail, clean up trash, identify flora and fauna to analyze and then denote with informative signs. They have contacted an ecologist, Jean Epiphan who has agreed to assist them with this project and help them identify plants and trees along the Dunham Trail.
System/Stable The Stable is in dire need of a new telephone system, only one line is functioning. A new system was to be installed but that has not transpired. Work has been done on the present system but to no avail. It has been three months and the system is still deplorable. The department cannot function effectively without a working phone system. This is the busiest time of year, the pool is open, summer day camp has begun and all are enjoying various activities. If there should be an emergency and the phones are not working it could be disastrous. Several Track-it work orders were sent.
Turf Replacement Project Complete
• Annual maintenance contract - The Fields Committee and sports groups agreed they will cover the cost of field maintenance performed by a third party of the Village’s choosing. This will allow the Village Council to earmark the money that would have been used for maintenance to be put in a fund for replacement of the turf field in the future.
Open Space Grant - Filed June 18th
Application 2018 A letter of intent has been submitted to the Bergen County Open Space Committee requesting $58,500 matching funds for a 50/50 match. Phase II of the Kings Pond Park improvement plan will include; a walking path, benches, addition of shade trees, lawn play area and a small children’s playground.
It seems that Bergen County’s focus is to change their image and is making big changes county-wide.
2018 Green Acres
Diversion Update The diversion is at a standstill. It was mentioned that a paper street by Marlborough Road, coupled with the Ross property is being considered. A playground might need to be built on the property as well, in order to satisfy the terms of the diversion.
• A resident went to the podium at a Village Council meeting. He stated that when Graydon Pool is closed there is no communication. With the new system Director N. Bigos will send an email to all residents to inform them of the pool’s closing for the day. In addition, Graydon Pool has a flag system that was devised last year as an advisory for the residents. As a courtesy, when patrons of the pool have purchased day passes and the pool is closed due to lightning, they are given vouchers so they may return another day.
o Graydon Pool’s Master Calendar and Group Schedule for July were also made available to all residents.
