This year’s Road Improvement Program by the Borough of Madison will include PAVING OPERATIONS ON FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2013, weather conditions permitting. Access to property will be restored within the day. Milling will be completed no more than 72 hours prior to paving, (Schedule May 1) but access during milling will not be compromised for more than one hour. Your cooperation is requested during the time of construction to remove/relocate the automobiles you intend to use by approximately 7:30 a.m. on paving days when the contractor is active on your street. This will minimize interruption of construction work and allow the contractor to finish as soon as possible. Temporary Parking on a minor local street within 1000 feet of your home/business may be anticipated with the cooperation of the Police Department. Emergency “NO PARKING” will be enforced by the Police Department during construction if vehicles impede progress. Specific scheduling problems may be directed to the office of the Borough Engineer. The Police Department can be contacted for traffic information and assistance. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION !
The Morris County Freeholders this year will take some of their regular public meetings on the road. The first will be Wednesday, April 24 in Madison, when the board’s public meeting will be conducted in the Hartley Dodge Memorial Building, 50 Kings Road, starting at 8 p.m. “When we leave Morristown, the county seat, and take some of our public meetings into the towns, it gives the freeholders the opportunity to meet face-to-face and to exchange ideas with local officials and to seek their input on the various issues that affect their communities,” said Freeholder Director Thomas J. Mastrangelo. Going into the town also makes it more convenient for those residents as well as residents of nearby communities to attend a freeholder meeting, meet the freeholders and learn more about Morris County government and the services it offers, Mastrangelo said.
