Matawan Borough Council Workshop 7pm April 10th
There will be a Workshop on Thursday April 10th, at 7pm at the Matawan Municipal Community Center. These workshops are to discuss among the Council members what items will be placed on the Agenda for the next Council meeting.
The Workshops are an opportunity to see and hear for yourself exactly what your Councilpeople are planning to do with your tax dollars. If only this Council would stop all the political posturing and work together for Matawan. But we fear that is a "dog that is not going to run." You see Bunyon and Malley have thrown their hats into the ring for the upcoming Borough Council elections. Has anyone else notice Councilman Malley didn't speak for two years and since Mayor Buccellato has been in office, Malley talks, talks and talks. Not always making sense but he does stop any progress. Bunyon, was the lowest vote getter in the last election and was appointed. However, he does vote the Democratic positions on such items as Borough Attorney, Borough Planner, etc. Whether or not these are the real candidates or will the Democrats do another Bunyon-Cannon switch on us, is yet to be determined.
As for the Agenda, haven't seen anything on the website as yet. Possible items are Recreation Dept monies, the relocation of the Police and possibly the Municipal Court and the ambitious Road Program. Everyone is anxious to hear where the Democrats are getting the monies for all these items. Please don't tell us BONDS! Don't let them kid you, bonds must be paid back and we have yet to hear from Councilman Cannon on the cost for the Road Program over the next few years.
Well folks that's it for now. Hope to see you at the Workshop meeting.
