The winter is upon us and we managed to get some ice skating done. With cooperation from the Recreation Commission, the town's DPW, and interested volunteers to include the fire department and rescue squad, we shoveled on a Saturday and skated on Sunday. Dave Cillo showed up with his snow blower which really helped our effort.
During the bright and cold Sunday afternoon I counted about sixty skater's at one time.
As a result of that successful event, we worked out a plan where the Borough Administrator is in charge of managing skating in the future. Five inches of ice will be a minimum as measured by the DPW. Then paths will be shoveled and signage will be installed as well as markings on the pond to delineate approved skating areas.
Bear in mind that ice skating will ALWAYS be at the skater's risk.
In the spirit of volunteerism, a group of ladies, not affiliated with any group took it upon themselves to do a cleanup of some streets in our community as well as the Gladstone train station. Wouldn't it be fun to come up with a name for such a group? I'm not identifying the ladies, but their work is very appreciated.
The Borough Council members always have jobs assigned by the Mayor for the following year. Successful handoffs were made from previous committee chairmen and each person is now doing their new job. I suppose the one result that will be most noticeable in the near future will be paving a portion of Willow Avenue, which will probably start in the late summer.
We are working on the 2018 budget right now and will diligently work at maintaining or improving services while doing so at reasonable cost.
