The first Common Council meeting of 2019 will be held on January 15. As with the beginning of any year, the agenda is relatively light as Common Council committees begin working on projects and city staff is involved in developing the 2019 budget.
There will be a presentation by the Fire Department on recent updated fire inspection requirements, the recent Insurance Service Office (ISO) audit and re-classification for the city that will take place in January 2019. ISO ratings play a major factor in how property insurance premiums are issued to businesses and homeowners.
Summit High School student Zachary Brooks will present a Summit historic minute.
Resolution for Consideration
There are a few resolutions for consideration, including one resolution authorizing the city engineer to use discretion when necessary to execute permit documents prepared or required by NJDOT, NJDEP, state and county for construction projects and to provide notification to the appropriate council committees when such action is taken. A second resolution requests that Union County install a new and upgraded traffic signal at the intersection of Broad and Walnut streets in preparation for the new fire station in that location. The third resolution enters the City of Summit into an agreement with the Union County for a rapid-flashing pedestrian signal at Elm Street and Morris Avenue. The fourth resolution for consideration accepts approximately $4000 in grant monies from the Summit Area Public Foundation for the purchase of six park benches to be placed in Phase I of the Summit Parkline. The fifth resolution for consideration declares three vacancies in the Division of Public Works and approves sick leave for a DPW employee.
