Borough Council Takes Up Community Garden Proposal Tonight
Project part of development of the Madison Recreation Center.
The Madison Borough Council, sitting for its last scheduled meeting of the year tonight at 8 p.m. at Hartley Dodge Memorial, has a number of agenda items up for discussion.
The meeting also is the last as mayor for Mary-Anna Holden, who passes the gavel to Democrat and current council member Bob Conley in January.
Scheduled agenda discussions include resolutions authorizing funding a lightning detection system, and a resolution authorizing construction and funding for a community garden.
The lightning system would be deployed in the borough and at Board of Recreation fields.
The community garden is part of ongoing development of the 49 Acres site annexed from Florham Park. It follows construction of the controversial synthetic turf athletic fields of behind the high school, and is also part of the Madison Recreation Center.
The sole ordinance for hearing on the agenda appropriates $25,000 from the General Capital Improvement Fund for traffic flasher improvements at the intersection of Noe Avenue and Woodland Road.
