Video of the most recent Borough Council meeting, uploaded to the RosenetTV YouTube channel Thursday night, includes a quiet tribute to borough attorney Joseph Mezzacca Jr., who died this month after an illness at age 65.
The June 11 meeting was the first since Mezzacca died and, after the meeting is adjourned, the shot dwells on Mezzacca's empty seat before fading out.
The meeting ends about 2 hours 45 minutes into the video.
Mezzacca counseled Madison's mayor and Borough Council for 16 years, and before that served as attorney for the borough land use boards.
At the start of the meeting, Mayor Bob Conley held a moment of silence for Mezzacca, as well as Eva's Village founder and New Jersey historian
"It is hard to to remember a time before Joe took a seat at this table," Conley said. "His advice was always sound and had the best interests of Madison in mind."
Conley said the borough expects to pay further tribute to Mezzacca at Monday's Borough Council meeting.
Meetings are filmed for the borough by Robert Kopacz of RosenetTV.
