Caldwell Checks Paving Gladding Road Off the List
A look at some recently completed projects around town.
Caldwell Borough Administrator Paul Carelli happily informed the governing body at Tuesday night's council meeting that Gladding Road has been milled and paved.
Repairing the road—which has been a heated topic of discussion for at least 18 months—is just one of many projects recently crossed off the borough's to-do list.
Here's what else has been reported as complete:
- All parking meters on Bloomfield Avenue have been updated to 50 cents an hour, up from 25 cents an hour. Meters on side streets were 70% updated as of Tuesday.
- A total of seven security camers have been installed inside and outside the Caldwell Community Center. It was reported at Tuesday's meeting that someone was caught on film allegedly taken a wallet from a locker room on the first day the cameras were installed. The incident is under investigation by Caldwell Police.
- A retaining wall that had been deteriorating in the Hanford Lot behind the Cloverleaf Tavern has been repaired.
- The fine for overtime parking at meters has been reduced from $70 to $45.
- In what should come as a relief to apartment dwellers living adjacent to the Kiwanis Oval, a new policy will prohibit starting an inning after a men's softball game has gone over an hour and 15 minutes in length.
