Moorestown Council, BOE Reorgs Highlight Week Ahead
Both bodies will elect—or reappoint—new leaders this week.
Township council and the board of education may have a different look following this week's reorganization meetings.
There was no council race in 2013, so the faces won't change, but council will have to elect a mayor and deputy mayor when it reorganizes Monday night. Stacey Jordan and Chris Chiacchio currently serve in those roles, respectively.
According to the agenda posted to the township website, council will reappoint Anthony Drollas as solicitor, as well as make a number of other appointments/reappointments.
There will be some new faces on several of the township's boards and committees. The Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC), for example, lost several longstanding members at the end of last year. Among the new members is Burris Construction vice president William Burris III. Former deputy mayor Greg Gallo will also sit on the committee.
Following the reorganization meeting (7 p.m.), council will commence its regular meeting. The only two noteworthy items on the agenda are: the awarding of a $332,610 contract to Millennium Communications Group Inc. for technology requirements at the new town hall/library and Church Street Rec Center, and a $73,755 contract to Tricomm Services Corp. for work related to cable and CCTV for the municipal complex buildings.
Both meetings will be held in the IT center at Moorestown High School.
Meanwhile, new BOE member Al Panzarella will be sworn in Tuesday, alongside reelected board members Kathy Goldenberg and Matt Simeone.
The school board's reorganization meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the media center at William Allen Middle School (WAMS).
The board will also elect a president and vice president. Board members Don Mishler and Goldenberg currently serve in those capacities.
The full agenda for the BOE reorganization meeting can be found on the district website.
The board will hold its regular monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 21 in the media center at WAMS.
And on Sunday, Our Lady of Good Counsel (OLGC) will hold an open house for full-day pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes. Parents, teachers and students will be on hand to lead tours and answer questions. Call 856-235-5371 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
