PASSAIC COUNTY FREEHOLDERS PARTNER WITH WEST MILFORD FOR ADA APPROVED DEVELOPMENT

At the last Freeholder meeting, the Board of Chosen Freeholders approved the allocation of unused funds from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to the Township of West Milford. The grant totals $6000 and will go towards an ADA approved automatic door in the West Milford Recreation Center.

“The Freeholders are proud of the work that our local partners have done with the funds from the Community Development Block Grant,” said Freeholder Director TJ Best. “The added benefit to this grant is that no county taxpayer dollars are used to make these necessary improvements.”

In 2010, the CDBG had $2,960 of unused funds, and $3,038 from 2012. Funds from grants typically have a deadline, and if funds are not used by that time they must be returned. This resolution secured the remaining funds and they will be awarded to West Milford for an ADA approved automatic door.

“West Milford faces a lot of hurdles when it comes to development,” said Freeholder and West Milford resident Terry Duffy. “Most buildings are older, and were not built to be ADA accessible. The township has put forth every effort make the necessary updates, and I am glad to help achieve that goal.”

According to the rules of the grant, the public has 30 days from April 27th to submit a public comment. If you cannot make the next public meeting, you can submit your comments to contact@passaiccountynj.org
