Police patrolling Greenwood Lake

New Jersey State Police patrols have returned to Greenwood Lake and will be present throughout the summer.

The patrols began on the Memorial Day weekend and are continuing every Saturday and Sunday throughout the Labor Day weekend, weather permitting, announced Paul M. Zarrillo, Greenwood Lake Commission (GLC) New Jersey co-chair.

Zarrillo personally credited and thanked Passaic County Freeholder Terry Duffy for his ongoing efforts in supporting the GLC efforts to bring the police patrols back onto the lake after an absence. Zarrillo said he also met several times with Senator Joseph Pennacchio for support of GLC efforts through the offices of Governor Chris Christie and Acting Attorney General John Jay Hoffman.

"It is great to finally be getting such support from our county and some of our state representatives," said Zarrillo. "Without any permanent funding it is really hard to manage the 28 square mile watershed. The commission is mandated to do so through legislation adopted to form the commission."

Zarrillo praised and thanked the five state police officers who spent two and a half hours touring the lake to get an idea of the landscape and become aware of any existing issues.

He said that in meeting with Major Louis Bucchere, Captain Tristin J. Collins and others from the Special Operations Section of New Jersey State Police Marine Services Bureau he was able to alert them about known hazardous stump locations and floating island locations.

"The police were amazed by the amount of weeds present in the lake at the time," said Zarrillo. "They also were amazed that we are having so much trouble getting funds for herbicides as well as for stump and floating removal/reduction projects."

The New Jersey commission co-chair said the GLC recently completed its most successful boat safety course to date – when 30 participants achieved their boating certifications. He reported that the next class will be on Sunday, July 31 at the Greenwood Lake Airport.

The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary’s Flotilla 1310 held a boat safety inspection at the Sportsman’s Marina on June 12.

Zarrillo thanked Councilman Tim Wagner, manager of the Greenwood Lake Airport, and Chris Leahy, owner of the Sportsman’s Marina for their continuing support of the GLC by offering use of their facilities to the commission at no cost.
