Page 4 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • January 28, 2009 Franklin Lakes Borough seeks part time zoning officer by Frank J. McMahon The Borough of Franklin Lakes is looking for a part time zoning officer who would work for the borough 20 to 30 hours a week and be responsible for the enforcement of the borough’s zoning and property maintenance ordinances. Catherine Slater, the borough’s previous zoning officer, was employed in September 2007, but she was not reappointed to the position by Mayor Maura DeNicola this year. The borough council adopted an ordinance in December of 2007 to officially create the position of zoning officer in the borough. According to that ordinance, the zoning officer must be appointed by the mayor with the advice and consent of the borough council, and will hold that office until Jan. 1 following the appointment, or until a successor is appointed. Any vacancy in the office must be filled only for the unexpired portion of the term. Slater became the borough’s full-time zoning officer after being employed as the City of Clifton’s code enforcement officer since March 2003. The zoning officer before Slater, Joseph McDonnell, was employed part time from 2003 to 2007. He left the borough for a full time position elsewhere and the borough then changed its zoning code official position to a full time post. The new zoning officer will interact with the borough’s planning and zoning boards, investigate resident zoning matters, and issue notices of zoning violations and court appearances. The borough prefers to have applicants who have a zoning official certificate and at least three years of experience as a municipal zoning official. Computer skills including Microsoft Word & Excel are required, and the new zoning officer’s salary will be based on qualifications (continued on page 27) Helpful Hints Helpful Hints from ome “Reverse the rotation of your ceiling fan so the warm air is forced back down into the room”. 27 Franklin Tpk, Waldwick Open Sundays 9-3 201-652-5666 Billy Says...
