Waldwick August 5, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 9 Police department’s newest sergeant takes oath The Waldwick Police Department welcomed its newest sergeant last week as Frank Paccione took his oath. His mother, Frances, attended the ceremony and placed her son’s pin on his uniform. Paccione was raised in Waldwick, and graduated from Waldwick High School in 1977. He is a graduate of the New York City Police Academy, and resides in Mahwah. Before joining the Waldwick Police Department, he was assigned to the 48th Precinct in the Bronx, New York. This January, he became tour commander for “C” squad. Paccione began his career with the Waldwick Police Department in January 1990. He is the community policing/crime prevention officer and runs the department’s programs in the local schools for students in kindergarten through grade four (with the exception of the DARE program). He also coordinates Operation Reassurance, a program that allows seniors who live alone to check in with the department each day. He has received numerous awards, including the Cooper Physical Fitness Award, recognition for several CPR saves, six awards for drug arrests, and multiple apprehension awards. Waldwick Police Chief Mark Messner and Waldwick Borough Administrator Gary Kratz recommended Paccione for the appointment based on the officer’s standing on the list and his professional accomplishments with the department. His annual salary will be $119,952. Council to reduce notary fee charges The Waldwick Council last week introduced an ordinance reducing the fee for providing notary services to non-residents. The charge will now be $2.50 per document. In June a $5 fee was established, but borough officials found out state law limits the charge. There is no charge for Waldwick residents. The fee was instituted at the request of Borough Clerk Paula Jaegge, who said that the call for notary services has increased and that many people were being sent from out of town to use Waldwick’s services because there was no charge. This created an imposition on Waldwick employees. The council also introduced an ordinance raising by $5 the reimbursement rates for the use of borough vehicles. The new hourly rates are as follows: $85 for the sweeper or loader; $35 per pick-up truck; $55 for the dump truck and $25 for a police car. Operator fees are based on actual costs and depend on the salary of the employee assigned to drive the vehicle. Charges are usually paid by insurance companies or, in the case of police cars, by utility companies doing road work. Both ordinances will have a public hearing at the council’s Aug. 11 meeting. Frank Paccione receives his pin from his mother Frances as Public Safety Commissioner Don Sciolaro looks on. HARDING WINE & SPIRIT The shore is nice, but don’t pay the price.
