Ho-Ho-Kus September 9, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 7 Officials anticipate renewed Adopt a Gazebo effort by Jennifer Crusco With the start of a new school year in Ho-Ho-Kus, borough officials anticipate a renewed commitment to the Adopt a Gazebo plan proposed this spring by Alexa Pagliaroni of the Ho-Ho-Kus Public School Student Council and Student Council Advisor Karin Frassetto. The students’ Adopt a Gazebo plan aims to keep the HoHo-Kus Town Green’s landmark a tidy, graffiti-free place for the community to enjoy. Plans call for the Green Team, a subgroup of the Student Council, to visit the gazebo once a week to clean up this community meeting place. Earlier this year, borough council members noted that trash, vandalism, and graffiti have plagued the local landmark. The council requested assistance from the Ho-HoKus Department of Public Works, and a DPW crew power washed the gazebo and applied a coat of stain to cover the graffiti. Council members had considered installing security cameras, and even a suggestion to move the gazebo off the green, but ultimately decided to seek help from the school. Councilwoman Maryellen Lennon and Council President John Mongelli then took the borough’s concerns to the HoHo-Kus Public School, where they proposed a cooperative cleanup effort that would incorporate authorities from the borough and the school. Ho-Ho-Kus Superintendent Deborah Ferrara previously said the students were quick to respond to the Lennon and Mongelli’s message. Officials believe the students who volunteer their time to keep the gazebo clean will likely encourage others to treat the structure with respect. When the students presented their proposal to the council, Ho-Ho-Kus Mayor Thomas Randall and the council members applauded their plans, noting that the gazebo is a centerpiece in the borough. Mongelli told Pagliaroni and Frassetto the borough believes the solution to a tidier gazebo lies with the students. Ho-Ho-Kus Police Chief Gregory Kallenberg has also reported that Officers Sean Leonard and Anthony Ballestrieri have been working with the school children to urge them not to litter. Participants in the borough’s Junior Police Academy, which is run by the police department each summer, have cleaned the gazebo, and urged others to keep the area clean. However, the borough council and school officials believe the project students’ grassroots effort will be the most effective way to keep the area neat and clean.
