This portion of the work includes the south side of West Prospect from Harrison to Franklin Turnpike. Borough officials have opted to begin on the south side of the street as there have been a number of inquiries regarding development on the north side. The business owners who will be affected by the installation of the six new lights have already provided their approval of the work. At present, the borough engineer is drawing up plans for the foundations and conduits. Once the plans are ready, that portion of the project will be put out for bids from contractors. The element of this project will be carried out by Public Service Electric & Gas, which will mount the lights and complete the hookups. The borough’s part of this project could be finished by the end of this year. PSE&G’s work could then take place in the spring of 2010. The Waldwick Community Alliance plans to add new pavers in this area, and will work on the sidewalks where repairs are needed. Councilwoman Anita Bozzo said she would like to see the project move forward. She pointed out that the first phase of the lighting improvements has made a pleasant difference in terms of aesthetics, and she wants to encourage future phases of these upgrades. Students at Crescent School in Waldwick enjoyed a Back to School Bash to celebrate the start of the new school year. The students enjoyed a night of dancing, pizza, and ice cream. They’re back!
