Ho-Ho-Kus September 30, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 9 Council approves Eagle project, community service The Ho-Ho-Kus Borough Council last week gave its approval to a community service project and to an Eagle Scout candidate’s project. Jennifer Mata, a resident of Clearwater Drive, told the council that the group of 12year-old boys in her catechism class would like to participate in a fall cleanup at the cemetery behind the Veterans of Foreign Wars building on Cliff Street. Mata told the governing body that VFW Commander Stanley Kober has already expressed his willingness to oversee the cleanup on an upcoming Saturday afternoon. Mata’s son, Donald, then asked the council for approval of his Eagle Scout project, which includes the renovation of the area around the VFW’s flagpole and cannon. The Boy Scout said the project would be done in honor of the veterans. Commenting on the work, he said he would create a seven-foot planting bed that would incorporate Belgian blocks, shrubs, and perennials. Donald also indicated that he would fundraise to pay for the work on the site. Jennifer Mata noted that council approval is required before the project is submitted to the Boy Scout Council. “It’s a wonderful tribute to the VFW,” Councilwoman Maryellen Lennon told the Matas. Councilman John Mongelli asked the Scout about recruiting volunteers to work on the landscaping renovation. Donald said he did not anticipate any difficulty in recruiting aid for the project, noting that his fellow Boy Scouts need to log service hours to work up to their own Eagle candidacy. The Eagle Scout Award is the highest honor a Boy Scout can receive. The council agreed to the cleanup and the landscaping work. J. CRUSCO Atlas Iron Works to build and install firehouse stairs Atlas Iron Works, LLC of West Main Street in Wyckoff, has received the contract for the fabrication and installation of the exterior stairs at the Ho-Ho-Kus Firehouse. The award, which was made by a Ho-HoKus Council resolution at last week’s public session, calls for a contract in the amount of $15,624. According to the resolution, four companies expressed interest in the bidding process, but only two provided proposals. EBS Steel Fabrications, Inc. of Paterson, the other company that responded to the call for quotations, submitted a bid of $16,400; Victor Iron Works and Vandermeyde Welding & Iron Work, Inc. did not provide quotes. The document also states that the borough engineer reviewed the two bids and recommended the award by made to Atlas Iron Works, “whose response is most advantageous, price and other factors considered.” Ho-Ho-Kus Mayor Thomas Randall and Borough Clerk Laura Borchers are, by virtue of the approved resolution, authorized to execute the contract with Atlas Iron Works following legal review. However, the quote from EBS Steel Fabrications will be held pending the execution of the contract with Atlas. J.
