Residents Asked For Input On Daily Paving Schedule

At Thursday┬ánight’s Mayor & Council meeting, an opportunity was provided to have Roselle Park residents on a section of Galloping Hill Road choose when to have paving performed in the spring of 2016.

Union County, the governing authority responsible for Galloping Hill Road – a county road – has offered the municipality the choice of whether the roadwork would be done during the day or at night.

The communication read:

The County plans to resurface Galloping Hill Road from Kimberly Road to Magie Avenue at night during the spring of 2016. Since night paving may be disturbing to local residences, the County will consider paving during the day provided the Borough requests a daytime schedule.

Mayor Carl Hokanson asked First Ward Councilman Eugene Meola and Councilman Joseph Petrosky to reach out to their constituents to ask what time of day they would prefer paving to be done.

Roselle Park residents along Galloping Hill Road just north of Reindel Place to Lincoln Avenue as well as the connecting side streets are asked to reach out to 2nd Ward Councilman Joseph Petrosky at (908) 666-7821 to let him know if they prefer paving to be done in the daytime or at night.

Mayor Hokanson said to the councilmen, “Reach out to find out if they want to do it day or night then try to get it back to the county as soon as possible.”

In accordance with the communique, the municipality will have to request a daytime schedule if a majority of residents request paving during the day.
