BOE, Council Meet Monday

As luck would have it, two special meetings will take place Monday.

One is the Board of Education meeting at 7 p.m. in the Plainfield High School Library, originally scheduled to discuss the contract of incoming Superintendent Steve Gallon III. As described on the district web site, other business now includes taking action on "recommendations of theSupt., C&I, Finance, Human Resources, Policy, and Bldgs & Grnds."

The other was supposed to be a City Council special meeting to deal with liquor license renewals. About a dozen license holders failed to receive state clearance on tax obligations by the last regular council meeting on June 16. Those who have since been cleared by the state will most likely be approved Monday and all others will have to take out day-to-day licenses at extra expense and trouble until they are cleared.

But the June 20 legal notice tacks on another matter, the approval of a contract agreement between the Kings Temple Community Development Corp., the New Jersey Redevelopment Authority and the city. Details were not available from City Hall Friday, so Plaintalker can't say for sure whether the agreement involves a long-pending deal for Kings Temple to redevelop a bunch of formerly city-owned properties. Plaintalker will check Monday on which properties are involved.

The City Council meeting is 8 p.m. in City Hall Library.

Now that Plainfield has a cadre of bloggers, maybe we can cover and report on both meetings.

As always, the public is invited and encouraged to come out to see your elected officials in action.
