Secaucus is adding a number of time-restricted parking spaces on Paterson Plank Road.
The Town Council has recently adopted an ordinance adding the multiple time-restricted parking spaces on one of the main thoroughfares through town. The council voted to do so at its April 12 meeting.
Town Administrator Gary Jeffas explained the ordinance at the request of Mayor Michael Gonnelli when it was introduced at the March 22 council meeting.
“We have a new bagel shop at Huber Street and Paterson Plank Road,” Jeffas said. “This is just adding two fifteen-minute spots.”
In addition to the 15-minute timed spaces near the new J&V Hot Bagels and Deli, there will also be another time-restricted space across the street.
“The police reviewed it, and they’re taking a little space off of the fire house, the yellow at the fire house, because it was more than what was needed,” Jeffas said. “They’re adding a spot there. And they’re making another fifteen minute spot in front of the store, and one fifteen minute spot across the street in front of the apartment complexes there.”
According to Jeffas, the Traffic Division of the Police Department reviewed the changes and have given it the okay.
“The police looked at that and they felt it was doable,” Jeffas said. “And it would help the owners of that location out and the other stores in that area.”
The council voted unanimously to adopt the ordinance. The council will meet next on April 26 at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at Town Hall at 1203 Paterson Plank Road. For more information, go to secaucusnj.gov.
