Weehawken enters shared services agreement with library

The township also accepted a grant for its D.A.R.E. program

The Weehawken Township Council meets in-person and remotely every other week.

The Township Council has voted unanimously to enter into a shared services agreement with the Weehawken Public Library. Mayor Richard Turner explained that the agreement loaned the library the services of the township’s labor attorney. The idea is to help the library as it overhauls Human Resources.

“The library has to update all their HR materials,” Turner said. “So we’re going to loan them the services without any extra costs of the town labor attorney.”

The rather dry meeting was mostly taken up by a Rent Leveling Board meeting, which is the same as the Township Council. However, of note, the council also approved a resolution to accept a $1,349 in grant funds.

The township council voted to accept the Weehawken Municipal Alliance grant. According to Turner, it’s for the Weehawken’s D.A.R.E. program.

The council voted unanimously to approve both resolutions. The next Weehawken council meeting will be held on May 25 at 7 p.m. both in person and with remote viewing options. For more information, go to weehawken-nj.us.
