Phillipsburg bids farewell to zoning board

PHILLIPSBURG, N.J. - Phillipsburg's Zoning Board of Adjustment could soon be a thing of the past.

The Town Council introduced an ordinance that dissolves the board and gives its duties to the town's planning board. Officials say the planners can handle essentially every matter that comes before the zoning board.

"Shared services and consolidation is everything we need to do in the 21st century," said Council President Todd Tersigni.

Also Tuesday, council approved payments to two local contractors who helped with snow removal during one of the town's snow emergencies last month.

The emergency was declared on Feb. 12, which meant the town couldn't bid the work.

Payments were approved to W. Dowd Excavating of Wind Gap for $13,050 and All Image Asphalt of Stewartsville for $12,397.

Mayor Harry Wyant noted that this winter had featured more snow emergencies than in recent memory, and thanked the Phillipsburg police for helping remind residents to move their cars off snow emergency routes.
