Meetings in Motion

It's hard for people to attend public meetings in December, with so much holiday preparation and celebration going on. Now there are a number of meeting changes and additions to track.

- The Dec. 8 PMUA meeting has been rescheduled to 6 p.m. Dec. 15 at 127 Roosevelt Ave.

- The Dec. 3 Planning Board meeting was rescheduled to 7:30 p.m. at City Hall Library on Dec. 10, which puts it in conflict with the Third Ward Town Hall Meeting. That meeting was originally set for Oct. 27, then Nov. 12 before being moved tentatively to 7 p.m. Dec. 10 at Hubbard Middle School, with an alternate date of Dec. 17 in case of inclement weather. However, there is also a Planning Board meeting on Dec.17.

- Two liquor license hearings have been scheduled for Dec.  16. One is to discuss "possible charges and penalties" against the plenary retail consumption license identified as Chandri Inc., trading as The Latin Bar located at 664 South Avenue. The second hearing is to discuss a person-to-person transfer of a plenary retail consumption license identified as Jedeca Inc. trading as JC's Lounge to Liliana Lau LLC trading as La Reina Bar, which has been recommended for denial by the Police Division. According to the notice, the license was purchased at the state Division of Taxation Auction.

The changes, plus the previously noted special City Council meeting combining the Dec. 7, 14 and 21 meetings, will produce this schedule for the week before Christmas:

Dec. 14: 7 p.m. Special City Council Meeting in Municipal Court, 325 Watchung Ave.

Dec. 15: PMUA meeting, 6 p.m. at 127 Roosevelt Ave.

Dec. 16: Liquor License Hearings, 7 p.m. in City Hall Library, 515 Watchung Ave.

Dec. 17; Planning Board meeting, 7:30 p.m. in City Hall Library

Dec. 18: Keith Richards' birthday never mind


  1. I think you need to add back the Keith Richards celebration. At least there'd be music.


  2. Love your sense of humor about Keith Richards!
