Bob Beinecke presents the 2015 Montclair Township budget at the April 14 Montclair Township Council meeting.

Bob Beinecke presents the 2015 Montclair Township budget at the April 14 Montclair Township Council meeting.

The Montclair Township Council introduced the 2015 municipal budget at its April 14 meeting.  In contrast to the sweeping presentations given by former Township Manager Marc Dashield, the 2015 budget introduction, given by financial advisor Bob Beinecke on behalf of Acting Township Manger Tim Stafford and Mayor Robert Jackson, was shorter and very much to the point.

Beinecke announced a spending plan of $79,996,438, a 2.3 percent increase from 2014, with the biggest portion of the increase — $600,000 — going toward snow removal for the coming winter.  The increases in the budget would be financed from $617,000 in surplus funds  generated in 2014 in addition to $2,408,946 in surplus as anticipated revenue, for a total surplus revenue figure of $3,025,000.  Beinecke recommended that this $3,025,000 be used to support the budget for 2015.

SunSmartest Town in America

Montclair has been named the “SunSmartest Town in America,” making it the first multi-component SunSmart community in the Nation, and a model program for other cities and towns to emulate.

The designation is based on a set of priorities outlined by then-Acting US Surgeon General, RADM Boris Lushniak MD MPH in his July 2014 Call to Action on Skin Cancer Prevention which made sun smart behavior a public health issue. Dr. Lushniak will be in Montclair on Monday, May 4 (Melanoma Monday) to provide a keynote address and celebrate this fine distinction with the Montclair community. A special celebration open to the public will take place at the Montclair Art Museum that evening:

SunSmart City Celebration
Monday, May 4 from 6 pm – 9 pm
Montclair Art Museum – Leir Hall, 3 South Mountain Avenue, Montclair, NJ, 07042
Cocktails, Vittles, Interactive Displays, DJ and Live Entertainment, SunSmart Fashion Show, Bronzing Bar, Live and Silent Auction
Cocktail Reception Tickets: $50 person / VIP Meet & Greet: $150 person (begins at 5:30 and includes the Cocktail Reception) Purchase tickets online here

Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States. It is one of the most preventable cancers, and the most preventable cause of skin cancer is exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays like those emitted from the sun. Further, skin cancer is highly curable when detected early, making early intervention a key component to survival. Some people are at higher risk of skin cancer than others, but we are all susceptible regardless of age, gender, color or ethnicity.

The Surgeon General’s report defines a public health agenda with recommendation for five key goals around which we have developed strategies to bring his Call to Action to life:
