The $265,928 Downtown Millburn Development Alliance 2013 budget was approved Tuesday night at Millburn's Township Committee meeting. The initial budget was presented at the Feb. 5 meeting by DMDA's current president Gina Colabelli and past president John Buchholz. The budget came in only $9,000 more than last year's $256,060 figure, even with an increase in sidewalk sweeping and maintenance. In the Feb. 5 meeting it was reported, sweeping and maintenance went up to $15,000 from last year's $3,750. Committeeman Thomas McDermott also noted in the February meeting the DMDA saved $65,000 because of a reorganization.

Monday, February 25

Tim Gordon discusses his role in town, what's in store for Millburn and a little bit about himself.
This week, Business Administrator Tim Gordon sat down to tell the Patch the issues he’s seen in Millburn and why he's spent the last 28 years working in town. Gordon also told the Patch a little bit about himself so residents could get to know who's working in town hall for them. The Patch: How would you describe a normal day? Gordon: There aren’t any normal days. You could have you day planned out, working on various projects and something may happen that will cause you to drop that and move onto something else. Local government is what I call the retail version of government. Because people walk in and they expect to see you right away. If somebody comes in, that they perceive as a pressing problem, it's just as easy to meet with them …

Because of budgetary constraints, the Millburn Library will be closed on Sundays all summer.
Because of continued budgetary constraints, the Millburn Free Public Library will be closed on Sundays from June 24 through September 30. The reduction in hours is the result of three years of shrinking budgets from the Township, says Library Director William Swinson. "Despite both high circulation in 2011 (249,934 transactions) and high attendance (236,013 visits), the Library can no longer maintain service-as-usual," Swinson said.

Since 2010, Swinson said, the township has funded the Library at the minimum state-mandated level based on equalized valuation. During that time, Millburn’s equalized valuation has been declining. In 2010 Library …
