The foundation for the approval were first laid in March when the Elks approached the council about obtaining a club liquor license. At that time, the township had no mechanism to allow a club liquor license.
The council approved an ordinance for club liquor licenses in April, after which the Elks went to the state Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control for permission to get a license.
The resolution passed by the council Monday specifically awards a club liquor license to the Elks Lodge.
The club license will have a fee of $188, per state statute, a flat annual fee. The Elks must obey all state liquor laws.
The resolution passed without comment from members of the council or from the public.
Another resolution approved a contract for the township's 2013 road resurfacing project to Tilcon New York, Inc. under the Morris County Cooperative Purchasing Program.
The total cost of the project is $205,000. Under the project, the following roads will be resurfaced:
- Schoener Road
- Kahl Road south of Troy Road
- Lorie Drive
- Melrose Road
- Ridgewood Road
- Norwood Road
