ROXBURY, NJ – Township officials are planning another round of increases to many fees charged by the Roxbury Recreation Department, including Horseshoe Lake beach passes.

The fee hikes are an effort to “counterpoise” increasing costs, especially those being driven by changes to the minimum wage, according to a memo from Roxbury Recreation Director Brett Douglas.

The new 2023 fee structure ordinance was introduces Tuesday by the Roxbury Mayor and Council with final adoption slated to take place Dec. 13 after a public hearing.

The fee increases were reviewed and endorsed this summer by the Roxbury Recreation Advisory Committee.

“This review originally was started for the purpose of reanalyzing each program … to fundamentally set an appropriate fee for the new turf field that was installed in 2019 and other fees that needed updating,” Douglas wrote in the Oct. 28 memo to Roxbury Township Manager John Shepherd.

He said that “a very close look has been taken to dissect all aspects of each program and facility,” in his department, adding the proposed new fee recommendations “are to best help counterpoise the costs that are being driven up because of the changes in minimum wage in the state of New Jersey.”

Roxbury Councilman Fred Hall said he and Roxbury Councilman Shawn Potillo “spent an enormous amount of time” analyzing the recreation fees and proposed increases. “I’m all for this,” he said.

“There was a lot of time spent on it,” said Potillo. “I’m happy with what we got out of it, and I’m happy we’re moving forward with it.

If approved on second reading, the new ordinance will bring the following fee increases:

Basketball: The per-player fee, now $90, will increase to $95. The travel team fee, now $65, will increase to $70. The boys high school age team, now $110 per player will go up to $115.

Beach Membership: The resident family fee, now $160, will increase to $165. The nonresident family fee, now $320, will go up to $330. The adult resident fee, now $60, will increase to $65. The nonresident adult fee, now $120, will go up to $130. The resident child fee, now $35, will increase to $40. The nonresident child fee, now $70, will increase to $80.

Camp Capra, now $215 per participant per week, will increase to $240 per participant per week.

Fishing will see no fee increases, but the age to qualify for free fishing as a senior citizen, now 62, will become 63.

Football, now $200 per player, will increase to $210 per player. The township also plans to offer rugby with an $80 per player fee.

Day Camp, now $265 per participant for a week, will increase to $275.

Street hockey, now $80, will go up to $85.

Summer playground – a “very popular camp due to its 5-week, camp half-day structure of time for families throughout the summer” – will go up by $15 to $265 per camper.

Swimming, now $100 per swim team participant, will increase to $110. One week of swimming lessons, now $35, will increase to $40. Two weeks of lessons, now $50, will go up to $55. Three weeks, now $65, will cost $70.

Volleyball, now $65 per individual, will go up to $70.

Wrestling will see an increase of $5 per wrestler for the clinic, novice and team memberships. Clinic will cost $50; novice will cost $80; team will cost $95.

In his memo to Shepherd, Douglas asserted that fees charged by neighboring municipalities for their similar programs tend to be “much higher” than Roxbury’s.

State Might Fund Extending Town Water to Homes Near Old Dump, say Roxbury Officials

ROXBURY, NJ – Instead of paying to install expensive filters in Ledgewood homes with wells possibly being contaminated by the former Fenimore Landfill, the state is likely to instead fund the extension of municipal water lines, Roxbury officials said on Tuesday.

The state Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) is currently investigating the extent of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) in the wells of homes near the dormant dump. It said the substances were recently found in the groundwater beneath the landfill.

PFAS have already been found in some private wells near Fenimore. The NJDEP, hoping to determine the extent of the problem, recently sent letters to 40 residences offering free water tests.

On Tuesday, Roxbury officials said the NJDEP will soon send out another batch of similar letters to even more residents.

“If the results of NJDEP’s sampling show your well contains any contaminants above allowable limits, the NJDEP will provide your family with bottled water and immediately evaluate remedial measures,” said the state in the first group of letters. Those remedial measures could include installing water filtration systems.

However, at Tuesday’s meeting of the Roxbury Township Council, both Roxbury Mayor Jim Rilee and Roxbury Township Attorney Anthony Bucco - who is also a state senator - said the state might decide the better route would be to fund the extension of Roxbury’s municipal water lines to the affected areas.

“I spoke to them,” said Bucco. “They’re still in the process of getting information back in … The individual treatment systems that they’ll need to install are quite expensive. DEP does not want to go down the road of putting in treatment systems at each individual residence. So, they want eventually to have the water brought in.”

Before that can happen, the state must conduct the water tests “to see the extent of the problem,” he noted. Bucco and Rilee said the township is compiling information for the NJDEP about the location of the water mains and cost estimates for expanding them.

“Once all that information comes together, I have a feeling that, if a lot of these residential homes come up positive, the DEP is going to look to extend the water line versus installing individual treatment systems at every single residence,” Bucco added.

The first round of residential water tests is planned for the week of Dec. 12, according to the NJDEP.

For many years, one resident of the area, Vietnam War veteran Bob Mederos, has been passionately urging town officials to safeguard residents from chemicals dumped at the landfill for decades. On Tuesday, he said he’s pretty sure the landfill has impacted his health.

“Part of the illnesses of this contaminant is leukemia,” he said. “I did not have leukemia two years ago. I have it now. So, I’m considering that I got it from this water … I survive Vietnam, but I’m not going to survive Roxbury’s water.”

ROXBURY, NJ - The Windlass restaurant on Lake Hopatcong was almost overflowing on the evening of Nov. 16 with cheerful people, many wearing masks, at the Roxbury Library Foundation's second annual fundraising gala.

Every available seat was taken, and organizers said they could have sold at least 70 more tickets had there been more seats available. The gathering raised money for a future expansion of the library.

“We are thrilled to report we raised $87,000 for the Roxbury Library Foundation -- thanks to the generosity of many sponsors and guests,” said Roxbury Library Director Radwa Ali the next day.

The Foundation, created last year, hopes to accumulate $3.5 million in five to seven years. The goal is to be able to then receive a matching state grant enabling it to fund a $7 million, 5,300-square-foot expansion and update of the library. Last year’s gala raised about $60,000 for the Foundation.

The Foundation announced the creation of a “Give Every Month” or “GEM” program through which people can make monthly, recurring donations ranging from $10 per month to $100 per month. More information about the GEM program can be found here.

During the evening, Ali, Roxbury Rotary Club member Steve Alford, Roxbury Councilman Bob DeFillippo and his wife, Morris County Commissioner Kathy DeFillippo, thanked all the companies and individuals who donated money.

A special tribute, including the showing of videotaped interviews, was paid to library volunteers Ronald DeFilippis, Janet Rose and Jennifer Wasek. DeFilippis represented the Foundation, Rose represented the Friends of Roxbury Public Library and Wasek represented the Roxbury Public Library Trustees.

“The honorees … have given countless hours to benefit the Roxbury Public Library and all those who use it,” said Bob DeFillippo. “Their time and dedication of leading by example has allowed this library to expand its services, run most efficiently, offer more robust programs and help the library delight our residents with programs and services you don’t see at other public libraries in our area.”

During her turn at the microphone, Ali stressed that the library is for people of all walks of life.

“We are an educational, economic and a social lifeline for our community,” she said. “When there are so many things in the world that divide us, the library can be a beacon that unites us.”

TAPinto Roxbury was a media sponsor of the gala.

To help families fighting cancer and mitigate the costs that come with these diagnoses, the DMCCF hosts four annual fundraising events with the 100% of the proceeds going directly to the individuals and families during their battle with cancer. To date the DMCCF have donated more than $1.7 million and set a goal to reach over $2 million in the next two years.
