All items were passed, 5-0 (Councilman Justin DiPisa was not in attendance) except for 149 and 150, as Councilman Stephen Reyngoudt abstained due to working in the liquor industry.

During the open public session, a question from Jarret Cooke, Hasbrouck Heights PBA delegate, was asked concerning the change to the prescription plan.   Borough Administrator Michael Kronyak explained that the action was taken as he was informed late last week that the Borough was informed that their prescription plan carrier, Gerber Life, was not going to renew their policy for 2021. (Gerber Life is getting out of that line of insurance.)  

Kronyak stated he has not been formally informed by Gerber Life yet, but he wanted to make sure the employees were covered for 2021, which is why he signed the Hasbrouck Heights employees up for the Employee Prescription Drug Program offered by the New Jersey State Health Benefits Act.   

The next meeting of the Council will be October 13 at 7 pm.
