As a member of our community of over 20 years and actively involved in town activities. I find it very easy to support the change in our Open Space Ordinance for the following reasons: It freezes all the money in the current account to be used for what the voter intended. It does not increase taxes. It broadens the use of the fund to benefit the entire community. It gives our town council the ability to make decisions year after year to protect our land and upgrade many recreation facilities that we all use. Our town is at another cross road of improvement. With the simple change of adding purposes to the word “recreation” to the current Open Space Ordinance it will have a lasting benefit for all of our residents.. Please vote yes on the changes to the West Milford Open Space, Recreation, Farmland and Historic Preservation Trust Ordinance.
