Two ordinances will also be introduced:

- Adopt Juneteenth as a recognized holiday for International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 469, and United Public Service Employees Union. This is to coincide with the Township’s recognition of Juneteenth as a holiday, and to ensure the union employees get the same holiday off as the non-union employees.
- Approve Alcoholic Beverage Licenses for a period of one year, expiring on June 30, 2023.
- Authorize the purchasing of certain goods and services through the use of Regional Cooperative Purchasing, for Tilcon New York, Inc for the estimated amount of $300,000. This is for our 2022 COOP road paving projects.
