River Rescue, Dog Park, Leak Allegation Tops Teaneck News
A review of the week's top stories in Teaneck
A long-shuttered area of Phelps Park could become a dog run after council members asked the township manager to explore the cost and scope of converting the space.
A carwash employee from Teaneck and an unidentified man pulled a woman from her sinking car after the vehicle plunged into the Hackensack River at a carwash Sunday afternoon, according to witnesses and authorities at the scene.
The Township Council is exploring a proposal to form a volunteer group to aid public works crews in maintaining local parks.
Councilman Mark Schwartz likened the proposal to New York City’s Central Park Conservancy, where volunteers help with work ranging from landscape maintenance to litter pick up.
A judge has found probable cause to move ahead with a complaint by a longtime political foe of Teaneck’s deputy mayor, in which she accuses the now-Congressional candidate of leaking confidential information about her to the media.
