Message from the Mayor - ERUV UPDATE
Release Date: July 19, 2017

If you follow Social Media, concerns from residents have spread from Upper Saddle River to Mahwah regarding the ERUV. An ERUV is a closed perimeter area of about 26 square miles. Please click on the following link for more information:  http://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/eruv

Click on the following link for a  list provided by O&R of every utility pole where the plastic pipes have been secured. (Click here:  Listing of Poles ) Advice by our attorney is that we cannot do anything about the installation of these plastic pipes on these utility poles establishing a ERUV. There are links below that may better help you understand some of the issues.

The Board of Public Utilities (BPU)  http://www.bpu.state.nj.us is the State of New Jersey public utility authority who has granted permission to this group to place the ½ plastic pipes for the purpose of a ERUV on Orange and Rockland (O&R) utility poles.  https://www.oru.com/en/contact-us

Normally, O&R does not allow anyone to place anything on their utility poles without permission but because of several Federal Law suits, both  BPU and O&R are obligated to allow these ERUV markings, But they have NO OBLIGATION to notify the municipality. The most recent litigation was in Tenafly NJ. http://www2.ca3.uscourts.gov/opinarch/013301.txt

These  markings  connect  Saddle  River  Road  and  East  Mahwah  road,  by  way  of  Airmount  Road, Airmont Ave, Masonicus Road and Sparrowbush Road and a left hand turn onto Saddle River Road.

The ERUV is not complete until the perimeter is complete. The municipalities, both Mahwah and
Upper Saddle River, did not receive any notice, nor could O&R deny the application.

I  realize  a  lot  of  information  is  circulating  around  town   and  some  of  it  may  be  concerning  to residents. I hope  we  have  provided  you  with  information  that  provides  an  understanding  of the  situation at hand. I, along with the Council, continue to explore options regarding this issue.  We will pass on any new information as we receive.

Regards,

Mayor Bill Laforet
