The event will honor the town’s military personnel, Haddonfield Police Department, Haddonfield Auxiliary Police, Haddon Fire Company №1 and American Legion Post 38 with special promotions.

For the event, the Partnership will provide real estate-style signs, balloon bouquets in front of participating stores, outdoor entertainment such as live music, a face painter and a balloon artist, recruiter tents for the military, police, fire department and other authorized vendors, and various food vendors.

“What they will do is they will have some balloon bouquets and outdoor entertainment. They’ll be honoring folks in the police department, fire department, American Legion and our armed forces. There will be some recruiter tents and some information about those things…. Just an appreciation day for those folks they’d like to honor and use it as an event to get people to come downtown. Seems like a nice event…it will be the first time that we try it,” Mayor Jeff Kasko said.

Commissioners also authorized the release of a performance bond for the Grove Street Utility Improvements Program for $1.9 million.

Prior to the recommended release of the performance bond, the borough engineer recommended the activation of the maintenance bond in the amount of $1.4 million to be held for a period of two years in case anything unexpected comes up.

This performance bond was for the utility work the borough did last year on Grove Street while it still owned the system. The work that is being done now is being conducted by New Jersey American Water.

According to Commissioner John Moscatelli, there are other parts NJAW wanted to do and take care of before the county repaves the road.

“This is releasing the performance bond, meaning that the work is done, and the maintenance bond will kick in, in case we have any issues going forward,” Moscatelli said.

The roadwork done by the county will take about six months to complete. Residents and drivers should see the work begin around July.
