Pianese explained the details of the budget by reviewing a 10-page presentation for the board and residents on hand, touching on a variety of topics including employee/union health benefits and more building permits being purchased to increase revenue.

Sacco noted that the budget is especially impressive given that state aid to North Bergen is on a declining trend.

Pianese also pointed out that although the township had a $8.8 million surplus to utilize, only $2 million were needed to balance the budget. Speaking with Hudson County View, Sacco said the budget is “nearly perfect.”
