The Montclair Council made one of the first public actions to carry out the transition of the defunct Montclair Parking Authority to the township.
The council voted to hire a supervisor officer who will take control of parking enforcement in town starting Jan. 1, 2013. The salary range will be between $35,100 and $42,021.
The council unanimously dissolved the parking authority on Dec. 4, and the newly created Montclair Parking Utility will take command of the town's parking at the start of the new year.
“These provide the ordinances to pay ... salaries,” said Business Manager Marc Dashield. “... We will be re-evaluating the whole program in the next 90 days or so."
While the township did not compare the salary range with other municipalities, Dashield said the figures were reflective of current salaries in the town.
The transition is expected to take until March, said Dashiled previously, as the township transfers contracts and personnel, and lays out a plan for how best to run the utility.
Additional agenda items concerning the utility will be proposed at the next council conference meeting for a vote, said Dashield.
