There are some familiar and new faces and names in Fair Haven borough business.
At last Monday’s Borough Council meeting, a Special Law Enforcement Officer Class I was promoted to Class II in the Fair Haven Police Department, a new full-time laborer was hired for a probationary period in the borough’s Department of Public Works and part-time seasonal laborer was brought into the same department.
By resolution, Police Chief Darryl Breckenridge recommended that Michael Volker be appointed to Special Law Enforcement Officer Class II.
The recommendation came along with a request, via resolution, to appoint a Special Law Enforcement Officer Class I to fill the spot vacated by Volker in his promotion.
Volker is filling the Special Class II spot left open when Robert Henne Jr., who passed away in March, was posthumously promoted to patrolman in the department.
The appointment of an as of yet unnamed Class I officer will become effective July 15.
Volker, a Fair Haven resident, is a Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School graduate. He is also a graduate of the Academy of Law and Public Safety, Long Branch.
His rate of pay for the Class II position is $16.75 per hour.
In Public Works, Matthew Rosenstreich was hired, via resolution, as a full-time laborer.
Rosenstreich, whose hiring is now in the probationary period, will earn an annual salary of $30,043.99.
The position was advertised on the borough’s and League of Municipalities’ website. Rosenstreich, who was deemed to best suit its qualifications, was interviewed by both the borough administrator, Theresa Casagrande and Richard Gardella, director of the borough’s Department of Engineering and Public Works.
Also hired as a part-time seasonal laborer in Public Works was Patrick Anderson, according to the resolution.
Anderson’s hours are not to exceed those of a part-time employee, according to the resolution, and his rate of pay is $11 per hour.
