"It's great to recognize their hard work," said Mayor Stack.
In addition, the players were also awarded individual citations for their accomplishments, and Head Coach Andrew Morano was given special congratulations by the mayor and the board. Coach Morano, who is a second generation coach at Emerson, has also been named Coach of the Year in by the Hudson County Athletic Association. His father, Hank Morano, was coach from 1962 to 1988.
The meeting, held at Emerson High School, was the first regular Commissioners meeting of Union City for this month, which is open to the public. Mayor Brian Stack and the Board of Commissioners convened to discuss general matters, and update residents on current projects in the city. The public, as always, were welcomed to share opinions on these matters and bring other concerns to table.
After general and routine business on the agenda was taken care of with little objection, the board voted on each subject and moved to continue the meeting.
At the close of the meeting the public was introduced to the new electronic voting machine for the upcoming election. A presentation was made by John Hagens, investigator and instructor for the Hudson County Superintendent of Elections.
After the presentation the public was invited to ask questions and try out the machine.
Liquor license disciplinary hearings scheduled for that night had to be postponed due to lack of legal representation.
The next Commissioners meeting will be held at Robert Waters School, 29th Street and Summit Avenue, on Tuesday, April 20. Construction plans throughout the town will be discussed, and a public hearing will be held for the city's budget plan.
