HistoryEdit

The borough of Northvale was formed on March 15, 1916, from the remaining portions of Harrington Township, based on the results of a referendum held on April 4, 1916. With the creation of Northvale, Harrington Township was dissolved. Portions of Northvale were transferred to create the borough of Rockleigh, as of March 13, 1923.[20] The borough's name derives from its location and topography.[21]

GeographyEdit

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 1.298 square miles (3.362 km2), including 1.295 square miles (3.355 km2) of land and 0.003 square miles (0.007 km2) of water (0.20%).[1][2]

The borough borders Norwood, Old Tappan and Rockleigh in Bergen County and Tappan (in the Town of Orangetown) in Rockland County, New York.[22]

GovernmentEdit

Local governmentEdit

Northvale is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The governing body consists of a Mayor and a Borough Council comprising six council members, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. A Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The Borough Council consists of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year in a three-year cycle.[6] The Borough form of government used by Northvale, the most common system used in the state, is a "weak mayor / strong council" government in which council members act as the legislative body with the mayor presiding at meetings and voting only in the event of a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances subject to an override by a two-thirds majority vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.[33][34]

As of 2017, the Mayor of Northvale is Democrat Stanley E. "Ed" Piehler, whose term of office ends December 31, 2018. Members of the Borough Council are Council President Michael Small (D, 2019), Louis DeLisio (D, 2019), Toni M. Macchio (D, 2018), Ken Shepard (D, 2017), Roy Sokoloski (R, 2017) and Peter Sotiropoulos (R, 2018).[3][35][36][37][38][39]

In December 2015, the borough council selected Michael Small from a list of three candidates nominated by the Democratic municipal committee to fill the seat vacated by Gloria Libby, who had left office earlier that month to follow her employer, Mercedes-Benz USA, which had relocated its headquarters from Bergen County to Atlanta.[40]

In March 2014, Mayor Paul Bazela resigned from office after being convicted of theft in his role as operations manager for the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission, after a jury found that he had used PVSC employees to repair the homes of individuals connected to him. Then-Borough Council President Ed Piehler was chosen to succeed him as acting mayor.[41]
