GLEN ROCK, N.J.– An ordinance regarding Glen Rock's Thielke Arboretum's lease will not be introduced until Sept. 14, officials said.

"There is still some fine tuning to do so the first reading will not be until our next meeting," Mayor Bruce Packer said. "This was unavoidable and is not a function of anything but a little more time being needed."

The governing body shared a draft of the ordinance on the borough website "in the interest of transparency."

"It is subject to change... but the draft gives a good sense of what it will look like," the website states. "Changes will be posted as they occur."

The Arboretum, which is on Doremus Avenue, is a wetland forest with perennial, shade, azalea and grass gardens, lawns, and an allee of Kousa dogwood trees, according to the borough website.

The borough purchased the land on Doremus Avenue on Aug. 26, 1954 for $44,000. On May 19, 1963, it was renamed the Glen Rock Arboretum.

The ordinance was discussed at Monday's work session, Packer said.
