Then Borough Administrator Mr. Edward Hynes announce that the Bogota Tax Assessor has identified the properties effected and will reduce their assessment to differ the economic loss suffered by the property owners.
 Then there were discussion on adding to Borough ordinaces to cover smoking of tobacco based, and cannabis-based products in, or on, Goverment owned spaces. Another was to update parking regulation on certain streets. After that the Council voted on the items on the agenda.  Most were passed by unanimous vote. One item was tabled, and another was passed by a 3-1 vote. Items of note were authorized the reconstruction of Palisade Ave from E.
