ENGLEWOOD, N.J. -- Englewood Mayor Frank Huttle was sworn to his second term Tuesday night, and Charles Cobb joined the governing body as the new councilman-at-large.

Huttle was sworn in by his wife, Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle, using a family Bible the mayor said was from his mother’s family, and more than 100 years old.

Cobb succeeded popular Councilwoman Lynn Algrant, who is now the CEO of the Bergen Volunteer Center.

Wayne Hamer, Fourth Ward councilman, was elected council president and Marc Forman, council president pro-tem.

Huttle called on the city to “harness technology” to keep their retail district competitive, and enable them to hold their own against increasing internet sales.

High-tech parking facilities will also enhance the city’s downtown, the mayor said.

“Englewood with all its assets is uniquely positioned among all towns in this county to grow,” Huttle said.

Councilman Eugene Skurnick, a veteran public servant in Englewood opined that the city needs the advice of qualified professionals to chart its economic future.

He also said that the Economic Development Commission “is not equipped to handle the situation as it once did.” He called for an economic master plan for Englewood.

Forman emphasized recreational facilities, and outlined a bold vision for further enhancing MacKay Park and making it the leisure activity center of the city.
