4/19/2016 - Mayor Nominates Long-Time Local Business Owner to Hamilton Township Zoning Board Position

Mayor Nominates Long-Time Local Business Owner to Hamilton Township Zoning Board Position

To fill a vacant position with the Hamilton Township Zoning Board, Mayor Kelly Yaede has nominated a long-time local business owner with strong ties to the community.

Yaede has nominated Hamilton resident Michael Gerstnicker to fill the currently vacant Alternate #2 member position on the Township Zoning Board of Adjustment.

Gerstnicker, who currently is a real estate professional with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, has a long and distinguished business career noted by his past ownership of Gersh’s Place and Good Times Tavern in Trenton, as well as past ownership of local construction company, Peter Giancola & Sons, Inc.

In addition, Gerstnicker has long demonstrated strong involvement in the Hamilton community, serving as a bookkeeper for the Ancient Order of Hibernians – Monsignor Crean Division #1, located in Hamilton, and was previously a coach for both Hamilton P.A.L. (Police Athletic League) Girls Basketball and the Hamilton Girls Softball Association (H.G.S.A.).     

“As a long-time Hamilton resident with deep community roots, I welcome this opportunity to use my business and real estate background to help serve our township as a member of the Zoning Board,” says Gerstnicker.  “I thank Mayor Yaede for nominating me for this position and, if approved, look forward to serving our community to the best of my abilities.”

“Michael is a well-qualified candidate, who possesses knowledge of both the issues that businesses face, as well as a background in real estate,” explains Mayor Yaede.  “I believe his qualifications and experiences would greatly contribute to the ongoing duties of the Township Zoning Board.”

Gerstnicker’s nomination will be presented to the Township Council for final approval this evening.

The Hamilton Township Zoning Board of Adjustment is an autonomous body that, in accordance with State Land Use Law, reviews applications requiring use variances from township Zoning Ordinances, such as for unapproved land uses for a specific zone of the community, inconsistencies for property site plans, request for subdivisions, or relief from flood plain requirements.
