As spring has flown by with temperatures below normal and above normal wet season, it has been difficult for public works to finish getting all our flowers planted in our Municipal court yard and our downtown neighborhood. Public works and the engineering department is in full swing preparing for all our roads’ overlays. In addition, public works has over 100 storm catch basins to be raised or repaired for the new road paving program. As well the Engineering department is working on all the designs and bid specs. I am pleased to inform everyone as well that Warren has been selected to receive funding from the New Jersey Department of transportation (NJDOT) Fiscal Year 2019 Municipal Aid Program for Old Sterling Road Project in the amount of $340,000, thanks to our engineer Christian Kastrud’s very creative application.
I’d like to thank the recreation department for getting all our summer sports and camp programs in full swing. It’s always exciting to see all the young children at the playground programs and team camp programs, especially the little kids camp, Lego camp and theater camp, to only be young again.
We are working with Somerset County walk, bike and hike study program. They had their second meeting in April to study the framework and network of multi-use trail, paths and Infrastructure in connecting vibrant communities together.
I’d like to congratulate Chief William Kean and the whole police department for once again completing the NJ State Accreditation program. Also, the new drug and prescription disposal program will allow residents to dispose of medications to the proper authorities. The disposal box is located right at police department reception area, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to call our police department at 908-753-1000.
I’d like to thank all the non-profit organizations that support our Warren Township community, Blue Ridge Sportsman Club, Lions Club, Wagner Farm and Warren Chamber of Commerce. I’d also like to thank all the volunteers that sit on boards and commissions, as well as congratulating the green team for their successful Green Day Fair.
I would like to continue to remind everyone to support all our local businesses in our community, let us not forget a thriving community depends on thriving businesses doing well. I want to wish everyone a happy and fun summer!
With Kindest Regards,
Mayor Gary P. DiNardo
Deputy Mayor Mic Marion
