Welcome to “Spring 2019”! We had a light winter when It came to snow and ice storms, compared to previous years. As always, we must thank Doug Buro of the public works department and all the employees, who have spent sleepless nights plowing and salting all our roads, so we were able to get out in the morning. Now that spring is upon us Public Works will once again start cleaning the roads, planting flowers along Mountain Boulevard to Beautify our downtown area.
We are now moved in and unpacked in our new Municipal complex for just over a year. The transition went smoothly, and everybody is comfortable in their new home, and ready to take care of the residents.
We have once again been named as one of the best places to live in New Jersey, and the second safest community in New Jersey for 2019. We are proud to have a fine dedicated police department under the leadership of Chief William Keane who ensures the safety of all Warren residents.
It is with a heavy heart to inform you that our long-time committeewoman Carrolann Garafola will be retiring, after 23 years of service. This is one of the most caring hard-working person you will ever meet. She has had a significant impact on my life, and on Warren Township. It has been an honor to work with her for over 19 years. I want to wish Carrolann and Ralph a happy retirement in Florida.
I want to thank our Recreation Dept. for the great job at our bond fire, it was a great turnout. I also like to remind everyone to sign up early for all our summer programs. I like to thank all the non-profit organization’s that support the Warren Township community, such as the Lions club, Wagner Farm, Warren chambers, and Blue Ridge sportsman club. I’d also like to thank all the volunteers that sit on boards and commissions, as well as congratulating the green team as we are getting a grant from the state for our new Electric car charging station.
I’d like to continue to remind everyone to support all our local businesses in our community, a thriving community depends on thriving businesses doing well. I want to wish everyone a healthy and happy Spring Season!
