Our next Town Council meeting will be Monday, April 14th at 7:00pm.

Morris Lake was 1 inch below the top of the spillway on 3.31.14. Restrictions will be lifted shortly.

There was a great turnout on Tuesday for the New Jersey 350 Pop-Up display ribbon-cutting at the Springboard Shoppes. Check out the display when you have a chance and visit for more information!

We had our first pre-production meeting for the ABC-TV program “Best of NJ”. As you know, Newton is the first and only NJ municipality to be highlighted on this television program. There will be one day of stakeholder interviews in May followed by a full-day of B-roll shooting. Onward and upward!

Been on Facebook lately? Of course you have! Make sure you check out the latest Newton marketing showcase – Additionally, for only a $100 investment, we were able to generate outreach to 13,712 people on FB. Talk about ROI!

At the Parking Authority meeting, we welcomed our newest member – Mr. James Ciaravolo. We look forward to his participation.

I met with Nanette this week to go over the 1st quarter results of her property maintenance endeavors. As the monthly reports will validate, she has been working diligently on these matters with Kathy and I appreciate both of them working aggressively on this Council priority.

Enjoy your weekend!

Yours for a Better Newton,
