I want to thank everyone who supported the annual Memorial Day Parade last Monday.  It was extremely well attended and a fitting tribute to those brave men and women who sacrificed so much for our community, state, nation and world.

Summer hours have begun!  Late night Thursdays/early dismissal on Fridays…

Don’t forget to vote in the June primary on Tuesday the 3rd!  Polls are open from 6am-8pm.

Morris Lake was 2 inches above the top of the spillway on 5.26.14.

Pool repairs are continuing to progress.  The majority of the piping in the filter room is completed.

The Town received the USDA letter of conditions for the Fox Hollow Lake Project.  The total loan amount is projected to be $839,000 and the grant amount will be $361,000.  My thanks to HPA and Debi for their efforts on same!

More good news! - The grant amount received from the State of NJ for the Trinity Street road paving project was $125,000.

I met with the owners of the G&H property to discuss their future plans for same.

The tours and meetings with Councilman-elect Levante went very well yesterday.  We look forward to his participation as part of the Governing Body.

A reminder to complete your Financial Disclosure Forms (if applicable) by the June deadline.

Enjoy your weekend!  Let’s Go Rangers!  Stanley Cup!

Yours for a Better Newton,
