Happy Valentine’s Day!

A friendly reminder that municipal offices are closed on Monday, February 15th in recognition of Presidents’ Day.

Our next Town Council meeting is Monday, February 22nd at 7:00pm.

Morris Lake was 30 inches below the top of the spillway on 2.8.16.

Another successful meeting with our CWA representatives regarding their contract. Our next session is in March.

Annual report submissions have been sent to Terri for the 2015 Annual Report.

I hosted my monthly staff meeting at Between the Bread this week. We wish Erin the best of success in her new endeavor.

We met with JCP&L and RPM representatives to discuss plans for the utility relocation for the Newton Town Centre Project.

I was re-elected to the position of Chairman of the Statewide Insurance Fund. It is an honor to serve as head of a group that works collaboratively on the insurance needs of almost 100 governmental entities in NJ.

My thanks to all staff members and volunteers who participated in the two days of budget hearings with the Town Council.

Have a great weekend! Stay warm!
Yours for a Better Newton,
