Dear Fellow Neighbors & Friends:
Happy New Year! Twenty eighteen proved to be a very productive year in Helmetta with a focus on community involvement and participation through programs and events, beautification and upkeep of building and grounds, distinct management of fiscal responsibilities and the fostering of a safe haven for all residents alike.
I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the dedicated team of employees and service providers whom work diligently to provide adequate services within the Borough. Longevity is a proven trait amongst these fine individuals; I commend and wholeheartedly appreciate their fine efforts.
Furthermore, I salute our police, fire and emergency service workers for their valiant labors in delivering superior public safety endeavors. I consider us quite fortunate to be blessed with the expertise and knowledge of these fine men and women; many of whom volunteer their valuable time.
I express gratitude to you, the residents, for continuing to entrust in me to advocate as your leader of our beautiful community; the small town with a big heart. Thank you for conveying your concerns and ideas throughout the year that ultimately benefit the community at large. As always, I encourage you to contact me at any time via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at (732) 521-4946 x116 or in person during Mayor’s Hours on Wednesday evenings from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Borough Hall. I welcome and encourage you to attend our monthly Council Meetings held the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at Borough Hall.
Our Public Works Department continues to work diligently to keep our community clean. Please do not hesitate to contact Paul Reed, Supervisor at email@example.com, with any questions, concerns or relevant work order requests.
The Community Center located at One Brookside Place is available for event rentals. Contact Sandy Bohinski, Borough Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org or (732) 521-4946 x100.
Looking into 2019, I remain confident the governing body will continue to explore great opportunity and constancy through positive and productive governance. As Eleanor Roosevelt says, “With the new day comes new strength and new things.” All the best of health, happiness and success in twenty nineteen!
Hope to see you throughout the year at the Helmetta Happenings listed on the reverse side!
Mayor Chris Slavicek
