Mayor Paul Medany’s Monthly Message - May 2018
Spring is a little late and the warm weather is finally here. We have already kicked off our event season with our Red, White and Blue 5k Run/Walk and Nemours duPont Kid’s Fun Run. Little league, girls softball and soccer are well underway and we thank all of our volunteers who give their time for our young athletes.
We should mention more often the teamwork of our Municipal Government and employees. Deptford is fortunate to have terrific and dedicated employees at our township. They love their jobs but recognize that it is hard work and they strive to be the best at what they do for all of our residents.
Here in Deptford Township we are working on new things daily. Attracting new businesses, code enforcing our neighborhoods, litter patrols, planning and zoning issues, public safety and the list goes on. We are working every day to make Deptford the absolute best community.
Our Police Department and Police Chief are out every day staying involved in the community. They are not only protecting public safety, but they are proactive in interacting with our residents and children which is important for our community.
Township Council has created a great working relationship with our School District and School Board members to move our District forward. We are teaming up with Rowan at Gloucester County College to create college credit opportunities for our students. This collaboration will soon start students on their college path as young as sixth grade. Not every student is college bound so the opportunities for Trade careers and tech jobs are in the path as well.
There are so many goals in municipal government. Township Council knows that public safety, clean communities, great municipal services and especially a great school system are the keys to a great community. You are part of this team and together we are achieving our goals.
Have a great Spring and we hope to see you soon around town.
