Mayor Paul Medany’s Monthly Message - June 2017
The first day of summer is right around the corner and as usual Deptford Township is in full event mode. Thank You to all who attended our Memorial Day Celebration at the Veterans Park honoring our heroes. Next up is family movie and camp out night at Fasola Park on Friday June 2nd. Please keep checking the event calendar on the website. We would love to see you at the next event.
Council’s road and maintenance program is underway. We are constantly performing municipal improvements to maintain and install new roads, playgrounds, equipment and much more. There is a visible difference in our community. Our vacant stores are full; community service is on litter patrol every week. Senior services and events are greatly improved and all this as Council just passed the local budget with no local tax increase. Council has done a fantastic job of moving Deptford forward. We ask all of you to get involved in the school district. Any Municipality in the state or Country is directly affected by the largest spending portion of your tax bill and that is the school district. You should be aware that school board is an elected body and they are accountable, just as Council is, to you the residents. Education is the most important function of society. You have an important voice in the process. Educate yourself about what your District is doing.
There is so much to talk about and we are working every day to keep improving. You should have received our newsletter last week with all municipal information.
Have a great June and we will see you soon.
