Mayor Paul Medany’s Monthly Message - October 2021
October is the changing of the seasons but many things remain the same. We will be having two of our outstanding events this month. The Fall Festival at Deptford’s Andaloro Farm is on Saturday, October 9th. This festival is a huge hit and fun for the whole family with pumpkins, hayrides, live music, food trucks and craft beer. We will also have our Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat this year at the Deptford Recreation Center on Thursday, October 28th.
What else remains the same is Council’s commitment to you and our community. Municipal services become very visible this month. Leaf collection is one of our most challenging and busiest times of year. Look in the upcoming newsletter or on the website for your neighborhood’s schedule.
Our crews are completing cleanup from the Ida Hurricane Tornado. This was a massive cleanup effort and we thank the volunteers, the County, our own DPW crews and especially all the residents who pulled together to help each other. The weather is becoming much more challenging. We urge you to get an EAP (Emergency Action Plan) for you and your family. There is a guide on our website. Be prepared for emergencies.
Municipal government is a complex operation and our dedicated professionals at the Township, along with Township Council, work every day to ensure our community’s safety and success. These services cost money and Council has created a long-term budget plan that takes care of present needs along with looking towards the future. This year alone we crafted a zero local tax increase budget to get you tax relief.
Please support our local businesses especially with the holiday shopping season coming up. Council is doing a fantastic job of attracting new business and we will have some major announcements coming in October on the new business front. We hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events.
