Mayor Paul Medany’s Monthly Message - April 2021
Spring is here along with so many encouraging and exciting things to talk about. Covid vaccines are ramping up every day. The warmer weather is here and with it comes outdoor activities. We just completed our annual Rutgers certification class for volunteers in all youth sports organizations. Mayor Medany and Little League President Don Bozuffi are both certified instructors and over 60 coaches attended this class. Events are being scheduled so please keep checking our website for information.
We are pleased and proud to announce Deptford Council has introduced a ZERO local tax increase budget. You will read more about this in the upcoming newsletter. The Finance committee, Councilman Lamb and Barnshaw worked with the administration to provide this much needed relief to our Property tax payers. This past year has been a struggle for everyone and thru our five year planning process we are able to stay financially solid while giving you this relief.
As you know we have been awarded first place overall in the Statewide Municipal Information contest. This message, the newsletter, our weekly videos are all a part of getting you the information you need, you want, and demand as residents of our great community. We are proud of the work we do here and we want you to know where your tax dollars are going and the improvements we are always making to municipal services, to recreation, maintenance and so much more.
Our Public Safety Director in conjunction with Township council has announced our new initiative called Deptford Township on Patrol. We are very excited to announce this most unique program. It is a training program for every employee to help be on the lookout for any issues affecting the health, safety and welfare of our community. They will be trained to be aware of suspicious activities, code enforcement issues, road repairs, litter and much more. Keeping our community clean and safe is a must for all of us.
The Deptford School district just held their groundbreaking for a fantastic new addition to Deptford Middle School. Our School district is rapidly becoming one of the finest in the region. We have so much to talk about so keep looking for news on our social media pages, our new website and all the other messaging we provide. Stay safe, let’s get outside and we will see you soon!
