Mayor Paul Medany’s Monthly Message - March 2018
Welcome Spring! Our newsletter will be coming to you soon. In there you will find information on spring cleanup and other municipal services. Township Council will be introducing the municipal budget this month. As always our fiscal policy is to keep our share of the tax burden stable. Keep in mind that your tax bill includes School District tax, Fire District Tax, County Government tax and our library levy.
With the tragedy in Florida the conversation must include public safety and of the utmost importance is safe schools for our children. Make your voice heard nationally, by writing or calling your congressman and senators, whichever side you are on in the gun debate. Your elected officials need to hear from you. Here in Deptford our Police force is one of the best equipped and highly trained forces in the region. They received their accreditation four years ago by proving to the committee that our training, equipment and personnel are rated one of the best.
Very few, if any, local municipalities do the amount of infrastructure improvements on yearly basis that we do. This includes repaving roads, replacing and installing new water mains and sewers lines. Our plan is to do whole neighborhoods with these improvements. It makes sense instead of doing it piecemeal. Our plan also involves replacing aging vehicles on a rotating basis, renovating our buildings and constructing recreation and playground areas plus much more.
Don’t forget to look for youth league signups. Get involved in Little League and Deptford Girls Softball. Look for our adult league signups also.
Township Council looks forward to seeing you at one of upcoming events including recreation league opening days coming soon.
Mayor Paul Medany
