Borough Mayor

C249229D2010 01 01It looks like we are finally getting some summer weather! It is going to be another great summer in Wharton. The Library Summer Reading Program kicks off on June 14th and the Summer Recreation Program begins on July 5th. New this year is a free breakfast for children at the Summer Recreation Program and a free lunch for eligible children at the Library Summer Reading Program that is provided through the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. 

I am looking forward to another great Canal Day on August 19th. For more information about Canal Day 
click here

I am happy to say that in accordance with our continued focus on communication I am starting a monthly Mayor’s newsletter. The first copy will be mailed to every resident in town and you will have the option to sign up to receive email copies of future newsletters. We are also on twitter as @WhartonNJ and on 
facebook. Follow us for Borough information and updates. 

We also use the Everbridge notification system to provide residents with messages from the Borough about things such as emergencies, garbage collection changes, road closures, water service issues, Borough events, etc. You can chose how you want to be contacted and what you want to be contacted about. You can sign up 
here.

Finally, I would like to thank all of our volunteers that serve our community and work to make Wharton a great place to live. Things like the Carnival and Canal Day can’t happen without volunteers and it great to see people take the time out of their busy lives to keep those events going.

 

Mayor William J. Chegwidden
