Mayor's Corner

Mayor William J. Chegwidden

As the weather starts getting colder it’s time to get ready for some of our fall events. Our annual Job Fair is on September 13th and with 15 companies in attendance it should be helpful for our residents who are looking for a new job. The Camo Color Run is on September 24th, for more information about the run you can visit their website. Football, Cheer, and Soccer have all started their fall seasons. HalloWharton is on October 28th.

The Town Nurse will be holding a Flu Shot Clinic for Wharton residents on September 20th from 10 am-Noon in Town Hall and from 1:30 pm-2:30 pm at Centennial Courts Senior Housing. The fee is $15, payable by cash or check. If you have Medicare, please bring your card and there is no fee. Please wear short sleeves if possible. Call Carol Miller RN BSN to make an appointment at 973-361-8444 x2715 Tues.-Thurs. from 9:30 am- 2 pm.

The second edition of my Mayor’s newsletter has been released. The first few issues will be mailed to every resident in town and you will then have the option to sign up to receive email copies of future newsletters.

As part of the follow up to our Economic Development Meeting held in June, we’ve completed the online survey of additional feedback. The Business Development Committee has also had its first meeting.

We are also on twitter as @WhartonNJ and on facebook. Follow us for Borough information and updates. You can also sign up for the Everbridge notification system on this site. We use it 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.
