Mayor's Corner

Mayor William J. Chegwidden

I am hoping that spring will soon be arriving in Wharton. As usual, spring brings with it a lot of exciting activities around the Borough. In April, baseball and soccer have opening day ceremonies planned as well as the Fire Department’s annual Easter Egg Hunt. May is another busy month with the FOP fishing contest and the Memorial Day Parade.

The Borough is now on twitter as @WhartonNJ. Follow us for Borough information.
