The July 8th Council meeting has been canceled.

Summer hours continue!  Late night Thursdays/early dismissal on Fridays…

Morris Lake was 1 inch over the top of the spillway on 6.24.13.

The Handbook modifications are being reviewed for presentation later in the summer to the Council.  My thanks to all department heads who submitted suggestions and to Tracy and Ursula for assisting me with same.

We are still compiling addresses of retail establishments to target for our marketing efforts.

I met with Jayne McHugh from NJ Herald to develop some marketing materials for our use in the fall and winter months.

The Newton jingle from Clear Channel is done!  The jingle will be used to promote the Taste of Newton in September and all future Newton events.

We had a great conference call yesterday with Mark Patterson – The Brand Artist – to discuss strategic marketing and brand development for the Town.  I will keep you posted.

Paving is occurring today on Lower Spring Street. 

The pool is open!  Check out the sun and fun at the County’s premier summer recreational facility!

Stay safe and have a great weekend!
