Weekend Update

Dear Resident,

We have several events in Town this weekend so please expect extra traffic and slow down especially in the area of the Municipal Complex. 

This Saturday is Kids to Park day.  We encourage residents to enjoy Marlboro’s 14 parks.  At any time, should you notice a park maintenance issue, the most efficient way to report a problem is using our on-line system HERE.  Similar to the Pothole Porthole (and using the same password) this easy system allows the concern to be directly reported. You can find also find the link on our home page under Quick Links and Actions.  Of course, if something is emergent, call the police at 732-536-0100 or dial 911.

The bike tour ends in Washington, DC and officers took part in the National Candlelight Vigil.  The bike tour raises awareness of law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty while also raising funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum. Please join me in congratulating the officers that participated in this week’s Unity Tour and thanking all our Police Officers for all they do to keep us safe every day throughout the year. 

Have a good weekend,

Mayor Jon Hornik
