I hope everyone celebrating or on spring break this past week enjoyed meaningful time with friends and family. As we return to work and school, bulk collection/spring cleanup along with brush collection begins and township spring programs are underway.
Please see below for more.
This past Sunday morning, Marlboro Police Officer Sgt. David Taglietta arrested four Newark residents who attempted to gain access into a vehicle this past Sunday morning. I want to thank the resident who locked their vehicle and removed the key fob preventing the car from being entered and made the 911 call immediately leading to the arrest. Congratulations to Sgt. Taglietta and Chief Pezzullo for the quick action. Thank you to all residents as we work together to keep Marlboro safe. Please review the ‘See Something. Say Something. We Will Do Something.’ letter here.
