Dear Resident,

This past week we experienced our first snowstorm of 2022. Many thanks to the Department of Public Works (DPW) who treated the roads in advance of the storm and worked throughout the night and the next day to ensure our roads were clear. I also want to thank the Police led by Chief Pezzullo and the Marlboro Office of Emergency Management (OEM) who, along with our Fire Departments and First Aid Squads, are there for us 24/7.
