Weekend Update – Independence Day Edition

Dear Resident,

I hope that everyone was able to stay cool as we experienced our first heat wave of the summer.  The Marlboro Recreation Camp welcomed back our campers and the Marlboro Swim Club began operating on the daily summer schedule. We missed our campers last year and, by their smiling faces, we think they missed us.  If the hot weather made you wish you had a pool, we remind you that Swim Club memberships are still available.  See below for more.  

This is Independence Day Weekend and the Township Municipal offices and the recycling center will be closed on Monday, July 5 in observance of the holiday.  The police are open 24/7 and can be reached at 732-536-0100.  Emergencies dial 9-1-1.

The Marlboro Farmers Market will be open on Sunday, July 4th with holiday hours of 9am to noon. This week’s vendors include new and returning favorites.  Everything you need for your July 4th Barbeque is available.  You can read about our vendors in my letter HERE and by following the Facebook and Instagram pages.

Vaccination Update – New Jersey’s goal was to fully vaccinate 4.7 million people who live, work or study in the state by June 30 and they met that goal 12 days ahead of schedule.  Marlboro residents continue to have vaccination rates ahead of state averages.  As of June 25, 80% of Marlboro residents age 18 and over had their first dose (up from 75% May 28) and 95% 65 and over (up from 93% May 28). 

Every eligible person who wants a vaccine can get one at no cost, even if you do not have health insurance. If you are in need of assistance, please let us know. 

VACCINE APPOINTMENTS - We continue to facilitate vaccine appointment for residents age 12 and over. 

  • Marlboro Medical Arts Pharmacy – Located at 479 Route 520 in Marlboro, vaccines Moderna, Pfizer and J&J are available and so they are able to vaccinate ages 12 and up. Contact the pharmacy directly at 732-946-1600.
  • If you require transportation to/from your appointment, assistance for vaccinations for homebound or special needs residents or those in group living situations, or need assistance locating a vaccine, please contact my office at or call 732-536-0200 ext. 1200. 

As we head into the holiday weekend, our fire officials asked me to remind residents that fireworks are dangerous to children, pets, and property and suggest that you leave the lighting to the professionals.  Please save the date for our Township concert and fireworks to be held on Sunday, August 8 beginning at 7pm.

I wish everyone a happy and safe Independence Day Weekend.  See you at the Farmers Market Sunday. 

Yours in community,
Mayor Jon Hornik
