National EMS Week – May 15-21 is the 47th annual National EMS Week. Locally, we honor the all-volunteer members of the Marlboro and Morganville First Aid Squads.

Lock Your Car. Take Your Fob. Report Suspicious Activity –Please continue to lock your car, remove your key fob and keep valuables out of site. The 'See Something, Say Something and We Will Do Something' initiative continues to be effective and I thank all residents for your support and cooperation. Please do not hesitate. If you see something suspicious or out of place, call the police.
Bulk Collection/Spring Cleanup and Brush Collection – The annual bulk collection and spring brush collection is in the final weeks. We remind residents that when brush and bulk is complete our summer road program begins and no lawn debris may be placed curbside. Please review Brush and Bulk Update #5 HERE to ensure that Marlboro streets stay clean and safe.
Selling Your Home? As we enter the busy season for home sales, help make the CCO process a breeze. Before you put your home on the market, check that permits have been filed and closed for items such as finished basements, sheds, decks, raised patios and gazebos as this is required before a CCO can be issued. Please call the Building Department at 732 536-0200 ext. 1800 to review. Spring and summer are busy times for home sales and CCO inspections are currently being scheduled approximately three weeks after submission as long as all permits are filed/closed and this will increase as the selling season picks up. Please plan accordingly when you start the process of selling your home. Thank you for your cooperation.
Zoning Office Message on Property Maintenance – As spring cleanups begin, the Zoning Office details code requirements for property maintenance and how to report a vacant home in your neighborhood before it becomes unsightly. Please see the Zoning letter HERE.
Pothole Portal – The portal is on the home page of the website ‘Quick Links & Actions’ and HERE. Only one Marlboro SDL account is needed for all on-line services. This efficient method of reporting allows our residents who drive our streets every day to direct resources where they are needed.
SART Training to Support Survivors of Sexual Violence – Application deadline May 31! The Marlboro Police Department is offering SART training for those interested in volunteering to assist victims of sexual violence. For more details, please see the FLYER.
