On behalf of the Governing Body and the entire Borough Family, I extend my best wishes for a healthy, happy and prosperous 2019. I am proud to work with all of our Borough employees and thank them for their commitment to Eatontown.
Eatontown is successful in large part because of the many men and women who volunteer their time and talents. Our boards and committees focus on various activities in an effort to make the Borough a better place. They are always looking for help, so please consider attending a meeting and perhaps joining a group that may interest you. In addition to these groups, Eatontown is critically dependent upon the men and women of our Emergency Services units. Regardless of the weather, season or time of day, these unpaid professionals answer the call to serve. Let's help them help us. Please consider joining our Fire Department, First Aid Squad, CERT, Office of Emergency Management, or Fire Police.
As I begin my first year as Mayor, I wish to express my appreciation for the trust you have placed in me. Our residents expect a government that is responsive to their concerns as well as proactive and innovative in meeting the Borough's needs. The year 2019 will bring the Borough of Eatontown many challenges and opportunities. We must come together as a municipal family to appropriately address them now and plan for the future. The proposed revitalization of the Monmouth Mall and redevelopment of Fort Monmouth must be done in ways that help our town grow economically strong without losing our small-town feel. As a life-long resident, there is nothing I want more than families to choose Eatontown as the place they establish roots and call home. Working together, and with a government that is open to constructive criticism and feedback, we will be able to favorably shape Eatontown's future for generations to come.
Reach out to me with any issue or concern you may have.
Anthony Talerico, Jr. Mayor
