A MESSAGE FROM MAYOR BILL LAFORET
Our community has a bright future.
Our community has a bright future and we are looking forward to a great 2016.
Residents expect and deserve a safe community and great schools. We are proud to say we have accomplished both.
Mahwah Police Department recently received its 4th CALEA Accreditation over the last 12 years; ranking the MPD among the top three percent in the country.
Our schools continually rank among the best in all categories.
Working with United Way, Mahwah will soon be offering special needs housing, located on Ramapo Valley Road. This facility will also be providing 13 affordable senior housing units.
We are resurfacing our recreational facilities at Commodore Perry and Fardale fields to include tennis, hockey and basketball court surfaces made of the latest technology with a life span of 15 years.
We recently completed a significant municipal road resurfacing project in conjunction with State and County road repaving projects, in excess of $10 million dollars. As a result, our county and state roads are in much better condition and the Township will continue its road, curb and sidewalk resurfacing program this summer.
The DPW is operating at a new productivity and efficiency program, under the direction of our new DPW director.
Our volunteers’ continued dedication to our community is outstanding. We owe the volunteers our thanks and gratitude for keeping up with the demanding training and time commitments to insure the safety of our community.
I am proud to be your Mayor, and proud of the accomplishments we continue to make on behalf of the taxpayers of our community.
William C. Laforet
