I would like to thank my fellow Committee members for their continued service and for trusting me to serve as our mayor. I would also like to thank Scott Aagre. Over the past two years, the town has faced some difficult decisions and Scott, as mayor, has helped lead us. He has also allowed the Committee to make the best decisions to serve Hazlet. This is what we are all here to do; we are here to serve Hazlet. Even the Greek and Latin origins of the two words “Political Office” means in service of the city. This is why we do it; Hazlet is a great place to live and work and we all want to serve Hazlet to make it even better.
We all want the same things. We want the town to provide the best services, facilities and infrastructure, and we also want the town to be fiscally responsible. This Committee has been doing this and will continue to do this moving forward.
The Municipal budget has not increased since 2016. But, at the same time, a long term Road Improvement Program has been put in place; our police department has been provided with new resources so that it can continue to provide Hazlet with outstanding service, our First Aid has received additional resources so that our volunteers can better serve those Hazlet residents who are in need. I am proud of these and the many other accomplishments of the Township.
But, we can always improve. We will be enhancing our communications with a new and improved website. We have more improvements coming to our parks and recreation areas. We will continue with our Road Program. We will find new ways to help our residents and we will help our merchants and commercial property owners explore new ways to help build our economy.
I am very excited for what this new year and this new decade will bring to Hazlet and we are all excited to SERVE HAZLET.
Thank you and Happy New Year
