CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham Borough Administrator Robert Falzarano is leaving to take the administrator's position in Harding Township.

"I accepted the position in Harding Township today (Wednesday)," Falzrano said when reached by phone. "I'm leaving Chatham on a very positive note. I've been working for the borough for 16 years and I'm at the point in my life that I'm looking for a change and a different challenge."

The Borough of Chatham Council will hold a special meeting 7:30 p.m. Monday to discuss a replacement. Falzarano indicated that his final official day with Chatham Borough will be between June 2 and June 9.

"He's the best administrator we've ever had," Longtime Chatham Borough resident Bob Olpp said.

Falzarano, 63, said he had been thinking about leaving for the last year and a half.

"I've been thinking about what I'd like to do next," Falzarano said. "Harding is completely different from Chatham. The challenges in Harding will be very different. Chatham is looking at development now and Harding isn't.

"Chatham was very good to me. It's been a great experience and the residents have been so supportive."

A resident of Long Hill, Falzarano served as the Long Hill Township Police Chief for 15 years before coming to Chatham Borough. He leaves the borough having helped attain a triple-A bond rating from Moody's.

Falzarano mentioned the 10-year strategic management plan and his list of "goals and objectives" he set for the borough each year.

"Making that strategic plan and setting those goals and objectives were how we were able to accomplish so much," Falzarano said. "It helped us identify goals and measure our progress each year."
