FLORHAM PARK, NJ- It was a night of honors at the Florham Park Borough Council Meeting where in addition to the promotion of two Florham Park police officers and the swearing in of two new dispatchers, the years of service by William Zuckerman was lauded by Mayor Mark Taylor.
“This is honoring Bill Zuckerman for his years of service to the volunteer fire department,” Mayor Taylor began. “Whereas Florham Park is known as the community of volunteers, residents such as William Zuckerman exemplify what it means to be a volunteer and give back to the community.”
Zuckerman was entered into the rolls of the New Jersey State Fireman’s Association in November of 1966 as a member of the Florham Park Fire Department. Since then Zuckerman has served on the volunteer fire squad for the town for 50 years. He was recently honored on the state level, being recognized by the New Jersey State Fireman’s Association for his five decades of service and now is being honored by the borough to which he has given so much.
Zuckerman has been a proud resident of the Borough of Florham Park for 52 years. He has been married to his wife Lonnie for over 55 years and has raised three sons in the borough, William, David and Richard.
Continuing to serve his community, Zuckerman currently acts as a member of the borough council. In fact, he now sits at the right hand of Mayor Taylor as council president. Zuckerman acts as the council’s liaison to the Florham Park Board of Education, the environmental commission and the community pool.
“The merit council would like to recognize Mr. Zuckerman for his years on the fire department, his years on the borough council and all of the other activities he has selflessly given to as a volunteer over these years,” Mayor Taylor concluded.
The proclamation officially took hold on Thursday, February 16th to the applause of all assembled at the council meeting.
