KENILWORTH, NJ – Please see the important message from Mayor Linda Karlovitch.

The situation we face is fast moving and uncertain. I understand how challenging it is and the major disruption in how we lead our lives. Sacrifices, lost jobs and wages, social gatherings, and family celebrations to mention a few. Please take your responsibility to respond to this virus seriously. Please stay home and follow the rules and guidelines set by our Governor. We have to make every effort to try to limit the spread of bacteria and viruses.

While Borough offices remain closed, We have prepared to pay outstanding bills, and the necessary functions of Municipal government will continue to take place. We continue to conform to all requirements.
