Contact: Mayor James R. Barberio FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Residents in the western portion of Parsippany can rest easier as Mayor Barberio has secured a police sub-station in the Powder Mill area. This will provide increased coverage for Puddingstone, Glenmont Commons, Powder Mill, Sedgefield, Glacier Hills and areas in the western outskirts of Parsippany.
Since the beginning of his term, Mayor Barberio realized the difficulty to safeguard certain neighborhoods in the outer portion of town due to the size of Parsippany and the longer distance from the police department. With the assistance of Councilman Louis Valori, the Mayor was able to negotiate a lease to provide a police sub-station at 46 Gibraltar Drive in the Powder Mill Shopping Center. “I have been pushing for this since I first started my term as Mayor. As Director of the police department, I had many concerns about response times and saw a significant need to better serve the residents of western Parsippany. I am thrilled to see this finally come to fruition,” said Mayor Barberio.
Chief Paul Philipps stated that, “The need to effectively police a township of this size has just been simplified by the addition of the Powder Mill police sub-station. I have always supported Mayor Barberio’s efforts to accomplish this and I am happy to see that he has been able to finally get this done.”
