From the Mayor’s Desk:

Hello Randolph!  I'm excited that spring is in full swing and this crazy winter is in the past. I hope to not see another like it anytime soon.  Being indoors is not exactly my cup of tea.

We have so much going on in our township that I want to share…

-          Morris County has approved the long awaited Sussex Turnpike improvement project that will include intersection realignment and signalization at Hanover Avenue, and intersection upgrades at Millbrook Avenue, Calais Road and Dover Chester Road.  The project also features other associated roadway improvements, which will transform the area and lead to the redevelopment of Mount Freedom.  Water and sewer improvements are also scheduled for the area, which should further facilitate redevelopment efforts.

-          A Parks and Recreation Master Plan will help guide us through the next 10 to 15 years.  We encourage you to share your input as to what is needed to keep our community competitive and future-focused by visiting the website www.surveymonkey.com/RansolphParksand taking the survey. You can also share your ideas on our website, www.BuildingCommunityThroughParks.MindMixer.com.  Members of the township staff are talking about what we need to plan for the future, and you should be part of the conversation.

-          A revaluation is a balancing of property values that is required by law to be completed every 10 to 15 years.  The revaluation in Randolph has started, and will go on the books in 2017. Some home and commercial property values will go up, some will go down, and many will stay the same. 

-         The Regional Animal Shelter is now open to the public, and I encourage you to visit their new facilities.  Come to the open house and ribbon cutting ceremony on April 30th at 5pm.  This is an event not to be missed.

 

Also, check our Spring Randolph Quarterly for information on:

·         Clean Communities Day and Shredding Services on April 25th

·         Bulk Trash Collection starting April 27th

·         Spring Branch Collection starting the week of April 27th

·         Mulch order forms, with delivery starting the week of May 11th

·         Senior Programs and Events

·         Library Events and Programs

·         And much more!

 

Lastly I’m hoping that everyone is taking recycling seriously as we have moved to single stream.  We toss yogurt and milk containers, plastic clam shell containers, paper, plastic and cardboard packaging, envelopes and mail (non-personal), bottles, cans, newspapers, and more all in one container.   My family has cut down our garbage to half a can per week, with two full recycling cans.  Are you as diligent as you can be?  We have also been composing for two years as it’s a great way to recycle food waste and use it in our garden as fertilizer.  In the meantime, enjoy spring!

Joanne Veech
