UNION, NJ – Another in a series of New Resident Receptions was held Tuesday night at Town Hall with about 10 new residents in attendance. Union Mayor Suzette Cavadas said this new initiative was developed to function as “more than just a welcome, but as a way to connect newcomers with each other and help them with access to information on programs, services, and agencies that will help them root themselves in our community.”

“You couldn’t pick a better time to move into our great town,” Cavadas said. “We are on the verge of some really great things that are going to propel us forward and solidify our township as one of the most sought out places in Union County.”

Heads of all township departments were on hand to meet the new residents, including those from Recreation, Department of Public Works, Tax Collection, Human Resources, the Building Department, the Senior Center, as well as the Union police director, fire chief, township attorney and the township clerk.

“What I love most about Union is that it’s family-oriented,” said Margaret Adjoga-Otu, who moved to Union about a year ago. “I see wonderful community projects to bring residents together.  I’m very impressed with this program.”

Cavadas discussed the completed and ongoing development in Union Center, the upcoming Streetscape project on Stuyvesant Avnue, CodeRed alert system, Township social media and free wifi in Union Center, TV34, the Township of Union app and the Property Tax Reward Program.
