Letter from the Mayor about the 2016 Chesterfield Harvest Festival
 
On March 14, 2016, Assemblyman Ron Dancer and Assemblyman Rob Clifton introduced A3535 legislation to provide a supplemental appropriation for School Districts across the State that had significant student enrollment increases. Chesterfield Township School District would receive under this bill, $4,195,739.  The Township Committee wants to make the residents aware of this pending legislation and encourage the residents to contact our legislators to support this bill.  See the bill here.

From Burlington County - Pothole Hotline Information - Winter storms and frigid temperatures have turned many local and county roads into pothole minefields. Our road crews have been hard at work combating these storms and keeping up with repairs. We are taking steps to beef up these efforts, and we are asking our towns to join with us in addressing this important public safety issue.A Burlington County Pothole Hotline has also been established to allow residents to report areas of road damage. This hotline can be reached at 609-265-5021. Residents can also send pothole locations to the County on twitter @BurlCoNJ.
We are certain that this “all hands on deck” approach in collaboration with our municipalities and residents is the most effective way to quickly restore our roads to the condition that our traveling public deserves.
Mary Ann O’Brien
Freeholder Director
