2 Dear Fellow Woodstown Resident: In 2014 borough government continued its successful team efforts to maintain and enhance the quality of life Woodstown residents enjoy while keeping our level of debt very low and declining. 1)We implemented a shared service agreement with Logan Township to collect our trash and recyclables. In 2015 this new shared service will save us approximately $25,000. 2)We completed important sewer and water pipe, sidewalk and street improvements on East Millbrooke Avenue and Green Street utilizing grant funds from the state. 3)We foreclosed on and auctioned to private owners three abandoned properties in Woodstown, including the famous “Pink House.” The rehabilitation of the Pink House is underway. 4)We invested to support the services residents want: a new Public Works truck, a new police vehicle, replacement windows for borough hall, and a new heating system for our fire hall. 5)Our Woodstown police force continued to provide and enhance public safety in Woodstown in By many statistics, our police force did even more in 2014 with the same resources as in 2013, including even more motor vehicle stops associated with traffic control. In 2015 we will work as a team to continue to provide all the services we have been providing. We will also provide at least three significant improvements to the infrastructure in Woodstown. 1)We plan provide needed rehabilitation of Borough Hall. Like Woodstown High School, borough hall is a historic gem in Woodstown that we want to preserve. Furthermore, investment in its preservation will be much more cost-effective than being forced to replace it at some point in the future. 2)There will be significant improvements in the Alloway Road area this year. We will use grant money to replace the water main, widen the street on both sides, and finish sidewalks and curbs along Alloway Road to beyond Liberty Avenue. We will acquire 12 acres of new open space contiguous to Marvin L. Watson Memorial Park to provide for future recreational space. 3)We will continue to work with DOT to prepare to refurbish the corner of Route 40 and 45 in the heart of Woodstown in Plans for this important improvement can be found on our borough website. In 2015 we look forward to continuing to work as a team with our municipal employees, police and the many residents who kindly donate their time and talents to our borough’s many pubic safety organizations, boards, commissions and committees and special events. Together we plan to continue to provide the high level of public safety, charm and quality of life that we all enjoy in Woodstown. Warm Regards, Don Dietrich, Deb Tierno, Ed Segrest, John Hall, Joe Hiles, Dave Layton & Glenn Merkle Mayor Woodstown Borough Council _____________________________________________________________________________________ Borough of Woodstown (Address) CURRENT RESIDENT (Address)
