I would like to wish everyone a Happy, Healthy New Year.  Over the upcoming year, I, along with the members of Council, will make our town a better place to raise our children, and overall improve our quality of life.  With this achievement in mind, I will work with the heads of each of the local departments to keep our little community safer, better, and stronger in the future.
 
First, I will continue to closely work with Police Chief John Zimmerman to ensure quality of life complaints are quickly responded to and enforced with the proper amount of strictness yet with the necessary discretion.  To that end, the Police Chief has re-instituted the park and walk policy.  This is a policy where the Officer parks his vehicle at a section in town and then begins a foot patrol of the area making himself not only more visible to those who might seek to cause crime, but more importantly giving our residents, store owners, and families the ability to feel secure while visiting our downtown and surrounding areas.  Also, I would like to commend the Chief on the work that he has performed during his first full year as the Police Chief.
 
In addition, a main priority of this Administration will included the up-keep maintenance and improvement of our three municipal parks.  I say this as growing up as a child, I spent much of my summers and weekends in one of our parks playing whiffle ball, basketball, or just riding the swings.  Unfortunately, the parks have not been upgraded and maintained in the same manner now as they had been then.  For a start, this Governing Body budgeted funds for new playground equipment for one of our parks and it is hoped that it will be installed and completed by the summer.  I also ask you, the citizens of Kenilworth, to help us maintain the parks by simply advising us as to when there is an issue that needs to be addressed, such as graffiti, broken equipment, and of the like.  Please contact either Councilman Anthony DeLuca, our Borough Clerk at Town Hall or myself to report the need and we will ensure that it is taken care of one way or another.
 
Another main priority of this Administration will be limit development of higher density structures.  This town has flourished as a mainly one-family owner occupied community.  It is understood that other structures need to exist to make the town complete.  However, to keep Kenilworth the quaint town that we all know and love, it is understood we will need to limit higher density structures.
 
I would also like to take this time to commend the new Library Director, Michael Maziekien, who has instituted new programs and technology to the Library to make it easier and more productive for everyone to enjoy.
 
Commendations also go out to our new Borough Clerk, Laura Reinertsen, over the work she has performed after joining our team earlier in 2014.  She also brought newer technology into the operation of government thereby making many things easier to use for both the citizens and the Governing Body.
 
In the upcoming year, I will also offer to work closely with all the youth programs in town such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Little League, the football and wrestling programs, the soccer club and the Recreation department so as to give them as much help as possible so they can provide proper instruction, and activities to our children.
 
I will also work closely with our town seniors so that they may have, at their disposal, all they need for their daily activities and to make their lives safer.
 
May all of you enjoy a Happy Healthy New Year and the best wished to you and your family.
 

Mayor Fred Pugliese
