Hope this letter finds you enjoying the last few weeks of summer!
The Borough administration has been notified of a random yellow correspondence being circulated door to door and left on mailboxes in the overnight hours regarding the disbanding of the Helmetta Police Department. Please note that this yellow paper is not an official correspondence on behalf of the Borough of Helmetta.
By strong recommendation of the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office, and for the ultimate safety of the residents and employees, the Borough Council has recently initiated dialogue with neighboring police agencies in an attempt to explore shared service options.
The Mayor and Council have full intentions on educating the taxpayers and presenting all of the facts in an open forum once all pertinent details are obtained. Residents will certainly have the opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts and/or concerns. Communication will be sent to all residents informing them of the date, time and location of the special meeting in which this important topic will be discussed in its entirety.
We value the opinion of our residents and advocate for the best interest in continuing to maintain a safe and beautiful community.
As always, the door is open. Mayor's hours are held on Thursday evenings from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. You may also contact Mayor Slavicek at anytime via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (732) 521-4946 x116.
Thank you for your support!
Mayor Chris Slavicek & Borough Council
