Bloomingdale Recognized for New Resident Welcome Packet

Packet contains contact and other important information for new borough residents.

Bloomingdale has been honored for being transparent and welcoming new residents to the borough.

Bloomingdale received a certificate of special recognition from the Rutgers Center for Government Services. Municipal Clerk Jane McCarthy entered the borough into the center’s Municipal Public Information Contest. The center provides training for state and local officials so they can improve their “knowledge, competency, and professionalism.”

The borough received recognition for its new resident welcome packet, a 39-page document that contains loads of contact information about local government and community organizations. It also contains a list of borough officials, their responsibilities, and how to contact them.

Mayor Jonathan Dunleavy could not be reached for comment.

This was a joint effort by all of our Departments submitting information. We pride ourselves in being a small community but aware of the need for information of the residents, especially new ones in town. Thank you for all who helped with this entry and we are proud of the product we are able to provide to help in some small way advise the residents of our various programs, etc. We are always looking for ways to improve and new ideas. It was nice to see we were acknowledged for our efforts. Jane McCarthy

I don't know what the packet contains, but it's a great idea to provide information to new residents and make them immediately feel a part of the community and Bloomingdale has so much to offer. Congratulations!

All the towns should have it. It could be a good Marketing tool for local Realtors to show their clients.
