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.
