Attention Spotswood and Helmetta Residents: Please read in full.

**This Google survey will close on FRIDAY, MARCH 5th at 4:30 PM **

**Once the vaccines are received, you will be contacted for scheduling.**

The Borough of Spotswood has partnered with the Spotswood Pharmacy, who is anticipated to receive vaccines in the near future and is willing to work with both of our Boroughs to do a mass vaccination site at the Spotswood High School.  DO NOT contact the Spotswood Pharmacy to be placed on this list.  Only responses to this survey will be recorded.

 

We have been working diligently with all of our partners to bring vaccines to our Spotswood and Helmetta residents. This form will enable us to get an estimate of the number of vaccines needed for the residents of both Boroughs.

 

Be advised - we DO NOT have a date yet in which we will be receiving the vaccines, but are preparing ahead of time to ensure we can safely and conveniently provide the vaccines to our residents who would like to be vaccinated.

 

Please register via this link to get on the Spotswood and Helmetta Borough list for vaccination. This service is being offered to Spotswood and Helmetta residents only.

 

Once we have a better idea of when Spotswood Pharmacy will receive the vaccinations, we will contact you to schedule an appointment.

 

As with all things COVID, please be patient. If you are on multiple lists, please get the first available vaccine.

IN ORDER TO GET THE MOST ACCURATE COUNT, WE ARE ASKING THAT YOU DO NOT SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE SURVEY PER PERSON.    (MULTIPLE RESPONSES WILL BE DELETED).  

 

DO NOT LIST MORE THAN ONE PERSON IN YOUR RESPONSE, IT WILL CAUSE THE RESPONSE TO BE DELETED.

You will receive an automatic response to this survey from Google forms, be advised the response may go to your SPAM or JUNK folder.  DO NOT submit multiple surveys.

Good morning Spotswood residents!  

 

It’s been almost 60 days since I took office, and what a 60 days we have had! I have spent just about every day in the municipal building, getting to know our staff and all of the many hats they all wear to keep this town running. We have a lot on our agenda to accomplish in the next few years, but planning is key to being successful.  

 

We have been working diligently with our new professionals on our transition, to get quickly up to speed and make the best decisions for our residents. There have been many meetings with our State and County officials and other local municipalities and residents on all things Spotswood – from vaccines for our residents, to safe street lighting, to commercial properties for sale, to current town projects, to proposed infrastructure repair and maintenance. We have also navigated multiple winter storms, and the crazy curve balls that get thrown at us. 

 

We have “soft-opened” the building, meaning we have unlocked our doors, and while we are still cautious about having in person meetings, we are getting closer to that day. 

 

We have had many resident volunteers reach out, and we will be setting up some meetings soon to get our citizen committees up and running as well. 

 

Our search for our new BA is also underway, and we have gotten many great talented applicants with a variety of experience. We are hoping to finalize a decision in early April.

 

While we try to stay up to date on social media, we sometimes miss posts as we are handling the day-to-day activity of Borough operations. I encourage all residents to reach out directly to my office with any questions or concerns – I am available to schedule meetings if necessary. 

 

Spring is hopefully right around the corner, and warmer sunny days will bring more opportunities to see our neighbors. 

 

Have a nice weekend! 

Mayor Palmer
