Message From Mayor Nick Kappatos

Mayor Nick Kappatos

To the Residents of Runnemede,

Once again, I must first thank Council President Patty Passio and Councilman John Ranieri for all the work they do to put this newsletter together. Each newsletter is better than the one before, and the amount of information in this one is greater than any before. I hope all of you gain a better understanding of your local government and your community.
So far this year we received $375,000 from the NJ DOT to finish re-paving Shissler Circle, North and South Rowand Ave., and Woodland Ave. The Public Works Department will be replacing its dump truck and the new Fire Engine is on its way to our Fire Co. I am very proud to announce the promotions of both Sergeant Dan Murray and Sergeant Bill Sampolski to Captains. Both have shown their dedication to this community and to their department. The Police Department and town are lucky to have them.
Starting this summer, the Runnemede Board of Education will be renting the second floor of the Borough Municipal Building for their Administrative Offices. Council and I, as well as all the Borough employees want to welcome the BOE and we are very proud of our shared service agreements. Last year we had our Redevelopment Zone approved by the State for area along the Black Horse Pike. This year we will be finalizing our redevelopment plan and updating many of our ordinances to reflect a business-friendly attitude.
I also want to thank all the residents of Runnemede who gave their time to help this year. Especially those who have shown their desire to make Runnemede a better place. Reimagine Runnemede, the Green Team, and the residents that have attended meetings, are adding to our success. As always it is my honor to be the Mayor of Runnemede. Each year continues to show great progress and I look forward to this year being better than the last. Please enjoy this newsletter, it is being sent to every household.

Thank You,

Nick Kappatos
