January 2, 1967 – Mayor Al Scerbo New Year Message
Mayor Alfonse W. Scerbo presented the following address at the annual reorganization meeting at the Town of Boonton on Monday night.
“Today we officially enter our Centennial year. I am very proud that luck has permitted me to be Mayor during this important year.”
“I believe that 1967 could mark the rebirth of Boonton’s importance as a leading community in the County.”
“This year will see the consolidation of two outdated firehouses into one modern building and the subsequent release of a prime site for a new business; the completion of our new grammar school; the extension of our water system towards a completely automated and self-sufficient one; the continued reclamation of our natural resources; the further development of our recreational facilities; one and perhaps two additions to our industrial family; continued determination to upgrade all our housing and, I hope the initial stage of our Urban Renewal program.”
