Labor Day 2021
As we approach Labor Day, storm restoration efforts continue across the state.
While Tropical Depression Ida wreaked havoc across New Jersey, Wednesday night, Mendham Township’s Office of Emergency Management, Police Department, Fire Department, First Aid Squad, and Department of Public Works were responding to 911 calls - all night and into the following evening.
Thankfully, by Thursday afternoon much of the flooding in Mendham Township had subsided and our first responders were called to assist other counties in their emergency response efforts.
The NJ Department of Banking and Insurance has provided guidance on filing a homeowners or auto insurance claim for storm-related damage, as well as information about flood insurance.
Thanks to the work of the Mendham Township DPW and our Township partners at JCP&L, all roads in Mendham Township were reopened on Friday and power to all residents has been restored.
As we continue to enjoy this long weekend and take part in the Mendham Pastime Club’s Annual Labor Day Carnival, Parade, and Fireworks, please take a minute to appreciate and thank our DPW employees who work all year round to keep our neighborhoods and public facilities safe and clean. Due to their tireless efforts in responding to the impact of this week’s storm, Mendham Township was able to rebound incredibly quickly.
Stay safe, have a great Labor Day, and take care.
Mayor, Mendham Township
