This is a press release from Bloomfield Township. Press releases are official statements that have not been independently verified.
Mayor Michael Venezia, Councilwoman Sarah Cruz and Councilwoman Jenny Mundell are extremely excited to announce a new initiative called “Clean & Strong Bloomfield”, that encourages community engagement by soliciting feedback from residents as well as town employees about quality of life issues, suspected criminal activity, infrastructure or roadway issues, or any situation that detracts from a safe and harmonious community environment. The annual Spring town-wide cleanup on Saturday, April 30, will serve as the kick-off event for this new campaign.
“I am very happy that Bloomfield residents will now have the opportunity to take a larger role in being part of the solution to quality of life issues in their community,” said Councilwoman Cruz. “This proactive approach will address public concerns throughout the Township and there’s no better way to kick-off this new campaign than with our annual town-wide cleanup. I look forward to joining my friends and neighbors on Saturday to help keep Bloomfield beautiful!”
Residents and visitors should familiarize themselves with the new program by visiting the Bloomfield website at: bloomfieldtwpnj.com and clicking on the “Clean & Strong Bloomfield” logo to be redirected to where to report their issue. Please note, emergency situations should still be directed to the proper authorities.
“Our annual town-wide cleanups have always been an excellent way for residents to build community, foster relationships, and truly take ownership of the spaces in which they live,” said Councilwoman Mundell. “We are always encouraged by the turnout at this event and now want to expand on that spirit by launching our new initiative ‘Clean & Strong Bloomfield’. We hope residents will take advantage of this new program by reporting any issues they see in their community so the appropriate departments can immediately take corrective action.”
The 2022 Spring Town-Wide Cleanup Day is scheduled for Saturday, April 30, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM. If you have any questions or need more information about the cleanup or the new “Clean & Strong Bloomfield” campaign, please send an email to: [email protected].
