Mayor’s State of the Borough Address

It is indeed an honor and privilege to serve Shrewsbury for a second term as your Mayor.  I do so recognizing the tremendous support of members of Council whose commitment and work within their assigned committees, commissions and boards provides the oversight for governing our municipality.  Their work is supported by the day to day activities of our highly competent administrative staff under the leadership of our Borough Administrator, Tom Seaman, and our Borough Clerk, Kathy Krueger.  When you add the efforts of our many volunteers, coupled with the support from our Police, Fire and First Aid members, we have in place the necessary resources to insure that Shrewsbury remains whole.   I report that Shrewsbury is financially solid and being responsibly managed.  more...
