Our Borough Council presented five Proclamations at our recent April 27th Council Meeting in recognition of the unparalleled efforts by our Borough Police, Fire, EMS, Emergency Dispatch, and Public Works. Every year at this time, our nation pauses to honor the work of all emergency service professionals. During April and May, we honor their selfless work and dedication to their respective professions. This year, due to these unprecedented times, Proclamations were awarded to honor all of our emergency service professionals simultaneously. We are very fortunate to have such outstanding and devoted emergency personnel in our community. On behalf of the entire community, we would like to thank them for their tireless efforts and ongoing dedication to the residents of New Providence and let them know that their valiant efforts are tremendously appreciated.


Our County and State Parks will be re-opening this Saturday 5/2 (with restrictions and social distancing). New Providence Parks are and have remained opened. We want to take this time to remind everyone about the rules for our parks.

Today was Chief Anthony Buccelli’s last day as New Providence Police Chief. We thank him for his 40 years of dedicated service to our community, which he has shown the utmost integrity. As Emergency Management Coordinator, his leadership has gotten us through hurricanes, floods, tornados, storms, and now this pandemic. We are so grateful for his good service and wish him well in all his future endeavors.


Be well. Stay Safe. And Keep positive. We will get through this. Pioneer Strong!
