Mayor Update – Revised 11/23/2020

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As my twelve years serving as Mayor are coming to an end, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Township Administration, Public Works Department, Police Department and Sewer Department.  This Township is fortunate to have such passionate and dedicated employees working to serve the residents of Delran. 

I would like to thank the professionals that have contributed to the success of this Township.  They have been extremely helpful in obtaining grants which have allowed the Township to expand our parks, playgrounds and infrastructure.  They have always put the interest of this community first.  I would like to especially thank CME Associates and Platt & Riso, P.C.

Also, I would like to say thank you to the residents of Delran for all their support along with the trust they have had in me to represent this community. We have developed into one of the most desirable towns along the river and in the County.  I understand that this has been a very trying and difficult time for everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic but we must try to continue to follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Governor’s Office.  Please stay safe and enjoy the holiday season. 

Finally, I have a lot of confidence that the future Mayor and Council will continue the positive approach that we have set forth. 

Wishing you all the best, 

Mayor Kenneth H. Paris

Mayor’s Desk Fall 2019

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As fall begins and school is back in session, I just want to remind everyone to please drive safely and look out for school buses and children.

We have some great projects that have recently been completed including the completion of Jake’s Place at Delran Community.  We are extremely happy to have the project completed and hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful park. This fall we anticipate the repaving of Diane Avenue, Patricia Avenue, Norman Avenue, River Road, Lake Street and Wills Street.  Due to the County trail project along River Road, certain items may not be completed until spring. 

We have also received an NJDOT grant for the repaving of a portion of Conrow Road.  We are still waiting to hear if we will receive additional grant funding this year to be able to complete the entire roadway. 

We have submitted a grant application to the County for the FY2019 Municipal Park Grant.  The grant will be used for additional improvements at Community Park. 

We are looking forward to the Truck-or-Treat event, sponsored by the RAC, to be held on Saturday, October 26th beginning at 2:00 P.M.    Please come out and join us for a fun-filled event.  Early planning has begun for the Winter Festival.  Additional details will be posted in the coming weeks.
