Mayor’s Message

January 2022

Dear Riverton Resident,

We start 2022 full of promise for better days ahead. The Covid restrictions are easing as vaccinations increase and cases decrease.  We urge you to continue to take the precautions you feel are necessary for your health and safety.

Our new and improved website will be launched soon.  All the information you need will be available with an easier to navigate format.  The Borough will soon  begin to use a new communication tool called “Nixle.” Look for the “Nixle’ logo on our website and social media posts to sign up for alerts from the Borough by your choice of text, phone call or email!

Borough Council and Planning Board meetings continue via Zoom and/or conference call for the time being. Instructions are on the website or call Borough Hall for instructions.

Town events such as the Food Truck Nights, Treasure Day, the 4th of July and the Christmas Village are all planned for this year.  Check our Community Calendar page, Facebook and Instagram for details as they become available.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me or any member of Borough Council.  All contact information can be found in the directory or on this site.

Sincerely,

Suzanne Cairns Wells

Mayor

A Note about Borough trees from Shade Tree Board Chairman, Barry Emens and Council Liaison Jim Quinn:

So far this year, over twenty (20) Borough street trees have been destroyed by severe windstorms and Hurricane Isaias. Please consider donating to the Shade Tree Trust Fund to help plant new trees. Tax deductible donations to this dedicated fund are used solely to purchase and plant Borough Shade Trees. Trees planted between the curb and sidewalk are Borough trees. On some streets, Borough trees are planted in the right of ways just inside the sidewalks. The Borough is responsible for maintaining these trees. Residents may not trim, remove or hang anything from a Borough tree. Please call the Borough office if you have a problem with a tree and are not sure of ownership.
