Bloomfield Celebrates Local Government Week with Town Hall Display and Beautification Project

Local Government Week

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- Bloomfield is joining the New Jersey League of Municipalities and numerous towns in celebrating Local Government Week. 

Because local government is the government closest to most citizens, and the one with the most direct daily impact upon its residents, it is important that residents understand how their local government operates, the services it provides, and the importance of their active involvement.  

All week long, a display will be up inside the first floor of the municipal building with pictures of Bloomfield’s Fire Department, Police Department, public parks, and the municipal building throughout the years since Bloomfield was incorporated as township in 1900. This exhibit will showcase how the township has evolved over time. Town hall will be open during normal business hours, and residents are invited to visit this display, as well learn about the services every municipal department offers.

“We have over 300 employees in the Township of Bloomfield who are directly responsible for keeping our town growing in a fiscally responsible direction, with excellent public safety resources and recreation opportunities for residents of all ages. Without the services all the departments provide we would not be able to serve a municipality of almost 50,000 residents,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “Local government shapes quality of life in more ways than state and federal government, and our quality of life in Bloomfield is very high because of the township’s great personnel.”

Local Government Week is celebrated Sunday April 7 through Saturday April 13 by the New Jersey League of Municipalities to engage citizens while celebrating the work of local government. Bloomfield will wrap up the week by hosting a Government Beautification Planting Day at the Library courtyard at 90 Broad St. on Saturday April 13th from 8:00-11:00am. All volunteers are welcome.
