Message from the Mayor

Dear Residents:

Happy Memorial Day!  As we get ready to celebrate the kickoff of summer you may be aware the barricades have been removed from the Art Museum patio and the benches have returned to Main Street.  The Governor also announced today that the limit on outdoor gatherings is lifted from 10 individuals to 25 individuals - the easing of restrictions is the first step as we begin the re-opening process.  While some of you may feel this is still moving too slow I ask that you bear with us as there are no rules or books that give us the directions on re-opening.  

As you take the time to enjoy the outdoors remember that our restaurants are still offering curbside pickup and now our retail stores are also able to offer curbside pickup.  If you have questions to a specific store please reach out to them directly.  Parking temporarily has been limited to 30 minutes to allow for all who wish to order curbside can  pickup safely.  If you are planning to park for longer than 30 minutes we would ask that you use one of the municipal lots and not Main Street.

I would also like to make you aware that in an effort to work with the businesses to ensure that we open in a safe manner - a small group of residents, business owners as well as myself, Councilwoman Karsh and Councilman Humphrey will be working to establish our own Re-start and Re-open Plan that is specific to Clinton and based on the guidelines we will receive from the state and county as well as our OEM coordinator.  Our goal is to ensure that we re-open to the benefit of all of our businesses while ensuring the safety of all.

As always please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns 908-399-8921 or jkovach@clintonnj.gov
