"Operation Take Back" on Saturday, April 30, 2016

On Saturday, April 30, 2016, the East Rutherford Police Department will be a host collection site for "Operation Take Back New Jersey". Anyone may dispose of medication either in its original container or by removing medication from its container and disposing into the drug disposal box. If the original container is submitted, the individual should, if possible, remove the prescription label if it contains any personal information. Liquid products, such as cough medicine, should remain sealed in their original container. The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage. All collected medications will be turned over to the Drug Enforcement Agency for destruction. Syringes and other sharp instruments will not be accepted. The collection site will be in the lobby of Police Headquarters, 117 Stanley Street, East Rutherford from 10:00am - 2:00pm.

Mayor's Message - New Year's Day, 2016

I am honored today to have been sworn in, once again, as Mayor of East Rutherford; I thank the people for that honor.  As I begin my 32nd year on this governing body and as has been the case in my previous 31 years, we will face many challenges. We have had many successes but there is so much more to do and hopefully we have learned from some mistakes but one thing I can assure the people of East Rutherford is that I will address the many challenges we face with no less enthusiasm than I did on January 1st, 1985 when, with my father holding the bible, I was first sworn into office as a member of this governing body.
