From The Mayor's Desk
The warm steamy days of summer are knocking on our doors, school is out, the baseball fields are bustling with activity, our parks are filled and the swimming pools are ready and waiting.
With the warm weather, the city employees are busy preparing the parks, playgrounds and pools for all in the neighborhood to enjoy.
I hope you can get out and enjoy the many recreational activities available in Lyndhurst.
New this year in our Lyndhurst Police Department is a furry face and a few extra wheels. Be on the lookout for our new canine unit and bike patrol. Officer Greg Traci and his new partner Sully will be out in the community, so if you get a chance, make sure you stop and say hello.
Officer Traci and Sully will be utilized throughout the city, in the neighborhoods, retail areas and in the schools. Also, be on the lookout for two of Lyndhurst's Police Officers on bicycles; Officer Chris Cianciolo and Officer Jonathan Willard, who will be patrolling the city during the spring, summer and fall.
All three of these officers have been specially trained for their respective new responsibilities, and we are very proud of these new community policing efforts.
I hope to see you throughout the summer. Join us at our concerts in the park. The first will be held on Wednesday, June 15th 2005, featuring music from The Big Band Combo. Wednesday, July 20th 2005 features The Tony Carmen Band and finally Wednesday, August 17th 2005 will feature the Dan Zola Orchestra.
All concerts will be held in Lyndhurst Park at the Gazebo from 7:00 - 9:00 PM, Rain or Shine. (If it rains, the concert will be held in the Lyndhurst Community Center!) Bring a chair! Free ice cream will be available to all!
On Tuesday, July 5th The Hillcrest Concert Band will perform their annual Fourth of July Concert - Weather Permitting - at 7:30 PM in Lyndhurst Park.
As always, I look forward to seeing you in the neighborhood and in the shops. Please let me know if you have a question or a concern. Enjoy your summer!
