Mayor's Message - Spring 2017

There are many characteristics that make our community very, very special. While Fort Lee continues to aggressively progress into the new millennium by creating new and exciting redevelopment districts, improving our public schools and placing a priority on quality-of-life issues for our residents, we also take very seriously our responsibility to provide for those who need our help and assistance. In my view, this is one of government’s most important mandates.
