Message From The Council President

Dear Neighbors,

I begin this letter not only being honored to once again serve as the Council President for Wayne Township but also as a member of our remarkable community. This past year, I believe that all of our citizens have come to realize how fortunate we are to have Mayor Christopher Vergano’s steadfast leadership. Even during his cancer treatments and the COVID pandemic, Mayor Vergano’s guidance enabled the Township’s administration and employees to continue to provide the high quality of services that our residents have come to expect. I believe that during this time of uncertainty, there was nothing uncertain about Wayne Township because of our Mayor! Accordingly, I want to thank Mayor Vergano for his unwavering dedication to all of us!

As we strive to remain fiscally responsible, the Council is focused on assisting the Mayor and his Administration with undertaking all measures necessary to continue to maintain Wayne Township as an exceptional place to work and raise a family. Even though our Township, state and country have faced many challenges, we continue to explore, develop and implement new ways to improve and maintain our vital community assets. Please know that the Council stays committed to promoting and providing our Township with conversational opportunities, to facilitate an informed community.

As such, on behalf of myself and my fellow Council members I invite you to attend the Council Meetings and bring us your ideas, concerns, and suggestions. If it is important to you, it is important to us. Please let us know how we may help you.

The Township Council meets at 7:30 p.m. on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. We look forward to seeing you, but if you are unable to attend, you can also watch our meetings live on Channel 77 or On Demand via our website. Furthermore, you may contact any Council member via e-mail, or by calling the Township Clerk’s office at 973-694-1800 ext. 3208.

We remain committed to you, our neighbors of Wayne Township, and we thank you for your continued support.


Franco Mazzei

Council President
