During his first year as Mayor, Andrew LaBruno, and his administration mitigated and navigated a constantly changing environment during the pandemic, all while ensuring the Borough continued to move forward and make progress.
Over the past couple of years, Mayor LaBruno and his administration have invested in our infrastructure with a road program that has over a dozen roads being resurfaced, one of the most significant PSE&G upgrades to our electric grid in over a decade, and the refurbishing of our railroad crossings that were in dire need of repair.
The Borough of Dumont has also invested in three large park projects to improve our open spaces. Memorial Park is in the process of a three-phase revitalization, including new basketball courts, ADA playground equipment, and an overall upgrade to the facility. Gina's Field/Devirtz Park is becoming the Borough's second premier park with all new ADA playground equipment, a brand new splash, a new walkway/running path with exercise equipment, and a new multi-purpose/soccer/flag-football field. And Twin Boro Field has received a secondary and brand-new diamond, new open-air dugouts, an irrigation system, and a new scoreboard to make it the NEW home of Dumont Girls Softball.
The LaBruno administration has also made progressive and positive changes to the Borough by adding a Cultural Affairs, Diversity, and Inclusivity Committee and an Arts, Beautification, and Economic Committee to move our Borough forward and build a better Dumont. These committees have produced fantastic town events such as our Rock the Block Celebrations, Pride Month Events, Dumont Day, AAPI Arts Celebration, Movies in the Park, Spooktoberfest, Winterfest, and more.
Mayor Andrew LaBruno and his administration have stopped kicking the can down the road and are committed to improving our community. A new day has dawned here in Dumont, with our best interests at heart and bringing us together as one big family.
