We know that many of our senior residents are having a difficult time getting food, medicine and other essentials during this time.  Many are rightfully concerned about being exposed to the Coronavirus and are reluctant to venture outside of their homes to go to the supermarket, the pharmacy or the bank.  However, there are many volunteers in our town, at our local houses of worship or affiliated with organizations who are ready, willing and anxious to help.  The only thing missing is the connection between those who need help and those offering help.  If you are or know of a North Caldwell senior citizen who can use some help, please contact us at the following numbers and we will match you up with an eager volunteer: 

Council President Cynthia Santomauro


Public Safety Chairman, Councilman John Chiaia

April 1 is CENSUS DAY!

In mid-March, homes across the country will begin receiving invitations to complete the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail.  When completing the census, you will include everyone living in your home on April 1, 2020. 

  • March 12 - 20: Households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census online, by phone, or by mail.  
  • April 1: Census Day is observed nationwide. By this date, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. When you respond to the census, you'll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020.
  • May - July: Census takers will begin visiting homes that haven't responded to the 2020 Census to help make sure everyone is counted.
  • December: The Census Bureau will deliver apportionment counts to the President and Congress as required by law.
