View Official Notice Here

Pedestrians and cyclists along Mt. Airy Road are asked to take notice: 
Somerset County is authorizing their contractor, Ritacco Construction, to close the roadway fully to vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists during their working hours of 7 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday.  These closures to all users will occur in the active work zone area that Ritacco sets up each day.  This action is necessary to keep all road users safely outside the active work zone where Ritacco is moving heavy equipment as well as large concrete and steel structures.  At the end of each work day, 4 PM, a 5’ wide lane as a pedestrian route will be created in the roadway utilizing construction fence and drums where sidewalks are not available. 

There were a number of write-in votes for Democratic Council.  The only two candidates that received enough write-in votes to get the nomination were Melissa Provost with 38 and Michael O'Brien with 31.

Whether you enjoy reading at poolside, taking advantage of our WiFi, or a vigorous exercising swim, you will enjoy doing it here, along with lots of other activities. The pool staff will provide planned programs such as games and fun for the youngsters, and ping-pong at NO CHARGE. (Some equipment may require a refundable deposit.) There are also special functions held at the pool such as family day, volleyball and movies. Why not have a party for a special someone? (Contact pool manager for details.) All of us here at the Bernardsville Municipal Pool hope you will join us for days of summer fun.

This swim season will begin May 23rd, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. and end on Labor Day at 6:00 p.m.
