Lake Como Borough Council Highlights Year of Progress, Prepares for Future

The Lake Como Borough Council convened recently, marking a successful year of progress while preparing for future developments. In a meeting filled with acknowledgments and updates, the council reflected on the past year’s achievements and outlined upcoming initiatives.

Council President Douglas E. Witte presented a comprehensive review of the council’s activities over the past year. He highlighted the successful completion of the lake project, the initiation of work on Bman Park, and ongoing discussions for the redevelopment of Main Street. He also noted the procurement of nearly a million dollars in grants for the borough, which will fund infrastructure improvements and other beneficial projects.

The council also approved several special events, including the Lake Como 5K, the Belmar 5 Mile Run, and the Kilt Run. These events, organized in collaboration with local community groups, are anticipated to draw participants from the borough and beyond, fostering community engagement and promoting physical activity.

In other matters, resident Susan Turzo offered to donate a cruiser bicycle to a family in need. This generous gesture complements the council’s ongoing efforts to support local residents, such as the Giving Tree initiative.
