Mayor's Corner - Summer 2016 Edition

Fort Lee is nothing without volunteers. At no time in her 112th year history has Fort Lee had more volunteers serving on more boards and committees than the present time. From our Planning Board to our Environmental Commission, from our multiple youth sports programs to our Business District Alliance, Fort Lee boasts well over 100 volunteers who truly serve as the spirit of our community. Over the past 8 years, Fort Lee has progressed into one of the most envied communities in northern New Jersey, which in large part is attributable to the folks that give their time and devote great effort to our many committees, commissions and boards.

Fort Lee named one of the safest cities in New Jersey

Fort Lee has been named one of the safest cities in New Jersey according to SafeWise. The company reviewed data from the most recent FBI Crime in the U.S. Report, along with its own comprehensive investigation and created an all-inclusive list of the 50 safest cities in New Jersey, with 10,000 residents or more.

This is the information on Fort Lee from the company's website: "Fort Lee is a quintessential all-American community that's earning kudos for its crime fighting accomplishments. Recently, two Fort Lee police officers, Carlos Cabrera and Tom Keelen, received awards for their efforts in combating drunk driving. With officers like these keeping the street of Fort Lee safe, it's easy to see why the community's crime rate is notably low.

Zika Virus information

Zika is caused by a virus that is spread to people through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. Since 2015 Zika has been identified in several countries and territories including Central and South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Africa, and the Pacific Islands. All current cases of Zika are travel-associated meaning that a person with Zika became infected outside the U.S. in an area with ongoing Zika transmission and then traveled to the U.S. There is no known local transmission of Zika in New Jersey, which means that mosquitos in our area have not been infected with Zika virus. There have also been some reported cases of sexual transmission of Zika by a man to his sex partners.
