Land Use Board Survey for Residents
The Land Use Board is working with the Board Planner on an Economic Development Plan for the Borough of Ogdensburg. Angela Knowles, Board Planner explained to the Board during their August 25, 2020 meeting via zoom/audio that she had spoken to different stakeholders and found a variety of topics that are of interest for the Borough. Those topics include opportunities for celebrating the Borough’s history, adding and/or connecting to existing biking and hiking trails, and revitalizing the Main Street.
The Land Use Board would like to get some feed back from the residents as to what they would like to see for the Borough.

COVID-19 HOTLINE – Info
To: All Township Residents
From: Mayor George Hutnick
The Borough or Ogdensburg continues to monitor the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout our region. This is a difficult and extraordinary situation, and I recognize that people throughout our community, including our workforce, are concerned for their personal health and that of their families and friends.
As you are aware, Governor Murphy declared a State of Emergency, and Public Health Emergency to strengthen state preparedness to contain the spread of COVID-19. The Borough is working closely with the NJ Department of Health to monitor the situation.
This week, Governor Murphy released a statement based on guidance from the Commissioner of Health. Governor Murphy is recommending the cancellation of all public gatherings throughout New Jersey of more than 50 individuals. These measures are being taken as part of a coordinated response to the continued outbreak, and to aggressively mitigate the spread of the virus.
No matter the size of the event, I can’t stress enough how important it is to practice commonsense hygiene like washing your hands, staying home if you are sick, and keeping a social distance space of six feet.
In an effort to protect those members of our community at the highest risk for complications of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as the health of our workforce, the Borough has cancelled all youth activities, as well as all recreational programs. As updates are released, we will share on our Facebook page, on our website and here on the town hall door.
I have cancelled all non-essential meetings. The website calendar will reflect the cancellations of the various Boards and Commissions.
Effective Monday March 16th, the municipal building will be open normal office hours but closed to the public in order to help reduce the chance of any exposure. We encourage all residents to use the drop-off box for payments located outside at the entrance to the building or call Borough Hall at 973-827-3444 for any questions or concerns.
There will be no interruption of schedule for the Department of Public Works or our Police Services.
While there is still much to learn about COVID-19, residents should remain calm and vigilant in their personal efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and monitor the Borough website at http://www.ogdensburgnj.org/ for updated information.
As a reminder, the New Jersey Department of Health has established a 24-hour telephone hotline for residents who may have concerns or questions: 800-222-1222.
