The Mayor and Commissioners of the City of Bordentown are committed to the health and wellbeing of residents and employees, alike, in our “little city with a lot of charm”.
For many years we have been a part of or supported the Bordentown Residents Against Drugs campaign to help aid the many families who have sadly lost loved ones to, or watched them struggle with, addiction. Each year the Bordentown Rotary has a remembrance walk that City officials participate in and support that brings attention to the plight of those who suffer from addiction or have lost a loved one to addiction.
In May of 2022, the governing body adopted Resolution 2022-071 designating Bordentown City as a stigma free community in support of the Burlington County Board of Commissioners’ campaign for Stigma Free Schools and Municipalities, which supports those suffering from mental illness or substance abuse disorders.
It is the intent of the Mayor and Commissioners to provide the Bordentown community with guidance and support on healthy eating, exercise for all age groups, mental health and addiction awareness and support, and general wellness information. If you have other valuable resources you would like to see added to our page, please feel free to e-mail the City Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org
