Press Releases


Mayor Carmen F. Amato, Jr., is pleased to announce that he will continue his evening office hours. Mayor Amato's evening office hours are in addition to his "Meet the Mayor" and “Town Hall” programs, which will also continue in 2017.

"My next two scheduled public evening office hours will be held Monday, January 23rd and Monday, February 13th at Berkeley Town Hall from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. Elected officials have an obligation to be as accessible as possible to our constituents. During my time in office, I have held countless ‘Meet the Mayor’ and ‘Town Hall’ meetings, I regularly meet with constituents outside of regular business hours, and have created additional avenues for residents to contact local government," Mayor Amato said.

"Berkeley Twp. has a Hotline number that provides residents with one-stop access to Township government, enabling the township to more effectively and efficiently respond to residents’ suggestions, concerns or complaints. The Hotline number is 732-244-7400 ext. 203, and is available 24 hours a day," Mayor Amato stated. Residents can also email the Mayor directly at: "In addition to the ‘Hotline’ and my email, residents are encouraged to visit and click next to the Mayor's message to provide suggestions or feedback online, with most residents receiving follow-up the next business day," Mayor Amato said. Our Township of Berkeley Facebook Page is new, and is constantly updated with information, news and events going on in the Township.
