Mayor's Message

Welcome to our new and improved website. We are very proud to be able to continue great accomplishments  for our town end during this devastating pandemic . We could not have done this without your help and cooperation. The community spirit and passion to help our neighbors is evident every day. 

We welcome the newest show piece of our community the Atwater residential complex. It is a first class complex and is instrumental in our ability to break ground on our new recreation center in Olsen Park. We are working on many projects to enhance our open space, parks and recreational facilities levering grants and other available funding.  We continue our plans to build a new fire house and purchase much needed new fire and police equipment to keep our community safe. We applaude  the efforts of our Office of Emergency Management to maintain the safest work place and  community during the pandemic. Please continue to keep our community clean and take advantage of all of our recycling programs. 


In closing, I am extremely proud to serve as your Mayor, and hope to be able  to  reinstitute my weekly office hours for citizens to meet with me on any Borough concern. Until then you are always welcome to give me a call. Best  wishes for a safe and healthy Bogota.

Christopher M. Kelemen
