From the Desk
of the Mayor
pleased that you have taken the time to explore the
Milltown website. We are proud of our community
and hope that this website will allow you to familiarize
yourself with us, while at the same time answer any
questions you might have.
Founded in the late 1800s, Milltown has grown from a
Michelin Tire Company town to a borough of nearly 7,000
people, many of whom are descendants of Milltown’s founding
families. Based on the 2000 census, Milltown has
been declared the “center of population of the State of
In this busy, congested area of New Jersey, Milltown is
unique. Although we are located between two major
highways, we are able to maintain the small town
atmosphere that is part of its charm. We are also
unique in that we have our own electric and water
companies which contribute to our tax rateables and
enable us to give personalized and prompt service.
Although we have no high
school, we have an outstanding K-8 school system and we
are fortunate to be under contract with Spotswood,
enabling us to send our students to that blue ribbon
Because of our small size of 1.6 square miles, our
growth is limited. We are almost fully
developed. We are optimistic, however, about plans to
redevelop the old Michelin Tire Company site, located in
the heart of the town. Our Redevelopment Agency
continues to explore the best possible uses
for the property – uses that will enhance the area and
Our clean, safe, small town atmosphere, coupled with
outstanding borough services, diversified recreation
programs, numerous senior citizen activities and active
businesses, makes Milltown a desirable place in which to
live. If you have any questions or suggestions,
please do not hesitate to contact me.

Borough of Milltown Municipal Alliance
The Milltown Municipal Alliance Committee works with the police,
schools, community groups and businesses to provide community members
with quality programs which educate our citizens about drug, alcohol and
tobacco abuse and misuse. Part of this mission is to also provide a
coordinated approach to advocacy, collaboration and education to promote
wellness among all age groups and to keep individuals and families
healthy and safe.
Milltown Municipal Alliance Committee is a coalition of citizens from
the business, church and school community as well as members of local
organizations. Alliance members work together to develop, plan, and
implement programs and activities, which will assist in the prevention
of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs (ATOD).
Alliance receives funding from several sources including the State of
New Jersey, through Drug Education Demand Reduction (DEDR) funds, the
Borough of Milltown and local donations from businesses and private
of New Jersey provides half of the funding from the Alliance through a
grant from the Governor's Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. The
Borough of Milltown matches the grant through 25% cash match and 75% as
an In-Kind (goods and services) donation.
Meetings are open to the
