From the Desk
of the Mayor
I am 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 New Jersey.”
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 high school.
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 provide rateables.
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.
The 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).
The 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 citizens.
The State 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 public.
