Mayor’s Message

By Mayor Max Conway

It was a busy October in the Borough! Our paving project was a massive success and I am happy to say that our roads are in much better shape than they were this time last year heading into the winter months.

Since taking office, I have been fortunate enough to talk with many of our business owners about the future of the Dunmore business landscape. We discussed the overall revitalization of Dunmore’s business community, how best to tap state money, upgrades to our streetscapes, and more. 

We also met with representatives from the state, including the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) director. In his words, if our business community wants to leverage its access to state money to secure potential grants and outside funding, a great step would be to launch the Dunmore Business Association (DBA). 

With the help of the association, DBA will be able to raise funds, grow local businesses, and beautify our community. If you are or know of any business owners that are not members, please feel free to email DunmoreBusinessAssociation@gmail.com. We are also on Facebook at “Dunmore Business Association” (this group is for business owners & affiliates only). 

As you all know, Dunmore is already a great place to live, work, and do business. We are hoping that the DBA can make it even better!

If you would like to keep up to date on other announcements and information, please follow me on Facebook at Mayor Max Conway!
