“The Township Council and I are thrilled that Piscataway has achieved this national designation,” Mayor Brian C. Wahler said.  “The quality of life we enjoy in our community has been awarded a prominent and influential seal of approval.”

With wise financial stewardship, Mayor Wahler and the Township Council have been able to provide two years of a 12.8 percent lower Township tax rate while building a $32 million Community Center with no residents’ tax monies and maintaining an “AA+ stable” bond rating with Standard & Poor’s.

The economic growth and stability of the Township is due in large part to the success of Mayor Wahler and the Township Council attracting many new companies to Piscataway, several of them with state-of-the-art logistics centers that are providing good paying jobs for hard working residents.

“Whether it is building the Piscataway Community Center, refurbishing parks or resurfacing roads, our community continues to move forward,” Mayor Wahler said.
