The Millburn Fire Department celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2001, and serves the community in a variety of ways…More beyond fighting fires.
In addition to responding to calls, the department assists residents, who are locked out of their homes, have a flooded basement or have questions on proper placement of a smoke detector. It hosts community events, including an annual open house each fall.
The department has 47 career firefighters and 14 volunteer firefighters. They are led by Fire Chief J. Michael Roberts.
Since its establishment in 1992, the Downtown Millburn Development Alliance (also known as the DMDA and/or Downtown…More Millburn) is the management entity of the Special Improvement District that works cooperatively with property owners, merchants, restaurants and township officials to implement initiatives, special projects, special events and visual enhancements to make Downtown Millburn a shopping and dining destination for residents and visitors.
The Special Improvement District is funded through taxes paid in property taxes for commercial or retail space. Property owners are charged a 0.0012 rate, meaning that 0.0012 percent of their property taxes go toward funding the Special Improvement District in Downtown Millburn. There are 118 property owners listed on the assessment role.
Downtown Millburn works closely with the Township on a wide variety of issues affecting the downtown area, including but not limited to flooding, parking, traffic, maintenance and other subjects of mutual concern.
Downtown Millburn is governed by a fifteen member Board of Directors. An eight member Executive Committee oversees the daily operations. In addition, many people volunteer their time serving on committees and helping with special events to make Downtown Millburn a premier shopping and dining destination.
Downtown Millburn produces a Spring event, the farmers market, a Fall event, pre-school trick or treat and the Snowflake parade. Check the website for more information.
