We are respectfully asking residents to remain mindful that heavy leaf season is upon us. If you are parked in the street overnight, DO NOT park on top or too close to leave piles. Please be cognizant that our DPW needs to come through with large trucks and machinery to collect the leaves. If vehicles are parked on top or too close to piles, it may result in leaves not being picked up. We kindly ask that if you do not need to park in the street, please save the spaces for those who need it. Doing this will help our DPW with the collection and our neighbors.

Here in the Borough of Dumont, we pride ourselves on being a community robust with events and recreational activities. It goes without saying that the past sixteen months have been extremely difficult. We saw our borough, state, and country grind to a halt, and faced unprecedented isolation. Lately, however, we have seen progress, including our own recreational programs and public spaces coming back to life. For many of us, this has been a much-needed beacon of hope that we are finally returning to normal.
As we continue to move forward, I am very pleased to announce several community events planned for the month of July. First, sponsored by the Dumont Community Group, we are proud to once again present Movies in the Park! The Dumont Community Group will be hosting three movie nights on the Babe Ruth Field at Veterans Memorial Park. Mark your calendars! The dates and showings are as follows:
Another exciting announcement: The Borough of Dumont is proud to present Rock the Block! Rock the Block is a series of block parties throughout the borough. Our goal is to help get our residents outside and together again, as one big borough family, while having a BLAST! Our Rock the Block events will feature a DJ, free rides and games for children, and food vendors who will offer a variety of food for purchase. Think block party meets street fair! As always, we kindly ask that you walk to community events where possible, and please be mindful of our neighbors if parking on the street. Our Rock the Block events are as follows:
And last but not least in our community events announcement: The Dumont Shade Tree Commission is hosting weekly concerts at their Twilight at the Gazebo series! These events are a beautiful celebration of the arts right here in Dumont. Dates are as follows:
Please see event flyers for details, and again, mark your calendars!
The Borough of Dumont, the Members of Council, and I cannot wait to see you. We look forward to coming together to celebrate our great town and each other. It's going to be an AMAZING summer in the borough!
Mayor Andrew LaBruno
Message From Mayor LaBruno: Upgrading our Parks & Roads
Dumont Borough Parks and Roads have not been upgraded in decades. Upon taking office, I, along with our administration and Borough Council, pledged to invest in our parks and infrastructure. I write you today to provide information on upcoming projects and clarify any misinformation being shared regarding our plans.
Gina's Field Complex
($560,840 of various grants funds will be used towards this project)
After years of false starts, the Borough Council and I have worked diligently with our Recreation Committee and we are pleased to announce Gina's Field Complex Concept Plan which provides recreational use for all ages year-round. Not only does this plan provide a tremendous improvement for our youth, but it also gives our adult and senior community the access and opportunity to improve their health through physical fitness in an outdoor setting.
The plans include:
For too long, our Girls Softball Program has not had the necessary recreational space they merit, our girls deserve better, and our administration is committed to moving this program forward. Before the change of plans and use of Gina's Field, Girls Softball President and Gina Spano's family were consulted with the Borough's commitment to making Twin Boro Field the New Home of Girls Softball.
Twin Boro Field
Upgrades to the field and complex will provide Girls Softball with a home comparable to Memorial Park utilized by Dumont Little League, access to bathrooms, and a convenience hut for fundraising opportunities. Upgrades include:
Veteran's Memorial Park
(Phase 1 - $287,458 of grant funds will be utilized to fund this project - Phase 2 set for 2022)
Phase 2 - We will look to repair and improve our recreational facilities including upgrades to our walkway/running path.
Upgrades to our Roads
Over 1.3 million dollars have been received to help fund these projects. Since day one, our administration has fought to claw back our State and County tax dollars to fund various projects, improvements, and equipment in the Borough. Our administration, Borough Council, and I will continue to find ways to offset taxpayers' costs as we continue to improve Dumont and move us forward.
Doing nothing is not an option as our parks and infrastructure continue to deteriorate. We refuse to continue to kick the can down the road. We will make the necessary improvements to continue to be one of the best towns in Northern Bergen County.
The Dumont Recreation Commission, Mayor LaBruno and Dumont Council are proud to announce the return of our celebrated recreation programs this spring. The Borough of Dumont will be hosting Baseball, Softball, Men’s Softball, and Track & Field programs following the strict guidance and protocols of the New Jersey Department of Health and all current Executive Orders. The Borough is committed to working with volunteers in our recreation community to provide a safe and fun experience for all Dumont families and children. Program registration is now available on Community Pass. If you have any questions please contact our Recreation Director Tony Como at 201-384-1453.
Dumont Borough Hall will be closed on Monday, February 22nd, and will re-open Tuesday, February 23rd at our new location at 50 Washington Avenue. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Dumont Borough Hall will continue to be open to the public by appointment only. We encourage all residents to address as much borough business as possible remotely. If an in-person appointment is necessary please call 201-387-5022 and follow the prompts to schedule an appointment with the appropriate department.
