KANE, DIBENEDETTO AND FRIEDMAN FOR FREEHOLD BOROUGH

Serving with Integrity: A Reflection on Our Campaign’s Proudest Moments

Mayor Kane, Council President Didenedetto and Jeff Friedman realized that local politics is about connecting to the community, working to make sure residents quality of life is enriched and they have a sense of belonging.

That is why the team works tirelessly daily.

Easing the tax burden

In order to ease the tax burden of the residence the team applied for and received over 4 million dollars in grant funding to pave our roads, upgrade our infrastructure, improve our parks, enhance our neighborhoods and bring new life to our beloved Carnegie Library.

Preservation of Freehold Borough’s historic roots.

Moving Freehold forward is a priority however we cannot forget Freehold Borough’s historic roots. The Kane team has moved to strengthen our Historic Preservation Commission and have created new historic preservation districts, ensuring our proud history is preserved.

New Reoccuring revenue streams

Each year Borough officials struggle to provide services to residents as expenses to the day to day operations of the Borough continue to rise. The Mayor and his team realize passing these expenses to the taxpayers is NOT an option. That’s why the team has developed additional revenue streams to offset that burden.

New Reoccuring revenue streams

 Smart Redevelopment

Smart, Responsible Redevelopment: Not only will redevelopment enhance our beautiful downtown, the “My Hometown Redevelopment” project is projected to generate over $1 million in new revenue for the Borough.

Recreational Cannabis

Recreational Cannabis: Since the new ordinance has gone into effect, we have seen significant tax revenues being paid to the Borough. Once the cultivation and wholesale businesses are up and running we anticipate a substantial annual new revenue coming into the Borough.

Parking Management system

Our new Parking Management system will allow the Borough to improve our parking assets and reduce expenses for our taxpayers. All revenue from the parking system will be dedicated to operating, maintaining, and improving parking in the Borough. It will also provide the funds to identify and acquire other available properties for expanded parking opportunities, while leaving 60% of the Downtown parking free for residents to take advantage of when visiting Downtown.

ALL OF THESE NEW REVENUE SOURCES TAKE TAX BURDENS OFF OUR RESIDENTS

Enriching the quality of life for Freehold Borough residents

Mayor Kane’s administration has helped Freehold improve public safety, health and wellness, civic engagement, and economic development in our downtown.
