-Please check out our helpful links section below!  There are many resources available to NJ business owners, and these sites are a great place to start. Contact us if you need any additional help or information.

-A little background on EDACs:  The EDAC is present in many communities across New Jersey, as we are all working strenuously to retain and grow old businesses within our borders, and attract new businesses that will enhance our towns and maintain and stabilize our tax base.  Our EDAC is comprised of volunteers with specific qualifications who will be an informational resource for business owners and will act as a liasion to our town council and boards.  They will work to market our town to prospective businesses, and will reach out to current business owners to ascertain what they may need to continue to thrive within our town.  They will also work with the Warren County EDAC; the various state agencies that exist to support local businesses; and any related committees located in the towns surrounding Lopatcong as needed to promote our area and stimulate commercial growth.

-If you have any questions, ideas, or suggestions, please contact Councilman Palitto.
