Word from The Mayor

Welcome to the Borough of Somerville!

Information and communication to our residents is critical for good government, and we want our citizens to be informed and involved in our community in every way. Our redesigned web site is intended to make it a bit easier for residents and visitors to find information they need, to learn about Borough departments and how your government works for you, and to communicate important happenings and keep you updated on significant events that affect the Borough. From important Borough Council and Planning Board meetings, to upcoming special committee meetings, to immediate emergency information regarding weather or other emergency incidents, your government in action can be found on our new web site!

The web site, now combined with our subscription based Somerville e-Connect and the ever present VilleTV,  empowers our residents with the knowledge that their local government is open accessible and transparent.

Our goal is to have an informed public and to provide transparency in all we do. We hope you find the new site informative and useful. If you have comments, suggestions or want to volunteer and help be a part of what makes Somerville a special place please contact me directly:

or to sign up for Somerville E-Connect using the newsletter sign-up on the front of the homepage on the left.

Thank you for taking the time to be informed!

Brian G. Gallagher
Mayor
