Message from the City Manager


Now, more than ever, governments are expected to work more efficiently, while still providing the level of service and support their constituents have come to expect. For that reason, meeting the expectations of our community requires us to continually re-evaluate service delivery, while maintaining or improving the quality of life for those who call Newark home. It starts with a commitment to prevent operations from growing stagnant and ends with making proper investments that integrate smart technology and achieve efficiencies.

Since 2012, the City of Newark has identified and incorporated several smart initiatives into the regular operations of city government. Now, several years later, we’re in a position to review and reflect on the benefits of those efforts.

Below is a link to a document outlining five “smart city” initiatives undertaken by the City of Newark. They include:

  • McKees Solar Park;
  • Smart Utility Meters;
  • Bigbelly Solar Powered Compactors;
  • Credit-Enabled Parking Meters; and
  • LED Streetlights

We’ve made tremendous progress over the past several years and we are proud of the success we’ve achieved through these efforts, but the City of Newark remains committed to service excellence and there is still more work to be done. We are grateful to our Mayor and Council, engaged citizens, and dedicated community partners for their support and we look forward to working together to identify and incorporate additional measures to ensure Newark remains a vibrant, innovative, smart city.
