Welcome from the Members
Thank you for taking the time to visit our Burlington County website! I know I speak for all the members of the Freeholder Board in welcoming both residents and newcomers to explore all the programs and services we have to offer.
Geographically, we are the largest county in New Jersey, extending from the Delaware Riverfront to the Atlantic Ocean. We seem to have it all: pristine pinelands forests, modern office and business parks, historic downtown shopping districts, thousands of acres of preserved farmland and open space, attractive county parks, and comfortable suburban communities. Just for starters.
County government works closely with our 40 communities and other entities to provide an array of cost-saving shared services. We treat the taxpayer’s dollar carefully, having cut millions in county government spending and taxes over the last 3 years.
In short: quality of life and opportunity abound in Burlington County. Again, welcome!
