Dunleavy highlighted infrastructure improvements, including the paving of 60 percent of the borough's roads and the acquisition of zero interest loans to improve an aging water and sewer system. 

Dunleavy also made note of cost reducing measures like entering into shared services agreements that saved the borough $500,000. In all, Dunleavy said Bloomingdale reduced its debt from $11 million down to $9.4 million. 

Looking forward, the Mayor said the borough would continue to explore ways to increase revenues in an effort to stabilize taxes. One of the primary areas of focus will continue to be the development of Main Street through the reinstitution of the economic development commission.
