Every Borough, Community or Township relies on external sources of expertise that help to bring positive results to the community.
The Borough of Hopatcong is no different, over the last year there have been multiple Volunteers, Volunteer Organizations, and Experts that have helped Hopatcong achieve new levels of education, services, and support for the community.

The Borough of Hopatcong would like to personally thank Christopher Ryan for his level of expertise in flea markets, and the efforts that he provided to the Borough in helping to propel this event forward. This is a positive contribution to Hopatcong for both now and in the future, as it helps us create a marketplace for the future.
“His knowledge of this marketplace helped provide the Borough with multiple alternatives on the future of the marketplace within Hopatcong.”
The new 2019 community center has been a big hit to the Hopatcong Community, based upon the efforts of councilperson Dawn Roberts (gsm), and multiple efforts of other individuals in their creation of a wellness center, that features so much for the community.
In the first year, this newly created center has provided multiple resources to our community, which most recently includes the very successful giving tree.
