Longtime Swedesboro Borough Employee Passes

It is with true sadness that I need to report that Chuck Simmerman, the Borough of Swedesboro’s long time Public Works Department employee and Superintendent has passed away.  Chuck served our town for over 20 years and was a hard worker and a great person.  We offer our sincere condolences to the Simmerman family. 

Chuck followed in the footsteps of his father within the Department and between the two of them they provided over 50 years of service to Swedesboro. 

We thank Chuck for his many years of service.
