Our Accomplishments



Dedicated to Service


Thank you for all your support over the years

Dear Neighbors, 

I would first like to thank you for allowing me to serve as your Second Ward Councilman over the last 18 years. It is truly an honor.  Working as a team with a shared vision for a Belleville in which we can be proud, we have and will continue to enhance the quality of life in our community. SAdly our

After over 30 years the old Walter Kidde Property  warehousing project has started.

We have recently added some additional recreational and cultural programs to our Recreation Department offerings to meet the changing needs of our community.

Belleville Housing for Seniors Phase 1 was completed in 2016. This is age restricted 55 and older moderate income housing.   Phase 2  began in 2020 but completion was delayed because of COVID. Please contact the Managers office at 973-450-3322 for more information. 

After years of neglect, the old "SOHO" Hospital building on the corner of Belleville and Franklin Avenues is being saved and renovated. This building is a beautiful example of the Art Deco Period of the 1930s. For the first time in a long time, it is returning tax dollars back to Belleville.

Belleville Shoprite is open for business across from the brand new Motorcycle Mall. We have 2 new Walgreens on Washington Avenue as well as a WAWA and Starbucks (coming soon) on Franklin Avenue. These are  great examples of Belleville's Business Renaissance. We are working diligently to bring more jobs and tax revenue into our Township. My Team's goal is to promote "Smart Development" with more commercial development in an effort to lessen the tax burden on the individual residential tax payer while minimizing the impact on our schools and township infrastructure. Our overall goal will be rational, reasonable and responsible development.

In an effort to ensure the safety and security of our residents, The Council approved and completed a new lighting program on Washington Avenue in 2016. This has made the "Avenue" a safer more inviting environment for shoppers, pedestrians, and drivers.  If you have a chance, take a ride down the "Avenue" and see for yourself. There are new brighter street lights as well as pedestrian lights for the sidewalk. They are not only designed to be more effective and efficient but they look much nicer than the old aluminum poles. We are currently working with the State on a complete renovation of Washington Avenue roadway.

We have also approved new equipment for both the Police and Fire Department to help make them more effective and efficient.

Thank you for all your help and support I will continue to demand better cost controls from our municipal management in an effort to defend against higher taxes while maintaining essential services.

If you have any questions, please email me at  info@steverovell.org.

Please help me continue our fight to bring the Pride back to Belleville.

Very truly yours,

Steven J. Rovell

    2nd Ward Councilman



Belleville is a great place in which to live. It is 20 Minutes from New York City, 40 minutes from the Jersey Shore (Beach) and 60 minutes from the Delaware Water Gap. It has a rich history including a part in the Revolutionary War, the Industrial Revolution, the Civil War, World War I and II as well as part of Rock and Roll history. The Four Seasons, Connie Francis and My Chemical Romance have called Belleville home. It has one of the most beautiful Cherry Blossom displays in the world.


We need our Township employees to realize that government is a customer service business.


Our current Council has the Experience, Ethics, and Education to navigate our community  through these challenging times. We have a proven track record of working together  to serve the best interest of the community.


I am not a politician. I am however a public servant.  I am not controlled by any Political Boss, Machine or Political Party.  I believe my first responsibility is to the people of Belleville. The Council serves and represents the community.
