Bergenfield Department of Public Works Heroes Recognized for Retrieving Misplaced DAV Package


In a commendable display of dedication and vigilance, Bergenfield Department of Public Works (DPW) workers Lawrence Tonia and Francis Gomez recently uncovered a crucial FedEx package destined for the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Bergenfield Chapter 32. The package, containing specialized license plates, registration, and title for the new DAV van, had mistakenly found its way into the trash, depriving the DAV of its rightful delivery.

Tonia and Gomez, while diligently carrying out their duties, recognized the significance of the documents and promptly acted by bringing the package to the attention of the Bergenfield Police Department. The Police Department, in turn, acted swiftly to alert the DAV and ensure the safe return of the essential documents.

He further commended the DPW workers, stating, "Your prompt and thoughtful response stands as a testament to the exceptional service provided as employees of the Bergenfield DPW."
