LINDENWOLD THE LINDENWOLD в�… DIVERSE в�… PROUD в�… CONNECTED в�… GREEN Message from the Oп¬ѓce of the Mayor FALL 2014 Volume 7 - Issue Media Committee: Cheryle randolph-Sharpe Councilwoman Dawn S. Thompson Business Administrator / CFO Debbie Jackson Borough Clerk, RMC Brenda roach Library Supervisor Comments/Suggestions www.lindenwoldnj.gov Greetings, Residents of Lindenwold: I would п¬Ѓrst like to take this time to thank our Media Committee for their time and dedication in putting this Newsletter together. Over the past year, a Revitalization Committee has been formed with the cooperation of our Police Department, Construction Department, Public Works Department, Borough Council and myself. The mission of this committee is to MAyor richard E. roach, Jr. seek ways of how we can change the face of Lindenwold. We have started by looking at areas of our community that need concentrated eп¬Ђort; not just enforcing people to cut their grass, but installation of security cameras on Gibbsboro Road, enforcing shopping centers to п¬Ѓx their parking lots and broken signs, etc. Some of these changes are already under way. The Iron Horse Saloon (previously вЂњThe Grove InnвЂќ) has been taken down, and a brand new Family Dollar is going to take its place. This will be a great addition to Gibbsboro Road. Additionally, some of our apartment complexes have shown an interest in getting security cameras, and one of our apartment complex owners has already taken steps to install security cameras and lighting. With this action and more, Lindenwold will be a better and safer place to live and work. The Revitalization Committee is working diligently and needs your help to change the Face of Lindenwold. Wishing you all a Safe and Happy Holiday Season!

If all drivers kept in mind that every time they pick up their phone to take a call or send a text message, they are simultaneously endangering their own and others' lives, accidents may be less prone to happen. Unfortunately, the casualness of a call or text misleadingly prompts drivers to think themselves the rare exception.

Please remember to shovel out around п¬Ѓre hydrants after each snowfall. It is very important for residents and business people to keep hydrants clear of snow and visible from the street. If the п¬Ѓre department has to spend time trying to п¬Ѓnd a п¬Ѓre hydrant under the snow, they lose precious time needed to п¬Ѓght п¬Ѓres. Please help us out by keeping your п¬Ѓre hydrants clear of snow. The house you help save may be your own.

Brennan USING A CELL PHONE WHILE DRIVING FINES LINDENWOLD POLICE DEPARtMENt 2 Egg Harbor Road Lindenwold, NJ 82 Oп¬ѓce - (856) 784-7566 Fax - (856) 784-846 Dispatch - (856) 784-48 On July , 24 the penalties for operating a motor vehicle while using a hand held wireless communication device (cell phone) were increased. вЂњUseвЂќ of a cell phone includes, but is not limited to, talking or listening to another person, texting, or sending and receiving electronic messages. If a driver is found guilty of violating the statute (3:4-7.3), he/she faces the following: First oп¬Ђense: $2 to $4 Second oп¬Ђense: $4 to $6 Third & subsequent: Up to $8, three points on license, and a possible -day suspension of license. More information can be found at: www.state.nj.us/mvc/About/safety_cellphone.htm www.Lindenwoldpd.com. The Lindenwold Police Department has adopted a вЂњcommunity policingвЂќphilosophy. As a part of this philosophy, oп¬ѓcers will be randomly stopping into businesses in town while they are open to introduce themselves to the owner or employees and ask if there any concerns that the oп¬ѓcer can address. It is our sincere hope that we can foster a better relationship with the community and work together to make Lindenwold a great place to live and work. On October , 24 three oп¬ѓcers were promoted to the rank of Sergeant. Ptlm. Martin Hayden has been with the police department for 2 years. Ptlm. Edward OвЂ™Donnell has been with the police department for 5 years. Ptlm. Robert Helveston has been with the police department for years. All of the Sergeants will be assigned to the Patrol Division. Congratulations Sergeants! The long awaited renovations to Police Department are set to begin this fall. Since all of the borough administrative oп¬ѓces moved to the building at 5 N. White Horse Pike, the police department and municipal court will occupy the entire building at 2 Egg Harbor Rd. Currently, the police department occupies only half of the building. We are hoping to move in to the building early in 25. On July , 24 the Lindenwold Police Department welcomed two new oп¬ѓcers. Thomas Mallon and Dustin Dilger were sworn in at the regular council meeting. Both entered the Camden County Police Academy on July 4th to begin 2 weeks of training. Following their graduation from the academy, the oп¬ѓcers will receive several more weeks of training through the departmentвЂ™s п¬Ѓeld training program. Both of these oп¬ѓcers will be п¬Ѓne additions to our staп¬Ђ and we have no doubt they will make a positive impact on the community. NO LITTERING & NO DUMPING Ordinances #124-2 and 124-7 prohibit dumping and littering in public places. Violators of these ordinances are subject to a п¬Ѓne of $2, or imprisonment for a term NO not to exceed days, or both. If you see LITTER ING or are aware of anyone dumping illegally NO within the Borough, please contact the DUMPING Department of Public Works or the Police ALLOWED Department immediately. BICYCLE SAFETY Most people donвЂ™t know that bicycles are subject to the same regulations as motor vehicles. Bicycles are required to ride WITH traп¬ѓc as near to the right side of the roadway as possible. Bicycles are permitted to enter turning lanes to make turns as would a motor vehicle. New Jersey statute 39:4-10 mandates that bicycles be equipped with lights when operated at night; a white light on the front and a red light on the back. It is recommended that the rider wear bright colored clothing so as to be more visible to motorists. New Jersey statute 39:4-10.1 makes bicycle helmets mandatory for any rider or passenger under the age of 7. Although it is not mandatory, it is recommended that all riders and passengers wear helmets.

MAZZEOвЂ™S CLASS VISIT Senior/disabled, and / or veteranвЂ™s deductions are available for those who qualify. Please call the tax oп¬ѓce for more information. 783-22 ext 227 PTr reimbursement - (Senior/Disabled Mr. MazzeoвЂ™s High School Integrated Academics Class visited the Lindenwold Municipal Building for a tour on September 23, 24. They were greeted at the front door by their tour guides Mayor Richard Roach and Mrs. Thompson, Business Administrator. There were seven students and two teachers (Mr. Mazzeo and Mr. Johnson). The students were very excited about the tour, but what they didnвЂ™t know is that their tour would include experiencing real situations that occur on a day to day at the Municipal Building. One of the highlights of the tour was that each student got an opportunity to pay taxes. Each one received an envelope from the Tax Collector which included a quarterly tax bill and play money to pay their taxes. They all had an opportunity to go the tax window to pay their taxes and received a stamped paid receipt. As a souvenir, the play money was returned. The Tax Collector told them,вЂњIn a real situation, the money isnвЂ™t returned, I keep it.вЂќ The students all laughed. Other experiences included testing a smoke detector to make sure it was operating properly; completing assessor property cards to determine how many bathrooms, property dimensions, etc.; discussing types of code violations, seeing the Linden Tree that was planted by the Environmental Commission on Arbor Day 24. The tour ended with each student receiving a goody bag while watching a slide presentation of pictures of Lindenwold dated back to the early вЂ™s. This was truly an educational experience for Mr. MazzeoвЂ™s class and the Municipal employees loved sharing in the experience.

They loved being able to pay their вЂњtaxesвЂќ this year. They all said they didn't realize the cost of taxes and that you had to pay them quarterly. I think it was a real eye opener. They also enjoyed seeing what everyone does at Borough Hall. Dan and I were very excited with the trip. We loved that you could incorporate the students in the process. We really appreciate you allowing us to come in and to include us in your day to day activities.вЂќ SOLUtIONS tO StORM WAtER POLLUtION Pollution on streets, parking lots and lawns is washed by the rain into storm drains, then directly into our drinking water supplies, and the oceans and lakes our children play in. Fertilizer, oil, pesticides, detergents, pet waste and grass clippings end up in our drinking water. Storm water pollution is one of New JerseyвЂ™s greatest threats to clean and plentiful water and thatвЂ™s why weвЂ™re doing something about it. By sharing the responsibility and making small, easy changes in our daily lives, we can keep common pollutants out of the storm water. As part of New JerseyвЂ™s initiative to keep our water clean and plentiful and to meet federal requirements, many municipalities and other public agencies including colleges and military bases must adopt ordinances or other rules prohibiting various activities that contribute to storm water pollution. Breaking these rules can result in п¬Ѓnes or other penalties. As a resident, business or other member of the community, it is important to know these easy things you can do every day to protect our water: LIMIT YOUR USE OF FERTILIZER AND PESTICIDES . Do a soil test to see if you need a fertilizer 2. Do not apply fertilizers if heavy rain is predicted. 3. Look into alternatives for pesticides. 4. Maintain a small lawn and keep the rest of your property or yard in natural state with trees and other native vegetation that require little or no fertilizer. 5. If you use fertilizers and pesticides, follow the instructions on the label on how to correctly apply it. PROPERLY USE AND DISPOSE OF HAZARDOUS PRODUCTS . Hazardous products include some household or commercial cleaning products, lawn and garden care products, motor oil, anti-freeze and paints. 2. Do not pour any hazardous products down a storm drain because the storm drains are usually connected to local water bodies and the water is not treated. 3. If you have hazardous products in your home or workplace, make sure you store or dispose of them properly. Read the label for guidance. 4. Recycle used motor oil. 5. Contact your municipality, county or facility management oп¬ѓce for the locations of hazardous waste disposal facilities KEEP POLLUTION OUT OF STORM DRAINS . Municipalities and many other public agencies are required to mark certain storm drain inlets with messages reminding people that storm drains are connected to local water bodies. 2. Do not let sewage or other waste п¬‚ow into a storm water system. CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR PET . Many municipalities and public agencies must enact and enforce local pet waste rules. An example is requiring pet owners or their keepers to pick up and properly dispose of pet waste dropped on public or other peopleвЂ™s property. 2. Make sure you know your townвЂ™s or agencyвЂ™s requirements and comply with them. ItвЂ™s the law: Remember to use newspapers, bags or pooper-scoopers to pick up waste. Dispose of the wrapped pet waste in the trash or unwrapped waste in a toilet and never discard pet waste in a storm drain. DON'T FEED WILDLIFE . Do not feed wildlife, such as ducks and geese. 2. Many municipalities and other public agencies must enact and enforce a rule that prohibits wildlife feeding. DON'T LITTER . Place litter in trash receptacles. 2. Recycle, Recycle, Recycle. 3. Participate in community clean-ups. DISPOSE OF YARD WASTE PROPERLY . Keep leaves and grass out of storm drains. 2. If your municipality or agency has yard waste collection rules, follow them. 3. Use leaves and grass clippings as a resource for compost. 4. Use a mulching mower that recycles grass clippings back into the lawn.
