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 effort; 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 “The Grove
Inn”) 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!

LINDENWOLD - CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICE
The Code Enforcement Office would like to bring to your attention some of the top
violations and ask that you take the time to CLEAN up your
property to avoid a violation letter or summons for
noncompliance:

that may cause a safety hazard to the public. The grass
along the curb & sidewalks are the responsibility of the
property owner to be maintained.
3. Snow removal – Snow & Ice must be removed from your sidewalks & Gutters, within
2 hours of daylight after an event has occurred. Please move all vehicles from the
street, in order for the Highway Department to plow your streets efficiently.

5. Parking of Trailers, Boats, Campers, and Buses on streets is prohibited.
6. Unlicensed Dogs and Cats – All dogs and cats must be licensed. The maximum limit
is three dogs and three cats per household. The leash law applies to both dogs and

7. Fences shall be maintained in good repair. – “Good repair” meaning but not limited
to, no broken pieces, no holes, and no peeling paint.
The Code Enforcement Office would like to thank all of the residents, who may have
received violations, for their cooperation in correcting any violations or complaints that
were received by our office. We appreciate your efforts in helping to keep Lindenwold
clean and looking good. After all, a property that is full of junk storage, trash, junk
vehicles, high grass, and unfiltered pools, affect your community. Not only in quality of
life issues, but these violations also depreciate your property value.
To report a violation or to file a complaint, please contact the Code Enforcement Office at
856-783-2121 ext. 248, or 238 (9:00am-4:00pm Mon.-Fri.)
— DISTRACTED DRIVING —
Accidents caused by distracted driving are particularly tragic, because of how avoidable
they are. 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.
See more at: www.padd.org
What is Distracted Driving?
• Texting/talking on the phone
• Eating & Drinking
• Talking to passengers
• Using a navigation system
• Checking emails and social media sites
• Reading, including maps
• Watching a video
• Changing the radio/CD’s/iPods
• Grooming
What are the types of Distracted Driving?
• Visual - Distractions that take your eyes off the road.
• Manual - Distractions that take your hands off the wheel.
• Cognitive - Distractions that take your mind off the task of driving.

CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR CHOICE...

The п¬Ѓre and public works
departments are asking for your help.
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.
INDOOR SAFETY FOR WINTER
Heat your Home Safely
If you plan to use a wood stove, п¬Ѓreplace
or space heater, be extremely careful.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
remember these safety tips:
• Use fireplaces, wood stoves or other
combustion heaters only if they are
properly vented to the outside and do not
leak flue gas into the indoor air space.
• Do not burn paper in a fireplace.
• Ensure adequate ventilation if you must use a kerosene heater.
• Use only the type of fuel your heater is designed to use – don’t
substitute.
• Do not place a space heater within 3 feet of anything that may
catch on п¬Ѓre, such as drapes, furniture or bedding, and never
cover your space heater.
• Never place a space heater on top of furniture or near water.
• Never leave children unattended near a space heater.
• Make sure that the cord of an electric heater is not a tripping
hazard, but do not run the cord under carpets or rugs.
• Avoid using extension cords to plug in your space heater.
• If your space heater has a damaged electrical cord or produces
sparks, do not use it.
• Store a multipurpose, dry-chemical fire extinguisher near the area
to be heated.
• Protect yourself and your loved ones from carbon monoxide (CO)
poisoning by installing a battery-operated CO detector and by
never using generators, grills, camping stoves or similar devices
indoors.

If there is a power failure:
• Use battery-powered flashlights or lanterns rather than candles
if possible.
• Never leave lit candles unattended.
• Never use a charcoal or gas grill indoors-the fumes are deadly.
• Never use an electric generator indoors, inside the garage or
near the air intake of your house because of the risk of carbon
monoxide poisoning.

The Lindenwold Police Department has adopted a
“community policing”philosophy. As a part of this philosophy,
officers 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 officer 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 officers were promoted to the rank of
Sergeant.
Ptlm. Martin Hayden has been with the police
department for 2 years.
Ptlm. Edward O’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 offices 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 officers. 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 officers will
receive several more weeks of training through the department’s
field training program. Both of these officers will be fine additions
to our staff 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

or are aware of anyone dumping illegally
NO

Department immediately.
BICYCLE SAFETY
Most people don’t know that bicycles are
subject to the same regulations as motor
vehicles. Bicycles are required to ride WITH
traffic 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.

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 didn’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,“In a real situation, the money
isn’t returned, I keep it.” 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 ’s. This was truly an
educational experience for Mr. Mazzeo’s
class and the Municipal employees
loved sharing in the experience.

From the words of Mr. Mazzeo:
“The students had a great time. They
loved being able to pay their “taxes” 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.”
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
Jersey’s greatest threats to clean and
plentiful water and that’s why we’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 Jersey’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 office 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 flow
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 people’s
property.
2. Make sure you know your town’s or
agency’s requirements and comply with
them. It’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.
