E-notice - March 17, 2017 - Snowstorm Follow Up

 
 

Village of Ridgewood E-Notice

SNOWSTORM FOLLOW UP AND INFORMATION ABOUT GARBAGE COLLECTION

 
         
   

March 17, 2017

Dear Resident,

Snowstorm Stella brought over eight inches of snow to the Village this week, and many of us are still digging out.  I want to thank the residents for staying indoors and not traveling during the storm.  Due to your assistance, only two motor vehicle crashes were reported and our crews doing the plowing were better able to manage the snow removal, in an attempt to keep the roadways clear.  Our crews doing the plowing and salting did a good job on the roads, despite the fact that they were challenged by large amounts of snow falling in a short amount of time.  In addition, there was sleet mixed in with the snow, and bitter cold temperatures, which turned many streets to ice.  Our crews doing the plowing also spent two nights clearing out both the streets and the parking lots of the Central Business District, the train station lot, and the Park and Ride lot.  Many of you contacted the Village to let us know where there were ice or snow issues, which allowed us to address them as quickly as possible.  We appreciate the feedback, because there is always room for improvement. Due to the continued cold temperatures and the possibility of more snow in the coming days, all garbage must continue to be brought to the end of your driveway (not in the street), for the safety of our Village employees.  This will continue through March 24th.  Backyard collection of garbage will resume on March 27th, weather permitting.   Thank you for your continued cooperation. Heather A. Mailander Village Manager 201/670-5500 x202

Attention: Ridgewood Water Customers in Ridgewood - Proposed Changes

Attention: Ridgewood Water Customers in the Village of Ridgewood

Stage II restrictions (2 days a week irrigation) were imposed in June 2016 and are still in effect in Glen Rock, Midland Park, Ridgewood and Wyckoff. Without these restrictions, the use of drinking water for irrigation will continue increasing toward levels that are unsustainable regardless of drought conditions.  To reverse this trend, an ordinance was introduced on March 8, 2017 to amend the provisions governing Water Emergencies in the Village of Ridgewood Code. Changes proposed include:

  • Making 2 days a week irrigation permanent year round,

  • Restricting irrigation hours to limit losses to evaporation,

  • Restricting irrigation using private wells to 2 days a week,

  • Adding new exemptions, including drip irrigation and smart controllers.

This ordinance applies only to Ridgewood, but it is expected that the Boroughs of Glen Rock and Midland Park, and the Township of Wyckoff will follow suit as they have in the past. Below is the proposed ordinance. Questions can be directed to Ridgewood Water at 201-670-5521 or cswater@ridgewoodnj.net
