As the school year begins a reminder to be alert and to slow down on roadways when children are present especially before and after school.
I would like to acknowledge and express my gratitude to all those involved with Pompton Day. Many hours and hard work went into planning the event. Thank you to the Recreation Commission, the numerous volunteers, Borough employees, businesses/vendors and those who attend Pompton Day to make the day a success. Pompton Day continues to grow and provides a fun filled community day for all beginning with the 5k run, street fair activities and ending with the spectacular fireworks display.
Once again, residents are invited to gather on the front lawn of the Municipal Building and along Lenox Avenue to take part in the 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, September 11, 2019 beginning at 7:00pm. I would encourage you to attend as our community comes together in an effort to heal, embrace our country for its beauty and resilience to endure, and most importantly to never forget the heinous attack all Americans experienced on that fateful day.
As summer comes to an end and fall approaches the Pompton Lakes Annual River Cleanup Day has been scheduled for Sunday, September 29th, 11:00 am through 1:00pm at Hershfield Park. Volunteers are invited to return to the Park to enjoy refreshments and discuss the day’s events. The River Cleanup is organized and sponsored by the Environmental Commission in an effort to maintain a clean environment and improve the water quality of our streams and rivers as volunteers work together to provide a more suitable habitat for fish and wildlife.
In conclusion, I would like to remind residents to be mindful of the regulations for the collection of recyclables and solid waste trash. All trash should be in containers with tight secure lids that have the capacity of no more than 45 gallons nor weigh more than 60 pounds. The Department of Public Works will enforce the regulations and will notify residents with a decal sticker that indicates the reason their garbage or recycling was not picked up. Please refer to the Town Calendar for Recycling and Solid Waste Collection Regulations. If you have further questions please contact the DPW at 973-835-1465.
