From the Desk of Mayor Paul A. Hoelscher
STORM DAMAGE UPDATE
Our six member DPW, under the direction of our new Superintendent, Steve Nappi, continue their efforts to clear the trees that fell during the storm. In some cases, the branches are too large for the chipper and will be left at the property. The DPW will be around at another time to collect.
If you have piles of garden debris (grass clippings, small branches, leaves, etc.) at your curb, please be advised that the mixture should place in barrels or containers for pick up on Monday morning. Failure to do that will result in the debris being left at the curb. Please co-operate with this request.
There are still some phone lines hanging from trees or running across lawns. A Verizon representative suggests you call the company directly since they may be unaware of your individual circumstances. Also, please remember to advise your children not to touch or step on any wires near or on the ground.
I thank you for your cooperation, understanding and patience.
Please enjoy your weekend.
Paul A. Hoelscher
Dear Harrington Park Residents,
As your Mayor, I want to share with you what we are doing in preparation for any problems(s) that might develop in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
On Friday, March 6, 2020, we held our first meeting to organize and develop a task force to deal with potential problems. The group consisted of members of Council, the Police Department, the Ambulance Corps, Board of Health, Recreation, and local education leaders. Our goal is to provide you with the best information available, as well as protecting our residents and first responders, who may have to assist or transport those affected.
The Bergen County Health Office has provided us with the following information:
While CORVID-19 is a new disease and there is still information not known about it, the risk of contracting it in the United States still remains low.
County Tool Kit:
COVID-19: Information for Communities and the General Public
You can check back often as the County of Bergen and the State of New Jersey will update their websites on a regular basis.
Hopefully, conditions will improve and we can all get back to our normal lives.
