From the Mayor's Desk
As the mayor of Delran Township, one of the areas that I take a great deal of pride in is the operation of the Public Works Department. Due to budgetary constraints over the last several years, the Public Works Department has shrunk by nearly 20 percent in terms of manpower. Yet during this recent snow storm, I received a number of complimentary e-mails from residents and non-residents alike who took the time to reach out to my office and express their satisfaction with the work that the road crew accomplished.
This being said, residents could help us to continue this positive trend in a number of ways. First, please let the Public Works Department finish its job before beginning to shovel out in order to ensure that driveways will not be plowed back in as the township completes the clearing of streets. Second, please adhere to the regulations concerning parking cars on roads that are designated “no parking during snow emergencies.” Third, we ask that the residents not park their cars at the edge of their driveways, as this is both dangerous and violates township ordinances. Finally, snow blowers should not direct snow into the streets as this is also a violation and creates a dangerous situation.
I would like to thank residents for their cooperation, and I appreciate anything you do to help make our roads safe.
