"@Linda Shockley,  Good idea about moving cars off streets in case of snow.  What about vehicles tagged out-of-State which have barely moved since Thanksgiving?   Is that a Code Violation?  Who monitors it?"

Ridley Park - is it a sad decline

Posted by Parker Maven on January 22, 2015 at 6:00am 3 Comments

Is it just me or does anyone else see the decline of our little town?  Trash in the streets, no police presence, properties being unattended to, creeps in the streets, businesses closing up and leaving town, residents unable to get permits, a trash company that picks up "when they feel like it"....... it's an outrage!  Ridley Twp, less than 2 miles away, has it all together....we are slipping badly.  Is it all we can do but say "Isn't it a shame, it used to be such a nice town".  Where's the…

Future of Ridley Park at stake in 2015 election-- will you help?

Posted by Nina on January 20, 2015 at 10:42pm 0 Comments

We need open honest government with fiscal responsibility to manage our tax money effectively. Our local businesses need better support from council. Our property values depend on improving maintenance of parks and the lake.

The Ridley Park Democratic  Committee stands ready to support qualified…

Ridley Park's Acting Police Chief - THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

Posted by Jared Brennan on January 9, 2015 at 10:00pm 15 Comments

There is no need to whisper, this is important and we must make a stand as residents!

I've been hearing many residents asking questions about how our Borough is dealing with The Acting Chief of Police hinting that he is positioning for a " long term " disability buy out!   Many Police officers have advised that a memo was sent out explaining that our Acting Chief would be missing work due to residual health issues from a automobile accident that occurred in 2012.
