OPEN LETTER TO SHADE TREE COMMISSION CHAIRMAN JOHN HOSBACH

February 6, 2017 At a Public Meeting of the Shade Tree Commission (STC), Chairman John Hosbach asked me if I had "bashed the Shade Tree Commission on Ridley Park Online (RPOL)."  John had been prompted by another member of the Commission to ask me that question because that is how he/she interprets some comments I posted on RPOL. Since I was challenged in a Public Forum, I will respond in this Public Forum.  I will also reply directly to Chairman Hosbach.  He may choose to post his reply here…See More

Charade of Nay Sayers at Council Meeting - SORA Revitalization Proposal

Posted by Jared Brennan on February 22, 2017 at 12:00am 1 Comment

Tonight's council meeting turned into a comical charade of "nay sayers" trying to create an atmosphere of fear and misinformation in regards to the proposed revitalization in the business district by Sora , a real estate Investment firm. 

After several past public meetings with SORA, the next logical step was to have the Business Owners meet with SORA to answer questions and concerns.  This took place in Borough Hall on Thursday Feb 16.  The owners wanted a meeting where they…

Verizon Installing Fios - Complaints by Residents

Posted by Jared Brennan on February 10, 2017 at 8:32am 0 Comments

We've been receiving numerous complaints from residents on Hillside Road and Burk Avenue regarding Verizon's installation of Fios to these neighborhoods.  Any rightfully so. 

Seems that Verizon has filed the necessary requests with the Borough of Ridley Park to "open the street" for installation of Fios.  Whenever a utility company wants to get access to the "right of way" along the streets to install their lines or equipment, they must advise and request permission from the…

Politics

Posted by Lynne Leach on January 22, 2017 at 11:18am 1 Comment

Jared's description about Borough Manager and the strong political influences of the Party leader and State rep. also apply to the School Boards in Del. County, including Ridley School District. How do you think that district administrators and teachers get hired, despite "sealed" files from previous employment by other school districts ?

The voting public need to demand transparency AND integrity from borough, school district, county, state, and national representatives - all…

Ridley Park Borough Managers' Job Title vs. Ridley Park Borough Managers' Job

Posted by Jared Brennan on January 21, 2017 at 12:00pm 5 Comments

A Borough Manager's job description is broad and expansive.  Constantly changing and ever challenging, the many duties of a Borough Manager include: keeping the financial status of a borough current and accurate ( transparent to all ), constantly search for grants and financial opportunities in the borough's interest, preparing financial reports, working with auditors (state and local) to maintain financial protocol, answering residents concerns, following up on complaints and resident…

Tasmania, Australia

Been in Tasmania the last few days seeing some of the interesting sights they have here. Went to Cradle Mountain for the day, got to see the amazing Tasmanian devil.  Quite small little animal, got to watch some younger ones being fed. Very entertaining to see which one is the strongest & meanest one.
