NOT GUILTY

In a surprising move (to me, anyway) the man who shot Officer Marc Hanly was found not guilty of every charge except "recklessly endangering a civilian".

Billboards again

Posted by Linda Shockley on August 16, 2016 at 8:40pm 4 Comments

Whoever owns the billboard that's right next to the Ron Wise Auto Body place just put up a new billboard, higher than the old one  had been and also appears to be LED-lit. And it faces Ridley Park. I and my neighbors will see this one all the time; it's also higher than the trees. I see it now so when it's lit I'll probably be able to read it.

Use and occupation certificate

Posted by Margaret Faggiolo on June 30, 2016 at 3:35pm 4 Comments

Does anyone know where to find written codes for this rental inspection? I find it ridiculous that I cannot have downspout drain into driveway or sidewalk. Must drain into grass? Really??? Some of Borough buildings are in violation as well as probably half of private homes. Inspector makes his declaration but would actually like to see in writing. Supposedly EPArules. My rental is in good condition but this nitpicking just makes me want to sell and get out of RP. Not worth owning property…

Someone explain this borough to me

Posted by Michelle O on May 21, 2016 at 10:00am 9 Comments

Three and a half years ago I moved to this town. I rented a house for a little over a year, and then purchased a house near the lake after that.  Thus began my nightmare stay in Ridley Park.

Being a first-time homebuyer, I'm sure I made some mistakes. The house I purchased had been vacant for some time and the man who sold it (a realtor), flipped it.  He purchased the house in January 2014 and I bought it from him in July 2014. It apparently met whatever requirements the…
