C'mon Bob and Mike, STEP UP - - Billboard "Lack of Information" Issue -

Deja Vu - " I don't know the answer to that question."  "Ernie, can you help me?"

Good Neighbors in snowstorm

Just want to give a heartfelt Thank You to my wonderful neighbor Mike C—he used his snowblower to clear sidewalks and driveways all along our block.   When my husband was alive he enjoyed using his snowblower to help out the neighbors also. As a widow living alone I am so grateful for all my good neighbors here in Ridley Park for their help

Fill Ridley Park Council Meetings with FinanciaL Truth

Just a simple shout out to fellow Parkers that it's time to pack our counsel meetings with the face of finance truth.  I paid 50k, and rescued my residence; now my cats and I have to pay 8800 in property tax, all while, Wile E Coyote smacks us in the Silvester puss.  If you care about Ridley Park's government off the couch and time to show the positive presence of our town at the next council meeting...without a 25% ego laser eyeball escorting resident outskys out the door

snow removal from your car

Everyone, when you clean off your car remember to clean the roof. It's the law. Leaving snow on the roof could create a danger for the driver/s behind you if it lets go & smashes into that car.
