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

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

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

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…

Elizabeth Tompers died

Her obituary says she founded the Ridley Park Shade Tree Commission. If there's time to organize this, she should be commemorated this Saturday at the Arbor Day observation.

Changing Tactics for Use and Occupancy Certificates

Hearing that early 4,300 Realtors® delivered a definitive message to every member of the PA House that a ‘yes’ vote on House Bill 1437 by Rep. Jamie Santora (R-Delaware Co.) is what Pennsylvanian's wanted, the amendment passed 194-0 on Wednesday and has a third consideration after primary election day. 

HB 1437more clearly defines “unfit for habitation” to provide better guidance to local code enforcement officials who are conducting resale use and occupancy inspections. Many…

Electrical pole being held up by rope? Does PECO know?

The pole located on Ridley (E.Ridley) street across from the orange barriers on the bridge. 

I don't understand how our elected officials can ignore this issue for years.  Has it been three years now?   It can be seen from the windows of borough Hall.  If this was in front of my house I would call PECO and have it fixed.  This is at the corner where children cross to go to school and along the path to walk in and out of our town.  Can someone explain why an electrical pole is being…

What are the Orange dividers on the Hinkley / Ridley bridge for?

Does any one know ?  They have been on this bridge for a long time and obstructing the view of drivers.  They have now become a road hazard.
