No 2015 Tax increase, Volunteerism and The Lake overgrowth

According to the preliminary budget, Ridley Park residents should not expect a tax increase in 2015. Taxes will remain at 8.14 mills, or $814 per $100K of assessed home value. The final budget is yet to be confirmed.

Ridley Park Police have a 3.25% raise due from their contract, and other Borough employees have a 2% increase in store.

Correction to Vote Date in previous post

Hi everyone, I was incorrect about when the council is to vote (if there is a vote ) when I stated today's date / meeting.  I misinterpreted some information and it would make sense that if there was to be voting it MUST be done in public.  They might not tell us what they are voting on, since this council majority does not offer information to us at all about any personnel issues.  The vote will have to be at the December work shop meeting.  Can't explain what this date was for at the…

What an atmosphere at Council Meeting

Missing Person Alert!  Bob Boland showed up at the council meeting tonight with his gang.  We haven't seen Mr. Boland since the debacle of the Billboard that he orchestrated.  Found out why he showed up.  He was receiving numerous phone calls about the massive parking tickets that have been ordered by Clyde, our acting Chief.  ( Is there any coincidence this action started after Bonnie was asked to resign? Retaliation? ) Over the past two weeks residents have been ticketed throughout…

Cold Weather Coming!

Any last minute gardening should be done today or tomorrow.  Use some of the leaves to protect your perennial bulbs.  Trim the tea roses if stems are way too long.

I planted over 200 bulbs in a 6 x 6 area 2 weeks ago.  Within 2 hrs the squirrel were out digging them up!  And I had soaked them in water and sprayed with a squirrel repellent!  So Lily, my dog, and I trekked up to Home Depot.  Bought some screening and gardening nails and with fingers crossed it seems to have done…

Bringing business in to Ridley

The Ridley  Township Board of Commissioners is hosting a public forum on Thursday, November 20th @ 6:00pm. They will be discussing their efforts to try and make the area of MacDade Blvd more enticing to businesses through a new program. The more businesses we can bring to the Ridley area the better for everyone.

Hopefully some residents of Ridley Park will join me and we can see what this is all about.
