Village of Ridgewood Snow and Ice Reminders


the staff of the Ridgewoodblog

Ridgewood NJ, looks like more ice than snow but just a few house keeping reminders from the Village manager :

First don’t for get to bring your cans to the curb.
As a reminder, if it is snowing when you leave your home in the morning or if it is icy, please place your garbage cans at the end of your driveway for collection. The Village will resume rear yard garbage collection as quickly as possible after the snowstorm, but please continue to put your garbage cans at the end of your driveway until you have a clear path to them.  We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our Village employees safe.  There is no garbage or recycling pickup on Monday, January 21st, due to the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. 

And secondly be a good neighbor .All sidewalks in residential districts must be cleared within 24 hours of the snow falling. Please do not place snow into the street; instead, place it back onto your own property.  In addition, if you have a fire hydrant on your property, please clear it of any snow accumulation.

Village of Ridgewood Snow and Ice Must be Removed from All Sidewalks within 24 hours

January 21,2016
the staff of the Ridgewood blog
A special reminder to those who have spoken out in opposition to “Council majority” proposals –

Ridgewood NJ, Per section 249-1 of the Village Code, all snow and/or ice must be removed from sidewalks abutting Village streets within 24 hours after a snow storm has ended.  And, the snow and/or ice that you do remove may not be placed in the street so as to impede the flow of traffic.

Based on the enforcement efforts VIllage Manager Roberta Sonenfeld directed toward compliance of the Village’s leaf removal regulations, I suspect the same level of enforcement, or greater, to be directed at compliance of Village snow and ice removal regulations.

And if you don’t think that someone at Village Hall is closely watching the properties of those us who speak out against them, just knock on some doors in the neighborhood surrounding the Irene Habernickel Family Park and ask what happened to some of the TAXPAYERS up there who spoke out publicly against the plan to house HealthBarn USA at 1057 Hillcrest Road.

Remember folks, “Somebody’s going to pay for that.” (Although, it was not meant as a threat.)
