Recycling Wednesday, November 15th : Plastic, Cans and Bottle

Please Note: No Council meeting this week


St. Nicholas Ave. Pedestrian Bridge

The contractor has informed us that they expect the bridge replacement project to get underway tentatively the week of 12/11.  This will start with demolition of the wooden bridge, construction of new concrete foundations, and then erection of the new aluminum bridge. Construction should take under a week if the weather cooperates.  Our Borough Engineer will have their bridge inspector on site to monitor the work.


Road Work on Lakeshore Drive 

We have been informed that the work that Veolia needs to do on Lakeshore Drive will commence during the Week of November 13th – November 17th.

Work will be suspended the week of November 20 for the holiday, resuming on Monday, November 27th. During this period, preparatory work will be finalized, including the installation of a service bypass, connection of pipes at Roden Way, and work to facilitate the BCUA repair process. This phase will take about 3 - 4 weeks.

On December 19, Bergen County Utilities Authority (BCUA) are scheduled to repair the manhole which will take approximately 2 weeks. The final work will be completed in January 2024 with installation of the remaining pipes. When this work is fully completed, Lakeshore Drive will be paved as the last step of the process. However, because the utility work is taking longer than originally projected, the final paving work will not be completed until the Spring.

We appreciate your cooperation during this process and to heed any notices of road closures and limited access via Lakeshore. 

Haworth Fire Department

As we move deeper into the 2023 Fall season, The Haworth Fire Department has some very important tips to ensure your and your family safety during the colder weather:

  • With daylight savings time, please get in the habit of changing the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Check outdoor electrical outlets and other electrical appliances for animal nests and to ensure proper wiring.
  • Remove leaves and trash from carports and garages: Combustible materials are dangerous if they are exposed to heated automobile components, especially under the vehicle.
  • Let ALL gas power equipment sit for approximately 30 minutes before placing it inside to be sure there is no possibility of fire.
  • When using a lawnmower and or a gas blower, never refuel them while they are still hot. Give them a few minutes to cool down.
  • Keep combustible liquids away from heat sources.


Generator Safety:

  • Follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines when using generators.
  • Use a generator or other fuel-powered machines outside the home. CO fumes are odorless and can quickly overwhelm you indoors.
  • Use the appropriate size and type power cords to carry the electric load. Overloaded cords can overheat and cause fires.
  • Never run cords under rugs or carpets where heat might build up or damage to a cord may go unnoticed.
  • Never connect generators to another power source such as power lines. The reverse flow of electricity or 'backfeed' can electrocute an unsuspecting utility worker.


Heating Safety:

  • Do not use the kitchen oven range to heat your home. In addition to being a fire hazard, it can be a source of toxic fumes.
  • Alternative heaters need their space. Keep anything combustible at least 3 feet away.
  • Make sure your alternative heaters have 'tip switches.' These 'tip switches' are designed to automatically turn off the heater in the event they tip over.
  • Only use the type of fuel recommended by the manufacturer and follow suggested guidelines.
  • Never refill a space heater while it is operating or still hot.
  • Refuel heaters only outdoors.
  • Make sure wood stoves are properly installed, and at least 3 feet away from combustible materials. Ensure they have the proper floor support and adequate ventilation.
  • Use a glass or metal screen in front of your fireplace to prevent sparks from igniting nearby carpets, furniture.
  • Use a fire resistant rug in front of the fireplace or wood burning stove to catch any embers.
  • Always use a flashlight - not a candle - for emergency lighting.
  • Some smoke alarms may be dependent on your home's electrical service and could be inoperative during a power outage. Check to see if your smoke alarm uses a back-up battery and install a new battery at least once a year.
  • Smoke alarms should be installed on every level of your home and inside and outside of sleeping areas.(Highly Recommended)
  • If there is a fire hydrant near your home, keep it clear of debris and especially snow for easy access by the fire department.
