***Final Storm Update - March 13th at 5pm – All homes in town should have power. Please call O&R if your home is still without power and email RonKistner@Allendalenj.gov. We are aware of several homes where service can’t be restored until a licensed electrician makes repairs to the homeowner’s equipment.
The Borough will not be picking up storm debris curbside. Winter Storm Quinn was not declared a Federal disaster. Therefore, we will not receive any outside funding to cover the costs that have been incurred, which are significant.
The Recycling Center will be open from 9am – 3pm on Wed. (3/14), Thurs. (3/15) & Friday (3/16) and on Saturday (3/17) from 9am – 3:30pm. We hope to open on Sunday as well. You may bring recycling or storm-related debris such as loose brush and tree limbs up to 4 inches in diameter only. Any large debris items should be handled by a private contractor. No private contractors will be allowed to drop storm debris at the compost site. Residents will not need a permit to use the compost area this week.
The Borough would like to support and assist residents who sustained damage to their homes and property as a result of this storm. Effective immediately through March 26, 2018, the Borough of Allendale hereby:
• Waives the municipal fees for construction permits issued to repair damage sustained as a result of Winter Storm Quinn. Please note that a permit will still be required.
• Waives the requirement to obtain a tree permit to remove trees due to Winter Storm Quinn related damage.
• Will permit property owners to remove and/or prune Borough Shade Trees, which sustained damage due to Winter Storm Quinn, at the property owner’s expense.
Our sincere thanks to the Allendale Volunteer Fire Department, the Allendale Police Department, CERT, and our Department of Public Works. They spent 72 hours straight responding to hundreds of emergency issues and once again kept Allendale safe. We’d also like to recognize the true Allendale spirit of all those residents who took in neighbors, hosted dinners, and reached out to others who suffered through this storm and its devastating aftereffects.
Finally, thank you again for your patience, fortitude, and compassion during the past seven days. As always, we urge you to continue to check the Borough website, Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates on Borough related issues.***
