Residents Visit Warming Center at the Library

AAA - 3/19/2018 4:13:16 PM

The Bernardsville Community Emergency Response Team and Police Department worked with Bernardsville Library staff to ensure that residents had a warm place at the library to find shelter, where they could charge their cell phones, and use the Internet during the power outages caused by back-to-back nor'easters.  Water, nutritious snacks, oatmeal, fruit drinks and coffee were available for free.  Library visitors also took advantage of the library's on-going book sale of great books.

Tree Debris Chip/Removal

Public Works - 3/16/2018 1:40:00 PM


The Road Department will be coming around to chip/remove tree debris that fell along Borough roadways (not County and not State roads).

We will only be removing debris that fell into the Borough right of way (ROW) or is from Borough trees (those within ROW). On most Borough roads the ROW is a total of 50' wide or 25' from the road centerline. Below is a sheet that lists the exceptions.

We will not be chipping/removing tree debris that residents drag to the road edge from their yards. If we cannot determine which Borough tree the debris is from, we will not be picking it up.

Since the damage is so widespread, it will take us weeks to make it around to all of our roads.

The Compost Facility on Pill Hill Road will be open to receive tree debris on Sat. 3/17, 3/24 and every Saturday after April 7 between 9:00 am - 2:30 pm.

Thank you for your assistance and patience during this clean-up effort.
