Information and Reminders from West Orange Township

February 10, 2014 at 9:20 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ -  Here are some important information and reminders from West Orange Township:

New email available for snow removal requests

West Orange township has set up a new Email to report unplowed roads.  Despite the Department of Public Works ongoing efforts during this difficult winter to plow the township's more than 100 miles of roads, it still takes time to get the job done.  If your road has not been plowed or needs to be plowed again, residents are asked to wait for two hours after the conclusion of the snow or ice storm.  At that time, send an email to snow@westorange.org with your complete road name and it will be passed along directly to the Dept. of Public Works. You can also call The Snow Hotline: 973-325-SNOW (7669).

To participate, residents can post  a question to the Town Facebook page in advance, or log on to the Town Facebook page at 1 p.m. on Feb. 19. You will be able to post your question as a comment to our post.
 
No plastic bags allowed in single stream recycling
 
While the township's new single-stream recycling has been a huge hit, there have been issues with residents placing their recycling in plastic bags in the containers for pickups.  The bags interfere with the sorting mechanism on the trucks, and residents are asked to NOT place recycling in plastic bags.
 
Mayor Parisi's open office hours
 
Mayor Robert Parisi will hold his bi-monthly office hours on Thursday, Feb. 13 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  No appointment is necessary and all residents are welcome.

Going for Brass

I get all teary-eyed watching the Olympics on TV.  You  know, the human drama, the sacrifice, the dedication, the thrill of competition, the athletic lip sync murmur to the national anthem on the podium.  

 

This year I discovered that there are many other Olympic champions besides the usual cadre of spring-wound gymnastic pixies and ferociously wedged, hairless swimmers ...

Some Like it Hot

“Oh boy!” exclaimed my husband. “There’s a hot sauce shop in town!”

We were away antiquing for the weekend in a quaint village populated by Bed and Breakfasts, art galleries, and apparently, a hot sauce shop. For my husband, this was like discovering that someone had bought you a lottery ticket and you won… if the lottery prize was a fireball that would ...

Ionesco’s ‘Exit the King’ Makes for Powerful Drama at New Jersey Shakespeare Theatre

MADISON, NJ – There’s dying and then there’s dying in long, drawn-out agony. Well, if you’ve been king for 400 years, you won’t disappear quietly. No doubt King Berenger thinks he’s immortal and, like many of us today, lingers long after he’s of any use to himself or others.

The king on "Exit The King" is ravenously alive early on, still ...
