Coffee With A Cop

The Merchantville Police Department and The Station Coffee will be hosting a "Coffee With A Cop" event on Saturday, May 22nd from 9:00-11:00 a.m. and invite you to stop in and say hello. The mission of Coffee with a Cop is to break down the barriers between police officers and the citizens they serve by taking time to meet at neutral locations, sit down with officers and ask questions or share what’s on their mind. It provides the opportunity for citizens and police officers get to know each other, have real conversations about issues that matter and discover mutual goals for the communities they live in and serve.

Centre St. Construction

The Borough notified residents about construction improvements on Centre Street, between Cove Road and Locust Street, scheduled to begin on May 10, 2021 in Pennsauken Township. Prior to this residents can expect Centre Street between Cedar Avenue and Rogers Avenue to be shut down so that PSE&G can address gas leaks in the area, scheduled between May 3rd and May 8th. As this project progresses south on Centre Street into Merchantville the contractor will provide advance notice to the business district and residents so that they may prepare accordingly. At this time we do not have a date certain that construction will begin in Merchantville and further information will be released as it is received. Once construction begins in Merchantville, all detours will be clearly marked with reflective signage and the Borough will be providing parking alternatives during to accommodate businesses, residents and visitors alike. Finally, the construction will not negatively impact Merchantville School drop off or pick up. That area of Centre Street is scheduled to be worked on during the summer months while school is out of session. Periodic updates will be posted advising of any changes in the traffic control plan and detour information will be posted on the front page of the Borough's website, www.merchantvillenj.gov.. The estimated construction duration is 250 calendar days from beginning to end.

Winter Storm Advisory

The Borough of Merchantville continues to monitor the forecast for our first winter storm this season. In anticipation, we want to remind the residents of a few ways they can assist us in ensuring the roads are safe and passable. Depending on the duration and amount of snowfall, Borough trucks may plow your street several times. The Borough reminds residents to park all vehicles off the street and in driveways, to help plows navigate safely and efficiently. Where driveways are not available, we ask residents to please limit parking to one side of the street. Unless it’s absolutely necessary, please stay home and off the road for the duration of the storm. Limiting travel during and immediately after snowfall allows plow crews and emergency personnel to do their job safely, and greatly reduces the potential for accidents.
 
Here are some helpful hints to make snow removal less frustrating:
· Remove portable basketball nets from the street in front of your house.
· Do not park cars on the street from one hour after the snow has continuously fallen until 12 hours after the snow has stopped. This speeds the removal process and prevents cars from being plowed in.
· If possible, wait until the Borough plows have made a few passes on your street before cleaning your driveway.
· Do NOT shovel or blow snow into the street. Snow blowers should be adjusted so they blow snow toward your house.
· To ensure the safety of pedestrians, residents are reminded they must remove snow from sidewalks within 24 hours after completion of a snow fall
 
The end of the snowfall doesn’t mean the end of our work. Public Works employees will be working continuously to provide the best possible service to residents, and to ensure roads are cleared as quickly and safely as possible. Thank you for your help during this storm!
