- · CHEERS: The Brooklawn Board of Education
and the Brooklawn Board of Education signed an Inter Local Service agreement
this past week. It is nice to see the two governing bodies working together to
save the taxpayers money.
- · Cheers: John Buddendorf, owner of Laundrymaxx public Laundromat located at the corner of N. Broadway and Mercer St., Gloucester City. The Laundromat caught fire on Friday afternoon, June 13. John and company worked feverishly all weekend and had the Laundromat reopened two days later on Sunday morning June 15, 08. His hard work is appreciated by the people in the neighborhood, especially those without cars.
- · CHEERS: To the Borough of Brooklawn for cleaning up the river embankment along New Broadway. A nice improvement from what it was. Instead of weeds and overgrowth those who are traveling home from work actually have a nice waterfront view while they wait for their turn to drive around the traffic circle.
- · CHEERS: John Hindsley, past Commander of American Legion Post 135 writes, “A Big Salute to the residents of The 800 and 900 blocks of Monmouth Street for the number of American Flags on display. This is year around, not just holidays !!! All the flags are in good shape, too. I wish more Americans would display "Old Glory" as well. Remember, please replace any flag that is faded, ripped, or torn. You may turn them into your nearest American Legion or VFW for proper disposal.
- · JEERS: My granddaughter Brandie writes, “Pop Pop I am very upset with the person who writes parking tickets for the City. Today was sweeper day on Rutgers Avenue. Even though I was parked in our driveway, I received a ticket because my car bumper was over hanging on part of the sidewalk. The ticket was for blocking the sidewalk. I don’t think it is fair that this person would give me a ticket for such a minor infraction. We have three cars we squeeze into the driveway every day since there is no place to park on our street.
(One side of the street is no parking all the time. On sweeper day there is no parking on either side).
“Where does the City expect me to park my vehicle if not in my driveway? Therefore I am asking you to give a BIG THUMBS DOWN to the City’s Parking Enforcement Officer.”
