Management to update the municipality’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The original

plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain

eligibility for certain federal grants as well as make sure we are working

together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent

possible. If you are interested in learning more about this project, please

Dear Resident:

   As you may be aware, PSE&G has begun construction along Browning Road in Pennsauken Township.

This work is progressing towards Merchantville and is expected to be in the Borough on or about Monday

August 11, 2014.

     Merchantville Police Officers will be using several side streets to detour traffic during construction.

The busiest times will be when construction crosses Maple Avenue.

     The following streets will be used to detour traffic: Volan Street, Lexington Avenue,

Springfield Avenue, Euclid Avenue, Linden Avenue, Morris Street and Chestnut Avenues.

Detour signs will also be posted along the routes.

     We will be doing everything possible to lessen the inconvenience to all resident’s along the

detour routes.   If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact one of the

officers working the traffic detail or you can contact me at

856-662-0507.

Thank You,

10-28-13 - Mayor's Letter

Dear Property Owners and Residents
Enclosed please find your annual sewer bill for the calendar year 2011. The first portion
is due Monday, April 1, 2011 rather than June 1st. The second half is due October 1,
2011.
The change in billing dates from June to April and December to October has been
necessitated due to our obligation to make payments for the upgrading and relining of the
Borough’s antiquated sewer mains.
