Protecting your Mailboxes during the Winter Months

Posted by Alexandria Township on February 16, 2015

Federal Guidelines dictate that the face of your mailbox should be placed 6”- 8” behind the curb. It should be firmly secured to the mail box post. Lag bolts and screws work better than nails. There are many types of posts to choose from, depending on which one you choose, will determine the life span. If your mailbox and post are a number of years old, please replace it correctly. Remember using good quality material will last the longest and good quality doesn’t necessarily mean the most expensive. Removing the snow from around your mailbox will help prevent damage to your post.

When clearing snow from your driveway, please keep in mind that Alexandria Township’s Ordinance prohibits pushing / blowing snow into the roadway. Please let your snow removal contractor know this as well and it will help maintain safe travel for all. On garbage / recycling day please keep your cans out of the roadway if possible. Save your recycling for a day when there is no snow. Please give plenty of room between you and the snow / salt trucks drivers, don’t follow too close (stay back at least 200 feet) and give the drivers plenty of room to do their job. And please remember… no parking in the roads on snow days!

Snow Plowing Driveways during the Winter Months

Posted by Alexandria Township on February 16, 2015

Important Notice for Alexandria Township Residents

There is a rising problem with some residents and/or their contractors removing snow from their driveways into the roadways. Please do not remove snow from your driveway and into the roadways! Please consider other homeowners on your street before violating the Alexandria Township Snow Removal Ordinance; which carries a fine of $1000 PER DAY!!!!

Pushing snow into your roadway will cause unsafe travel for all and added expense to our Township. The Township does not want to fine any resident if given the choice. However, this Ordinance will be enforced! When you see someone making a mess in the roadway take a moment to ask them nicely to stop. If we all work together the end result will be a good one.

To the residents that are clearing their driveways of snow properly, THANK YOU!

Alexandria Township is offering FREE RADON TEST KITS

Posted by Alexandria Township on January 14, 2015

ALEXANDRIA TOWNSHIP ANNOUNCES RADON ACTION FOR THE MONTH OF JANUARY

Alexandria Township, State of New Jersey, December 31, 2014–Mayor Paul Abraham announced today that the month of January has been designated Radon Action Month by Alexandria Township, in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Radon Program.

In announcing Radon Action Month Mayor Abraham said, “Radon is a serious health risk. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer and the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. But because radon is invisible and odorless it is easy to ignore this potential hazard in our own homes.”

Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally when uranium and radium break down in the soil and in rock formations. Radon gas moves up through the soil and finds its way into homes through cracks in the foundation and openings around pumps, pipes, and drains.

“A significant number of homes in Alexandria Township are predicted to be above the acceptable limits for radon”, Mayor Abraham said. “We would like to see as many homes tested as possible, to reduce the radon risk in Alexandria Township.”

During Radon Action Month, Alexandria Township will provide radon information; giveaway’s and free radon test kits for the first 150 township residents. Test kits will be available for purchase after that at the Clerk’s office for a nominal fee.

Radon is measured in picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) of air. The average U.S. indoor level is 1.3 pCi/L. At 4 pCi/L, the risk of lung cancer from radon is greater than the risk from fire or other home accidents. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the DEP recommend that action be taken to reduce radon levels if the level in the home is greater than or equal to 4 pCi/L.

Fortunately, testing for radon is simple and inexpensive. The DEP Radon Program can provide a list of certified companies that provide testing services or do-it-yourself test kits-residents can contact the program at 1-800-648-0394 or http://www.njradon.org. Test kits can also be obtained from many hardware stores and the Alexandria Township Municipal Offices.

If the test indicates a radon problem, radon mitigation systems can be installed at a cost similar to that of other home repairs. A list of certified mitigation companies is also available from the Radon Program.

For more information on Radon, contact Alexandria Township at (908) 996-7071 or the DEP Radon Program at (800) 648-0394 or visit http://www.njradon.org.
