Mayor Bernstein's Weekly Address 6/12/2020

Good Evening Allendale,

I am Ari Bernstein, the mayor of Allendale.

Welcome to my weekly address to update the town on important updates regarding the Covid-19 pandemic.

This week, we have a lot of ground to cover and I encourage you to watch until the end.

As of the recording of this message, there have been a total of 68 presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 in Allendale. For all intents and purposes, this number has not changed since last week. Furthermore, I was informed on Wednesday that there are NO active cases at the Allendale Community for Senior Living. This is great news and largely due to your collective efforts.

This past week, as most of you know, Governor Murphy lifted the stay-at-home order. In connection with this Executive Order, outdoor gatherings of up to 100 people and indoor gatherings of up to 25% of the capacity or up to 50 people, whichever is fewer, is permissible.
The Governor has also announced upcoming changes to restrictions pertaining to businesses. Effective this upcoming Monday, outdoor dining at restaurants can begin. Additionally, non-essential in-person retail businesses can open at 50% capacity with social distancing and mask usage.

In Allendale, I have good news to bring you on many fronts -

Crestwood Lake will be opening on Saturday June 20th. Registration is still open and can be completed on the Borough Website. We look forward to a great summer ahead!

The tennis courts are currently open for the upcoming weekend for single play only. The basketball courts will be open on Monday.
I am also happy to announce that the Celery Farm will be reopening on Monday. A huge thank you to Mike Limatola and Jim Wright for their efforts to help maintain the Celery Farm and to make sure the preserve is ready for re-opening.

The Recycling Center has been re-opened along with the Compost Center located on W. Crescent Avenue. While you still need a valid 2020 permit for the Compost Center, the Recycling Center will be open to all residents. This weekend, the Centers will be open on Saturday 9 AM - 3 PM AND Sunday 9 AM - 1 PM. The Borough will be sending a Constant Contact email next week with the updated schedule.

For outdoor dining, I, along with the Borough Council, have been working with our local restaurants to help devise a plan for expanded outdoor seating. I encourage you to take advantage of these outdoor dining options and support our local restaurants.

Furthermore, there are plans to close our downtown area to vehicle traffic for 3 Saturday nights in Allendale. June 20th, June 27th, and July 11th. The plan is to close the downtown area to vehicular traffic from 4:30 pm to 10:30 pm. This will enable all of the restaurants to have outside dining throughout our community on those 3 nights. The Borough will be sending out more information regarding this in the upcoming days.

Thanks in part to your efforts, we have made it this far. However, make no mistake, this virus is still a threat and must still be taken seriously. I want to remind everyone and implore everyone that all social distancing guidelines are still in place and must be followed for the safety of everyone.

As we come to the end of this weekly address, I would like to advise you that this is intended to be my last video to the Borough regarding COVID-19. I hope that you have found these addresses helpful and informative as we navigated through this public health crisis together.
I would also like to thank the entire Office of Emergency Management team consisting of the OEM Director, Board of Health, Police Department, Fire Department, Ambulance Corps, and CERT. ​I would like to thank each of

these groups for their tireless efforts and countless hours as we worked together for the health and safety of the Borough.
In closing, and as we move forward, I am sure you, like myself, are looking to life returning to normal in the coming months where we can all enjoy our Allendale community.

As I stated in my first weekly address on March 20th, which feels like a lifetime ago, we are all in this together. I cannot overstate how amazing everyone has been throughout this unprecedented time.

Have a great weekend, thank you!

Orange & Rockland Seeks Public’s Help in Keeping a Social Distance;
Asks Customers to Secure Pets to Reduce Dog-Bite Risk to Workers

To maintain the safety and health of its customers and employees, Orange & Rockland (O&R) urges the public to please refrain from approaching our crews, work sites or trucks as O&R employees read meters in the community.

All O&R employees have been instructed to follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines to practice social distancing among themselves and between their crew members and the public. That becomes more difficult to do when approached by passersby who may not be as familiar with social distancing.

So, please respect social distancing and keep back from O&R work areas and remain at a safe distance from O&R workers.

In addition, O&R asks its customers who own dogs to keep their dogs on a leash, indoors or otherwise under secure control to avoid the possibility of O&R personnel being bitten while working on customer property.

O&R is well aware that its customers cherish their dogs. Every responsible dog owner knows that even the most even-tempered, gentle dog is capable of biting someone. These days when more family members are home during the day, it makes sense that dogs may feel more protective of their home turf than usual and become more agitated and aggressive when strangers appear outside the home.

That’s why, to help create the safest environment possible for both O&R employees and customers’ pets, O&R asks its customers to keep dogs on a leash, indoors or otherwise under secure control to avoid the possibility of conflict when O&R workers are present.

From the Allendale Holiday Observers Regarding The 2020 Independence Day Celebrations:

2020 Independence Day Celebration

With a prudent view regarding the health of our community, the Allendale Holiday Observers will be postponing our Fourth of July events with a tentative reschedule date of Saturday, September 12 (rain date: Sept. 13).

We regret the need to postpone this unique Allendale holiday tradition and it is a decision we do not make lightly. But it is our hope that we will have a full celebration on the rescheduled date, including but not limited to our traditional athletic events and food service during the day with music and fireworks in the evening. This decision was made with the complete support of the Mayor, the Police Department and all aspects of town management. We thank them for their continuous support of our efforts on behalf of the community.

While July 4, 2020 will not feature the usual slate of Holiday Observer events, we are confident that the town of Allendale will rise to the occasion yet again and find new ways to observe this important day in our nation’s history. We will certainly be ready to do our part.

Who are property tax checks made out to since I couldn't find anything on the town website? TIA
Will the borough be extending the deadline for Property tax payments, consistent with the Governor's latest executive order No. 130?
Since the compost location is closed which I understand why. What do we do with all the downed branches and brush and lawn related things that normally I would bring to the compost location? Also how do we renew our annual compost permit since the borough is closed? Thank you
Found this at Allendale train station. Would like to get it back to its owner.
Please do not chase or call out just report sightings . We could also use help hanging flyers around town today. If you are able to help please message me I volunteer for the rescue he was adopted from.
For your further information about instituting a white tail deer cull in Allendale. I received this information today from the NJ Sate Fish and Wildlife group. Start with https://www.njfishandwildlife.com/cbdmp.htm . If you have questions contact biologist Jodi Powers at 609-259-6965.

The Borough of Allendale MUST do something about the out of control deer population in town. We have lost close to $10,000 in landscaping at our home on Powell Road in just the past two years. And have any of you seen the devastation at the Celery Farm due to voracious deer? other towns have been proactive about the deer problem engaging bow hunters. I was raised in Pennsylvania farm country. Over population of deer is not only harmful to citizens but also to the deer. We regularly see 8-10 deer, full grown and young ones on our property, day or night. Our Ring security system recorded does and young fauns drinking from our fountain last night at 12:08 AM, and foraging what is left of our gardens. People have been injured, car accidents caused by deer in the roads. The borough NEEDS to address this problem ASAP.
PLEASE SHARE: Because talking to teens about difficult subjects sometimes requires skills some parents may not have, the USRA Coalition is sponsoring a multi-media presentation and question-and-answer session to help with the task.
