Message from NMPD
The New Milford Police Department would like to remind residents to properly have their house numbers visible from the street in order for an efficient Police, Fire or EMS response.  Residences without proper house numbers visible from the street have the potential to be issued a Borough Ordinance Summons.  Any questions or concerns, contact P.O Michael Lafrano at the New Milford Police Department (201)-261-1400.
OVERNIGHT PARKING - Borough Ordinance Prohibiting Parking on the street is in effect.

CHRISTMAS TREE COLLECTION begins curbside on Wednesday, January 3rd.  Please remove ALL lights, ribbons, bows, garland and decorations before placing curbside. There is no scheduled collection day therefore no need to call the DPW.

WRAPPING PAPER NOT RECYCLABLE - Please put Holiday wrapping paper in regular trash and NOT in with your paper recycling.  The large amount of ink coverage on the majority of wrapping makes it undesirable as a recyclable item.
The Dynamic Compaction, taking place currently, is a construction process that the Developer is within their rights to undertake.  This is what is causing the vibrations you may be experiencing. The Borough Engineer has indicated that there is little likelihood of damage off site.  We would like to confirm that the Borough is taking all steps within its legal power to address the concerns of residents regarding this process.
