Township hosts annual rabies vaccine clinic tomorrow afternoonRabies clinic.jpg
Cherry Hill Township will host its annual rabies vaccine clinic from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Carman Tilelli Community Center. This free clinic is open to all cats and dogs over three months of age. Pet owners must show a current and valid pet license, or apply for their 2014 license prior to receiving the vaccine. New Jersey law requires that pets be licensed and inoculated against rabies. For 2014, license fees are $25.20 for non-neutered animals, and $22.20 for neutered animals. A $25 late fee will be assessed for dog licenses obtained after Jan. 31. Click here to download a pet license application. For more information, please call the Municipal Clerk’s Office at (856) 488-7892.

Recycling to be collected Saturday morning in some neighborhoods
On the heels of Tuesday’s snow storm, recycling and yard-waste collection are operating one day behind schedule. Crews are scheduled to work Saturday morning to complete all of this week’s pick-ups. Trash collection remains on track, with all of this week’s routes expected to be finished by the end of the day today. Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as we get back to normal following the inclement weather. For more information or questions about your trash, recycling or yard-waste collection, contact the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422, or through our website by clicking here.

NJ American Water to continue work next week in Woodcrest
As part of an ongoing water main replacement project, New Jersey American Water will be continuing work next week on Fireside Lane from Heartwood to Country Club Drive, including East and West Fireside Court and Fireside Circle. Service interruptions are not expected. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this project. If you have any questions or concerns, contact NJAW representatives John Graham at (856) 764-6920 or Jacquelyn Weaver at (856) 764-6915.

Report potholes to the Department of Public Works  
The continuous freezing/thawing cycle of winter can wreak havoc on road surfaces, and inevitably leads to a spike in potholes popping up across town. The Department of Public Works is responsible for the repair and maintenance of nearly 260 miles of municipal roads, and has dedicated crews assigned to the task of filling these potholes as quickly as possible. But with such a vast amount of space to cover, these crews rely heavily on feedback from the community. If you spot a pothole, report it to our offices as soon as possible. Report an area of concern online by clicking here, or call Public Works directly, Monday through Friday, at (856) 424-4422. Please be sure as specific a location as possible, and if you are submitting online, feel free to include a photo. Remember that some roads in Cherry Hill are maintained by Camden County and the New Jersey Department of Transportation. Click here for a list of roads and contact information for other entities. Drive safely!

Community celebrates life, legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.MLK1.jpg
Last Sunday, I was honored to attend a very special ceremony honoring the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Nearly 100 community members from across Cherry Hill came together at Holy Eucharist Church to honor the civil rights leader with inspirational remarks and musical selections that recalled his mission and spirit, and paid tribute to the progress our nation has made in the years since Dr. King was slain. Council members Susan Shin Angulo and Carole Roskoph were among the dozens of attendees. On behalf of everyone in Cherry Hill, I’d like to thank Rev. Seiter and Holy Eucharist for hosting the event; Jim Peeler for his vision in planning the ceremony; and the Knights of Columbus and African-American Civic Association for their support of the event.

Beck student's anti-bullying video nominated in statewide contest

Weather postpones CHFD smoke alarm program for Jan. 25-26
Due to inclement weather in the forecast, the Cherry Hill Fire Department has postponed its smoke alarm campaign for this weekend. The program is expected to resume on Saturday, Feb. 1. Over the night several weeks, firefighters will be going door-to-door in several neighborhoods offering free smoke alarm testing and installation as part of the 2014 Smoke Alarm Campaign.  Firefighters will be in different neighborhoods every weekend.

Honoring Cherry Hill's longest-standing businesses: Cherry Hill VolvoCH Volvo.jpg
David Krupnick opened Cherry Hill Volvo on Route 70 in 1962, as the first new import automotive store in Camden County. The car dealership, which moved to its current location in 1967, is operated today by Krupnick’s daughter, Judith. Each of the businesses we've highlighted in the past few weeks has become a living piece of Cherry Hill’s history, and I’m honored to be able to recognize their longstanding investment and presence in our community.  Each of the businesses we've highlighted in the past few weeks has become a living piece of Cherry Hill’s history, and I’m honored to be able to recognize their longstanding investment and presence in our community.
