Operation Take Back Prescription Medication Day
The Lodi Police Department will be participating in “Operation Take Back,” which is a program to turn in any unwanted, unused or old prescription medication.
This service for old medication disposal will take place on Saturday, September 27, 2014, from the hours of 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in the front lobby of Lodi Borough Hall.
The medication must be in its original containers and any liquids should be sealed tightly to prevent leakage. We are not allowed to accept new or used syringes as part of this program.
Any questions should be directed to Lieutenant Robert Salerno of the Lodi Police Department at (973) 473-7600, Ext. 120 or via e-mail at email@example.com
New OnLine Form Available Designed To Report Abandoned or Unkept Property
The Mayor and Council want to keep our community looking the best it can, but they need the residents assistance to help to reach that goal. Remember, it's your neighborhood!
Have you noticed a house or building with overgrown grass and weeds or a pile of debris, or perhaps an abandoned or inoperable vehicle? Not sure how to report it? You may submit a complaint via our new online reporting form and even submit a photograph, if possible.
The borough has provided an efficient way for citizens to report those buildings and houses where owners need to be "reminded" that they must keep their property maintained and/or remove abandoned vehicles. It's just a click away...fill in the online form, attach the picture, and click send. That's all you have to do! You will receive an email acknowledgement that you submitted the information and the appropriate personnel will receive an email to let them know where the property is. Your information kept strictly confidential and will not be used or disclosed.
This form can be accessed via the online forms page or the image slider at the top of this page.
So let's all make sure that Lodi looks the best it can by using this easy reporting mechanism to alert the Borough about any property that needs attention.
Update on Emergency Notification System
The Borough of Lodi Office of Emergency Management has partnered with the County of Bergen to utilize an emergency notification system (Reverse 911) that allows them to quickly notify affected residents and businesses with important and vital information. While most residents are automatically in this data base, those who utilize cell phones as their primary phones, utilize internet based telephone systems, or "take" their telephone numbers when moving into or out of Lodi, may not receive these notifications. If you feel you are not receiving the notifications, please contact Sherri Ciarocco-Tosto of the Borough Manager’s office at (973) 859-7401 to add, remove or change your name and number on the list. Residents may also email these changes to firstname.lastname@example.org
