Shade Tree Commission Review on June 3, 2020 Storm

On June 3, Haddonfield experienced 2 storms that took down many trees, both public and privately owned, created significant damage throughout town, and left over one-third of our residents without power.  While our Department of Public Works (DPW) continues the cleanup from these and other storms, here is a summary of what happened that day, what the Borough is doing to mitigate the future impact of similar events, and actions you, too, can take regarding your private property.

The 2 storms that day were significant wind events.  Twenty-four Borough-owned street trees fell due to unusually strong wind gusts, including 3 trees brought down when larger trees fell against them.  Another 4 trees were subsequently taken down as DPW inspections indicated that they were starting to uproot.  Five to ten more street trees will be taken down over the next months, as DPW inspections showed that they will not survive the extensive storm damage to their canopy, trunk or root structure.  This does not include the additional trees that toppled in our public park spaces.  Finally, although the Borough does not track trees growing on private property, we know that many privately-owned trees came down in the storm or are being removed due to damage.

Weather reports classified these storms as “derecho,” an unusual, long-lived, straight-line wind storm associated with fast-moving severe thunderstorms.  Furthermore, this spring alone, there have been at least 2 other damaging storms: the first, in April, brought down more than 15 public and privately-owned trees in the Tavistock, Greenmount and Concord Drive area; and another this past weekend when 3 street trees fell, at least 3 private trees came down onto our streets and utility wires, and countless branches lay scattered on the roads.

What is going on?  These recent storms have brought down many younger, healthy trees.  When a tree is in full leaf, its canopy acts as a sail, resisting unusually strong, continuous straight-line wind gusts until it can no longer.  Then, limbs break or trees go over.  Like hurricanes, other storms that move up our coast from the south, pose further challenges.  The trees have grown to resist the usual prevailing winds from the west but coastal storms push and twist the trees in new directions.  The June 3 storms brought down one of our oldest trees, the Black oak growing on the water plant property on Lake Street, and one of our youngest, the 2017 Arbor Day Honey locust tree growing by the Central School playground.  The Black oak was felled by the strong winds; the Honey locust was simply blown in half.

Residents need to evaluate and manage the trees on their own property.  Learn to identify your trees, particularly the oaks and ash, so that you can monitor their condition.  If you hire an arborist to advise you, make sure that the arborist is either ISA-certified or is a NJ-licensed LTE (Licensed Tree Expert).  While you will need an arborist if you decide to lighten the canopy of a large tree, you can also help by removing any evergreen English ivy growing up its trunk and into its canopy.  Non-native English ivy weakens and kills trees by preventing sunlight from reaching the tree’s leaves, weighing down branches in wind or ice storms, and encasing the trunk so that the tree bark begins to rot.  Finally, if you are taking down a tree, please look at the Recommended Tree Planting Species List on the STC webpage for suggestions of small, medium and taller hardy native trees to support our birds and native wildlife, help us shade and cool our air and enhance the economic value of our properties.  The Tree Care section of the Haddonfield Shade Tree Commission webpage on the Borough website will have more information within the week on tree identification, ivy removal, pruning mature trees and recommended trees to plant.

The Borough is working to address this new climate-based challenge to our trees.  Currently, the Borough removes on a planned basis 150 to 200 trees annually, relying on DPW inspections, observation and our street tree inventory.  Tree removals are now the primary job of our Borough tree crew, supplemented by contractors for the largest trees.  Ten years ago, we began removing our pin oaks and red oaks as they started to succumb to bacterial leaf scorch.  Several years ago, we started to lose our white ash and green ash to disease and then the ‘exotic’ emerald ash borer insect.  With the help of our trained, volunteer Haddonfield Branch Managers, we have twice evaluated the condition of the ash tree population, using this information to guide our tree removal priorities.  We know that our Sugar maples, a more northern native species, are failing rapidly due to our warmer climate.  Silver maples and Norway maples, popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s as fast-growing replacements for the American elms lost to ‘exotic’ Dutch elm disease, are relatively short-lived species that are being taken down now.

Five years ago, the Borough changed its species and planting policies.  We select species that can grow in our warming climate and are not vulnerable to the wide list of current diseases and pests; we have not planted pin oak, red oak and ash for more than a decade.  Trees are selected to better fit the planting space, with species that fit in narrower sites and under the overhead electric wires common in Haddonfield.  We no longer plant by driveways, close to underground utilities or within corner sightlines.  Finally, just as we are planting a wider variety of trees, we are also planting no more than 80 trees annually to spread out our future risk.

Our goal is to ensure Haddonfield’s streets remain tree-lined and safe.  The Borough and the Haddonfield Shade Tree Commission know that we must continue to increase our preparedness for the challenges ahead.

Property Taxes Due May 1, 2020 

The 2nd quarter 2020 tax payment is due on May 1, 2020 with a 10-day grace period. Please note that we do not accept post marked envelopes or post dated checks. At the April 14, 2020 Commissioner Meeting a Resolution was passed authorizing the rate of interest for non-payment of May 1, 2020 taxes to be 0% if paid between May 1, 2020 and May 31, 2020.  This applies only to property taxes that are current on all billing.  Property taxes that are not paid by May 31, 2020 will be subject to interest at the rate of 8% per annum up to $1,500 and 18% per annum over $1,500 to be calculated from the due date until the date of actual payment.  Please note that all delinquent taxes as of May 1, 2020 will continue to be charged for non-payment of taxes at the current interest rates. You can still pay your property taxes at Borough Hall – there is a black mailbox at the front of the building that is strictly for dropping off items for our departments.  You may put your bill & check in an envelope marked for the “Tax Office” in that black box as we check the box daily.  If you enclosed your entire tax bill, it will be stamped “Paid” and mailed back to you.

Beware of Scammers - Public Service Announcement

The largest utility in the Garden state, Public Service Electric and Gas, is urging customers to be on the lookout for phony PSE&G workers who may call you on the phone or show up at your front door.

“People should be cautious of callers who demand immediate payment with a prepaid card,” said PSE&G spokesperson Brooke Houston. “The phone scammers really use scare tactics. They threaten immediate service termination if they don’t receive immediate payment with a pre-paid credit card.”

She points out “PSE&G offers a number of payment options and would never require a customer to use one specific type of payment.”

Houston adds another scheme involves thieves showing up on your front steps.

“Door-to-door scammers trick people by showing up at someone’s home dressed like a utility worker and saying that they need to come inside to quote-unquote 'check a problem,'” she said. “And often after they gain access to the home they take money or items.”

“Customers should always ask for ID if a utility worker comes to their door,” Houston said. “And we urge customers to call the number listed on their bill, which is 1-800-436-7734.” Or better yet, inform the person/people at your door that you need to call the local police department first to request an officer to assist with the problem.  Then call “911” immediately.

The bottom line, she says, is always use common sense and good judgment. “Please be cautious when making payments,” Houston said. “Even one customer being cheated is one too many.” She also recommends contacting local police immediately to report suspicious activity or an attempted scam.

Flags to half-staff in honor of Mary Previte 

Haddonfield Mayor Neal Rochford has ordered all Haddonfield Borough flags to half-staff in honor and remembrance of Mary Previte whom we lost over the weekend. Ms. Previte was a former New Jersey assemblywoman, a published author, a driving force behind the Crow’s Woods Gardens, and a familiar and welcome face all over Haddonfield. Ms. Previte touched so many lives in a positive and enriching manner; from her time as a high school English teacher, a public speaker of her experiences in a Japanese concentration camp during WWII, and administrator of the Camden County Youth Center for over 20 years, to organizing the games at the Roberts Ave July 4th celebrations. Haddonfield will greatly miss her, and we at Borough Hall wish to express our sincere condolences to Mary’s family.

Rochford, Kasko to Appoint Robert Marshall to Vacant Commissioner Seat

Mayor Neal Rochford and Commissioner Jeffrey S. Kasko have announced their intention to name Robert Marshall to the seat being vacated by John Moscatelli on the borough's Board of Commissioners.  A special meeting of the Board of Commissioners has been called for 7:00 pm Tuesday, July 2, 2019 to formally approve the appointment.  Moscatelli submitted his resignation at last Tuesday's Board meeting.

 

"After a process involving 24 applicants for this vacancy, we have agreed on Bob Marshall, who brings a wealth of experience in government and community volunteering," stated Rochford.  We had so many strong candidates to choose from, so this was not an easy decision.  I am confident that Bob's background, skills, and expertise will serve him and the residents of Haddonfield well as a commissioner."

"Bob Marshall is known by many residents in Haddonfield," added Kasko.  "Bob has outstanding leadership, organizational, and analytical abilities, and he works collaboratively with others, which is important on a three-member governing body.  I want to thank all the applicants for the vacant commissioner seat and welcome Bob as Haddonfield's newest commissioner."

During his tenure with the State of New Jersey Bob has served four governors in the Office of Counsel to the Governor, provided special assistance in various capacity to NJDEP including Special Advisor to the Commissioner of Energy and the Environment, Assistant Commissioner for Sustainability and Green Energy, Special Assistant for Natural Resources Policy and Planning, and at one point Supervising Planner in the Office of Pineland Acquisitions.  Since becoming a resident of Haddonfield in 1986 Bob also involved himself in many civic and club organizations in town.  Some highlights include serving on the Board of Governors of the Civic Association, President of the Board of Trustees for the Haddonfield Public Library, and President of the Haddonfield Historical Society.  Bob was named Haddonfield’s Citizen of the Year in 2007.  Posted June 28, 2019

At their March 12, 2019 meeting the Board of Commissioners tabled the second reading of Ordinance 2019-02, which was for the “Application for a Long Term Tax Exemption & Authorizing the Execution of a Financial Agreement with 2 Hopkins Lane Urban Renewal, LLC”; the PILOT program for the Bancroft site, to a specific date and time.

Because the legal notice, required by State Statute N.J.S.A. 40:49-2(b and c), stated that the Public Hearing on this ordinance would be continued at the April 30, 2019 Commissioner Meeting, we must by law include this item on our agenda.

Subsequent to the March 12, 2019 Commissioner Meeting, the Board of Commissioners have begun discussions with the Board of Education regarding the taxes that will be collected for this property once the construction has been completed.  It is the intention of the Board of Commissioners to not act on this ordinance, but rather announce the abandonment of the document once the required Public Hearing has been opened.

Spring Cleanup Information

Spring Clean-up: Begins April 1 through 26, 2019! On trash day for these 4 weeks in April, the 6 piece per week trash restriction is relaxed allowing residents to clean out basements, garages, etc. Rules for proper trash placement must be followed. Also, the leaf trucks will collect leaves placed loose at the curb during the 2nd and 4th weeks. Remember – do not place the leaves in the street! Place your raked piles on the park strip.

Chipper will collect limbs placed loose at the curb the 1st and 3rd weeks of April. Remember – limbs can only be a maximum diameter of 6 inches but it’s not necessary to cut limbs into small pieces; longer limbs allow for faster chipping. If removing entire shrubs, they can only be chipped only if the root is cut from the bush. Roots should have dirt removed and then placed in cans or paper bags and weighing less than 50 pounds for collection by the Veg Truck.

Vegetative Waste: Beginning April 1, the Veg Truck will resume weekly collection. This truck will run weekly into October.

W Park Ave Pole Replacement - Resident Letter

Letter from Commissioner Moscatelli to Residents

Dear Residents,
During the last Commissioner’s Meeting on February 26 a settlement agreement for a lawsuit with Fair Share Housing was introduced.  After the Mayor’s remarks I spoke at length regarding affordable housing in an attempt to calm fears.

During my years as Commissioner, I have heard from many residents that are genuinely frightened of affordable housing, firmly believing it will bring all manner of economic and societal ills to town, and feel the Borough should fight it at all costs.  The point I was attempting to make with my remarks is that affordable housing is not that; it largely goes to folks like police officers, fire fighters, teachers, and others that simply don't make enough to buy into the very expensive housing in a town like ours.  Affordable Housing is an opportunity to bring some much needed economic and social diversity to Haddonfield.  Residents should not be scared of it.

I believe, and hope, those that heard the entirety of my comments understood the point I was trying to make.  The quote the Courier Post chose to run was unfortunate.  They chose to take one portion of my statement so out of context it completely changed the meaning of my remarks.

If anyone was offended by my remarks, taken from the quote in the paper, or otherwise, I apologize, and I hope this statement clarifies my position.

Very truly yours,
John Moscatelli
Commissioner of Public Works and Recreation
