Department of Public Works Hires New Employees

dpw_headquarters_tlsThe Department of Public Works has hired six new employees, Liaison to DPW Township Committeeman Ray Coles confirms to TLS.

The new employees, who will work in the recycling department, parks department and eventually in plowing as well, replace the recent retirements, terminations and unfortunately two who passed away, says Coles.

The employees will be required to obtain a CDL as well in the near future, which will enable them to drive snow plows.

The starting salary for the employees is the mid to high twenty-thousand dollar range, says Coles. The moneys were budgeted in the Municipal budget. [TLS]

  1. I don’t understand the twp leaf pickup program there are leaves for months on the side of roads clogging up parking spaces
    why not just save some money and have people bag their own leaves

  2. Do we need a crew of ten to pick up leaves with tractors which are sitting on the roadside for weeks, creating very dangerous conditions for both motorists and pedestrians. The sidewalks are blocked forcing pedestrians onto the roadways. If residents were to bag their leaves it would be safer and would save the taxpayers money too.

  3. They used to do that. We had to bag our leaves. Then they would come, rip open the bags, throw the leaves in a truck and leave the bags on the floor!! They used to come more often. This year, it seems they came once within the 2 week schedule. This means, if you missed it, your leaves could sit on the street for 3-4 weeks until the next pickup. (Of course, by that time, most of the leaves blew back and you start all over again.) Besides, do you have any idea how fast it takes to fill up a garbage bag of leaves? You must not have too many leaves to suggest it.

  4. Have you tried to bag leaves and have between 10 and 100 bags of leaves sitting in front of your house for weeks I have a large yard and bagging leaves for a couple days is rediculous and then having to have a crew of 3 pick them up at a rate of a neighborhood a day. This works..If you want to bag your leaves do it..but they will still be picked up the same way..and at the same time.

  5. To #1 & #2— Apparently you both live in apartment buildings where the landlords take care of the grounds. You do not know how hard it is to bag leaves. Also, bags aren’t cheap and they would have to be removed from the leaves before dumping as the bags are not biodegradable.

  6. They need to give us another can (maybe a brown can) for just the leaves and other organic Materials. That way they only need the truck with the arm to pick up the leaves. It will solve so many issues and save $

  7. Is it me or do all these comments have nothing to do with the article. Cmon tls show some discretion when letting these comments through! Its actually very interesting how my insightful & relevant comments get denied while these totally irrelevant comments go through.

  8. To #7: I could use 20 or more cans, that is a rediculous idea..another can, really? and then people will complain about 1) where to put the can when not in use & 2) where to park when they are all lined up on the street. S.R.

  9. Let’s see…10 huh? That works out to 2 working, 3 standing around watching the 2 workers,1going for coffee, 2 sitting in the truck and 2 supervisors talking to each other on walky talkies though they’re only 5 feet apart.
    This is based on my years of observations while walking around Lakewood
