Holiday Precautions

Please remember that this is the season which historically sees an increase in local car and home invasions. The  Bloomfield Township Police Department reminds us that it is always prudent, but especially now, to empty our cars of valuables and lock them, preferably in our garages. Always keep your garage doors closed.

Also, remember to set home security systems when at home or away. And, if you are expecting packages from USPS, UPS or FedEx – don’t let them sit on the porch!

Road Resurfacing Meeting Wrap Up

We had a great meeting last night regarding a Special Assessment District to finance road resurfacing throughout most of Westchester Village. It was well attended, and the Board would like to thank all of you who showed up! For those who couldn’t make it, here are the Meeting Minutes.

With us at the meeting were representatives from Bloomfield Township. They helped to explain the process for financing road resurfacing through the Township. (Thanks again, Leo and crew…) We had hoped to have someone from the County as well, but he was a late scratch. Still, it seemed to be full of great questions and answers. Residents shared their knowledge and concerns.

The Township had a couple handouts for us. The first shows the steps for Creating an SAD and includes the estimated costs for our specific SAD. The second includes Frequently Asked Questions that others have asked about these types of projects. We should all become familiar with both. An unofficial show of hands was overwhelmingly in favor of accepting the Township’s offer in terms of financing the project. But, there is still much more to do.

A Road Resurfacing Committee has been organized to begin the task of determining the petition, and then gathering the signatures of those in favor. More information will follow as it becomes available.
