E-Newsletter – An Excellent Way To Be ‘In the Know’

The City of Wildwood would like to thank all of the subscribers to the e-newsletter for your interest in receiving it and hopes you find this weekly publication to be very informative and interesting.  It has been a major goal of the City to enhance citizen communications and input, and it hopes the e-newsletter has been an effective communication tool. However, the City is only reaching a small portion of the population and would like to reach many more of our citizens.  While not everyone wishes to receive yet another weekly e-mail, it is likely many citizens are unaware that the City’s weekly e-newsletter exists. Therefore, the City is asking for your assistance in sharing this opportunity to stay informed about Wildwood.  The following link will take you directly to the Subscription Section of the City Website: http://www.cityofwildwood.com/list.aspx. Through this link, you can subscribe to the weekly e-newsletter, as well as sign up for Traffic & Weather Alerts, News Flashes, and many other City notifications.
 
The City would also ask that you forward this notice to friends and family, or share through social media sites, and let’s see if we can grow our subscriber base and keep the citizens of our great community well-informed.

How to Keep Your Driveway Entrance
From Filling with Snow

Throughout the winter months, State, County, and City snowplow crews will be out clearing the highways, roads, and streets during and after each snowfall. Homeowners and other property owners will be clearing their driveways at the same time.

Many times, while this is going on, a snowplow truck will go by and fill in the end of a freshly cleared private driveway with snow from the roadway. This is not intentional, and there is a way this wintertime inconvenience can be minimized.

The diagram below shows how you can clear snow around the end of your driveway, opening a certain way to reduce the possibility that you will have to do very much re-clearing after a snowplow truck goes by on the road next to your driveway.

The idea is to place as much snow as possible when clearing your driveway in the direction of travel downstream on your side of the roadway. Next is to clear an area upstream from your driveway opening to form a "pocket" for the snow from the roadway to go into instead of at the end of your driveway.

The result is more of the snow accumulation from clearing the roadway will go into this open pocket area and less will wind up at the end of your driveway.

A note of caution is in order. Please be extremely careful when working next to the roadway—especially when snowplowing operations are in progress.

Holiday Light Recycling

The City of Wildwood is pleased to once again partner with Meridian Waste Services’ Holiday Light Recycling Program. No longer wanted strands of holiday lights may be placed in the dumpster supplied for this specific purpose at the end of Wildwood Avenue, which is located just to the east of the Wildwood Municipal Building. Please do not place light strands in your regular trash, as they become tangled in the equipment at the landfills. Please do not place them in the curbside recycling containers, since they will not be accepted in the weekly pickup.  Please help keep the City of Wildwood the eco-friendly community we are known to be by placing those unwanted light strands in the appropriate dumpster on Wildwood Avenue.
