Welcome to the Borough of Midland Park!
Originally settled by the Dutch, Midland Park was incorporated as a Borough on September 6, 1894 from portions of Ridgewood Township and Franklin Township (now Wyckoff Township) and further expanded from additional lands acquired from Wyckoff Township in 1931. Midland Park was named after the New Jersey Midland Railway Company which operated a railroad through the area in the 1870s. With a total area of 1.56 square miles and a population of 7,128 (as of the 2010 census) it borders the Borough of Waldwick to the north, the Village of Ridgewood to the east and the Township of Wyckoff to the west. Midland Park treasures it's "small-town" feel yet offers a multitude of housing options, recreational facilities, quality public and private schools, unique shopping and dining options, nine houses of worship, and public transportation into nearby Manhattan making it a desirable town to call your own.

Revised Fall Leaf Collection
The annual curbside leaf collection will begin October 17th in Leaf District 4. Each district will be collected three times. It is important to have your leaves out at the curb or edge of roadway the day before collection begins in your district to insure your leaves are picked up. Each home will be picked up once per date, once the street is completed for that date the Public Works will not return until the next date. If the leaves are not out by the dates listed below, it will be your responsibility to have the leaves removed. Do not put leaves out any earlier then 7 days prior to schedule date. Collection schedules and district identifications are listed in the Annual Service Almanac, which was mailed to each home last December. Additional copies are available at the Borough Hall and on the Borough website.

These are the dates to have your leaves at the edge of the curb for your scheduled pick up. (Collection begins the next day) Please be aware that inclement weather or a low volume of leaves may alter the schedule.

Zone 4 - 10/16 , 10/31, 11/29
Zone 5 - 10/18, 11/2, 12/4
Zone 1 - 10/20, 11/7, 12/7
Zone 2 - 10/24, 11/10, 12/12
Zone 3 - 10/26, 11/15, 12/15

A Few Safety Precautions:

Leaves should be raked to the edge of the road, not into the lane of traffic.
Do not allow children to play in the leaves.
Safety concerns regarding leaf collection should be reported to the Midland Park Police Department at 201-444-2300.
Keep vehicles off the street on days scheduled for leaf collection in your district.
Do not park on leaves.
Keep laves at least 10 feet away from storm water catch basins as per state storm water regulations.
Leaves at the curb must be either loose or in paper bags.
Leaves and other vegetative matter may be brought to the Recycling Center on Greenwood Avenue on Tuesdays 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Wednesdays 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Thursdays 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Center is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Dairy Street Recreation Fields Update
To Our Residents,
We would like to take this opportunity to update you on the status of the upgrades at the Johnny VanderMeer field on Dairy Street since our last communication in mid-August.

As outlined in our town-wide email dated August 16, in keeping with our commitment to providing high-quality, safe, and aesthetically pleasing recreation facilities, the Mayor and Council, under the leadership of recreation liaison, Councilman Mark Braunius, approved a new project specific to the Johnny VanderMeer field. The upgrades include new lighting, a new grass field, foul poles, and dugouts.

Unfortunately, the project was not moving forward in the way we anticipated and a stop order was placed on the job, which has ultimately caused a delay.

Please know we have been working diligently to rectify the situation so our promise of providing a high-quality, safe, and aesthetically pleasing recreation facility will be realized.

That being said, this past week, the borough was given the green light to move forward with the field completion, which includes the placing of the sod and the clay. The work will begin this week.

As we said before, while this is not what we had hoped for, we will never compromise public safety over construction deadlines. In the end, the decision was the right one and we appreciate everyone's patience as we work toward the completion of the project. It will be completed within its original budget, which comes with no cost to our residents.

Thank you to the Board of Education, the Midland Park Junior Football and Cheerleading Association, and most importantly, members of the community for working hand-in-hand with us through this transition.

As the project moves forward, we will keep you informed and updated. If you have any specific questions and/or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly and again, thank you for your understanding and patience.

Mayor Harry Shortway, Jr.
Councilman Mark Braunius
Councilwoman Lorraine DeLuca

Summer Water Restrictions

Zika Virus
Zika is a viral infection that is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Locally transmitted cases of Zika have not been identified in the US, although the potential for local transmission exists as the Aedes mosquitoes are present in many states.

The Board of Health strongly encourages protection for yourself, your family, and our community from mosquito bites:

- Eliminate standing water in and around your home. Be sure to empty and scrub birdbaths frequently. Turn over, cover or throw out items that hold water (tires, buckets, planters, toys, flowerpots)

- Tightly cover storage containers (buckets, cisterns, rain barrels) to avoid entry of mosquitoes. For containers without lids, cover with wire mesh with holes smaller than an adult mosquito.

- Keep mosquitoes out of your home by using screens on windows and doors, repair holes in screens, use air conditioning when available.

- Prevent mosquito bites by using an EPA-registered insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin or IR3535, always using as directed.

- Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants. Consider using permethrin-treated clothing and gear.
