By Frank Sinatra, AAP Editor

There are many things referred to as the sounds of summer: laughing children playing in the park; the crack of the bat and cheering fans at hometown baseball games; and friendly and sometimes animated conversation around the barbeque. But there comes a point when something stops being music to the ears and turns into noise. To prevent the spread of noise pollution, Pennsauken Township has code in place that helps promote some well-deserved peace and quiet for residents.

Working To Keep Pennsauken Mosquito-Free

By Gary Burgin, Pennsauken Township Building Department

It’s that time of the year that everyone dreads: “mosquito season.” Mosquitoes are not only annoying, but can carry diseases such as West Nile and Zika viruses. Breeding grounds for mosquitoes are anywhere there are still waters. Common breeding areas include bird baths, old tires, or open containers such as cans, jars, and bottles that can hold as little as an ounce of water. Hollow trees, water gardens, ponds without fish, and other large bodies of standing water are culprits as well. Even wading pools and drainage ditches can be hosts for mosquito larva.

Whether it is maintaining our infrastructure and fire hydrants to support the fire department’s mission of providing fire suppression, or the fire department assisting in our confined space emergency drills, a level of mutual respect and admiration has existed between the two entities.

Keeping Dogs, Residents Safe In Pennsauken

The companionship and affection you get from “man’s best friend” is something pretty special. And with the warmer weather, there’s nothing dogs like to do more than to go outside and run around, play fetch, and defend their home from every squirrel in the neighborhood.

This time of year also brings some challenges for dog owners. As the temperature gauge rises, you hear more stories of dogs getting out of back yards or slipping past owners when the front door opens. You’ll also find a lot of flyers with lost dogs stapled to telephone polls around town. Some of these tales have happy endings. Others do not. From dog bites to hit and runs, these scenarios can lead to tragedy for both pet and owner.
