Barrington’s Scenes of the Seasons...
Rain Showers Fail To Dampen Spirits At Harvest Festival
Although rain showers were threatening on the Saturday morning of October 8th, the forecast for Sunday was no better. The Harvest Festival Committee of the Barrington Civic Association made the decision to go ahead. Ron Oppperman of Tek-Cad posted an optimistic video showing the vendors and exhibitors setting up, and soon the Annual Harvest Festival took over Clements Bridge Road for the 19th time. As thousands of attendees from all over the area gathered to enjoy the cool morning air, they found the street fair included all the traditions that have made this event such an incredible favorite for everyone. The live entertainment spread throughout the Festival, while cut somewhat short by rain showers, was enjoyed by all. Local rock groups performed in front of the Old Rail Tavern, and the main stage in front of the B-Corner Market featured a variety of talented performers. There was entertainment for the younger set, too, including Colette’s Animal Show, Petting Zoo, and pony rides. There were blocks and blocks of arts and crafts, gifts, food, and socializing.

Santa Comes To Town With His Traditional Fire Truck Parade
Just after dark on Black Friday, everybody bundled up the kids, grabbed a blanket, and headed for their favorite parade-watching spot. It all started about 6:30 pm. That’s when Santa switched on the tree lights in front of Borough Hall and Barrington began celebrating the Holiday Season. At 7pm, fire companies from all over the area with emergency vehicles decorated with thousands of lights paraded down Clements Bridge Road with horns and sirens blaring. They followed the traditional holiday parade route down Clements Bridge Road and Gloucester Pike to Reading Avenue, and back to the firehouse. The parade included the Haddon Heights Marching Band, and the glow of the holiday lights was inspiring. Back at the firehouse, the Jolly Old Elf arrived on a fire truck and everyone enjoyed hot chocolate and cookies compliments of Santa and Barrington Fire Company #1. A perfect start to the Holiday Season!

BARRINGTON’S ON TRACK
On March 27, 2017, Barrington will celebrate its 100th birthday as it is the anniversary of when the town was incorporated as a municipality. To mark this historic event, we have many events planned and one special project—the construction of Centennial Park which will be located at Clements Bridge Road and Trenton Avenue, across from Borough Hall. Centennial Park will feature a beautiful town clock, benches, engraved pavers and a floral garden. There are several ways you can get involved. We will be selling engraved pavers, boulevard banners and sponsorships for both the clock and the benches. The sponsorships for the clock and the benches have not been finalized yet but orders for engraved pavers and boulevard banners are currently being sold and can be personalized with your family or business name. Below is a rough idea of what the clock will look like and also information on the pavers and banners. ENGRAVED PAVERS—for a contribution of $100, you can purchase an engraved paver which will be located in one section of Centennial Park. It is a 4x8 EP Henry paver and can be personalized with three lines of type, 15 characters per line (including spaces). You can inscribe your family name, a business name, in memory of someone, or anything else you would like. These pavers have an epoxy fill and last indefinitely. They would make great Christmas gifts! For more information or an order form, visit our website at www.barringtonboro.com or stop in at Borough Hall.
BOULEVARD BANNERS—for a contribution of $100, you can purchase a boulevard banner that will be hung on Clements Bridge Road at various times throughout the year. The banner can be personalized with your family name, business name or in memory of someone. At the end of 2017, the banners will be given to the purchaser. For more information or an order form, visit our website at www.barringtonboro.com or stop in at Borough Hall.

Brush – Is a year round pick up performed on Monday’s. Tree limbs and trimmings, brush with roots removed and stumps no larger than twelve inches in diameter with all dirt washed off. Stumps in excess of twelve inches in diameter must arrange for a special pick up which is performed on Thursdays by calling the DPW prior to Thursday to be put on a pick up list. Any tree removals performed by a contractor and/or homeowner is the responsibility of the contractor and/or homeowner to arrange for disposal of all resulting debris. The DPW will not pick up any debris resulting from tree removals. Scrap Metal – Over the past few years the Borough has seen a slight improvement in our recycling rate for scrap metal though it has varied very little. In an effort to curb scavengers residents are asked to wait until the morning of pickup to put your items to the curb, you can also bring your scrap metal items to the DPW yard Monday thru Friday during normal business hours, 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., for disposal in our scrap metal dumpster or if you can contact the DPW ahead of time we
may be able to make arrangements for pick up prior to your regularly scheduled pick up date if our schedule and manpower allows. By increasing our scrap metal recycling rate the Borough will receive increased revenue shares, increase our overall recycling rate which will increase our recycling grant funding because it is based on how much you recycle and help in achieving the State goal of recycling 50% of our solid waste stream Statewide. In 2015 the Borough residential recycling rate was 56.46%. Electronics Recycling: Residents can bring their E-Waste to the DPW yard for disposal.

BARRINGTON T-N-R PROGRAM PREPARES FOR WINTER AHEAD
As winter and the holidays rapidly approach the members of Barrington TNR have been hard at work preparing our feral colonies for the cold weather! Building more shelters and replenishing the straw insulation. Barrington TNR has recently discovered another colony in town and has been actively trapping to spay/neuter and vaccinate the cats there. New shelters have been placed there and a feeding schedule established. Food donations are always welcomed as the cold winter weather brings with it the need to increase the amount of food for the cats in an effort to assist them in providing energy to keep warm in the frigid temperatures. Wet and dry food donations may be dropped off at the Borough Municipal Building. The Barrington T-N-R Program (Trap-Neuter-Return) has now neuter/spayed over 200 feral cats in our community and has been successful in getting many stray and abandoned friendly cats adopted. Our feral colonies are growing and volunteers work daily to feed them and provide medical treatment when needed. With winter coming, we are in dire need of donations to be able to keep the colonies fed over the winter months. We need both dry and wet food, and donation bins are at Borough Hall. We also accept monetary donations which we use to purchase food and for medical treatment. Town-Wide Yard Sale Raises Funds
We want to thank all the residents who participated in the Town-Wide Yard Sale on October 15th. Many residents participated, and their $10 permit fees raised $670 for the T-N-R program, which will go towards spaying and neutering. We cannot thank the community enough for all your support. We are always looking for new members. If you would like to help out in any way, please visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/barringtontnr or email tshannon@barringtonboro. com. As Always, Barrington TNR deeply appreciates the support of our residents for our TNR program and we would like to extend our very best wishes to all our residents for a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season!

Giving Tree There will also be a Giving Tree at Borough Hall again this year. Stop by and pick up a gift tag from the tree that will specify the age and gender of a person in need. When you shop for a gift, wrap it, and attach the tag to it, and return it to Borough Hall. The A.B.L.E. Group will see that it gets to a deserving recipient by Christmas morning. Sponsors Sought For Needy For many years, Mayor Klaus has organized the town’s Care & Share Program benefiting deserving families in Barrington and
at the Osbourne Clinic at Lourdes Hospital in Camden. Businesses, organizations, and families volunteer to sponsor an entire family for the holidays. They receive the wish lists of everyone in the family –with first names, genders, and sizes only– and then go shopping. The gifts are returned to the Mayor’s Office by December 16th, and are delivered the week before Christmas. It’s guaranteed to give you a feelgood Holiday spirit! Candy Cane Day Later this month, Santa’s Helpers will get dressed up as Barrington Firefighters and go around the town giving out their traditional candy canes. (Of course, only good children will receive one. Santa’s watching!) Parking On Page 11, you will find an update of the Barrington Business Association’s Parking Map for Downtown Barrington. The Association hopes that you will keep it for reference, and
consider Barrington businesses when you do your Holiday Shopping. The Borough has provided free parking to attract holiday shoppers. We may not have a major department store, but our local shops offer unusual alternatives like antiques, movie posters, tools, lottery tickets, toiletries, and take-out food. Gift Certificates Don’t overlook Barrington shops for out-ofthe-ordinary gift certificates for those hard-to-please folks on your list. You just choose the dollar amount, and give them anything from bakery treats to a breakfast out, to a tank of gasoline. And who doesn’t love pizza? Have a Happy and Safe Holiday Your Borough officials join in wishing you all the best for the Holidays, and the Police Department, Ambulance Squad and Fire Company remind you to make safety an important gift to your family!

A.B.L.E. Group Grateful to Boy Scouts Once Again As in past years, Boy Scout Troop #96 rolled up its sleeves to do a Good Turn for the annual Scouting For Food Drive on Saturday, November 19th. The boys and their adult leaders went around town and picked up the filled food donation bags they had dropped off at Barrington homes the previous week. The result was several carloads of canned goods and non-perishable food items, that were then sorted and stored by the scouts and their leaders along with A.B.L.E. volunteers. The food will be distributed to local needy families during the winter to make sure that everyone has enough to eat. The volunteers represent several area churches and civic organizations. Their theme of “Awareness, Benevolence, Liberation and Education” has inspired the generosity of Barrington’s citizens for several years now.

Ask The Inspector “I have been told that if I am replacing ‘in kind’ that there is no need to secure building permits. Is this true?” In most cases the answer is “NO”. There are some items that do not require permits. They would include replacement windows, or kitchen cabinets like for like, with no change in configuration. Most replacement items require permits. This includes roofing, siding, water heaters, heating and air conditioning equipment, and even drywall replacement. “I want to replace my driveway and widen it for my son who now has his own vehicle. What do I need in the way of permits?”
Any and all impervious coverage in the Borough of Barrington requires a municipal permit, even replacement “in kind”. This includes concrete, asphalt, and pavers. The permit application needs to be accompanied by a copy of your survey showing the replacement to be done. Because this inquiry includes additional lot coverage to expand the driveway “zoning approval” is required as well. This article will appear regularly in issues of “Barrington On Track”. If you have a permitting question you can submit it to the Borough website for possible publication, or at the very least, a personal response to keep you on track in Barrington. For immediate response, you can always call the Construction Office at 856-5470706 Extension 203.

Renew Pet Licenses For 2017 “Why do I need a pet license anyhow?” We know you have asked this question. In this world where we are constantly being forced to pay for things that seem like red tape, a license for a pet seems like just another unreasonable charge. So, we thought we would explain exactly how the funds from pet license fees are used. First, each municipality has to appoint an Animal Control Officer. The ACO is on call 24 hours per day,
BARRINGTON’S ON TRACK 17
seven days per week and handles sick and injured animals, abused animals, animals that are running at large and sick wildlife that may pose a danger to the public. We pay a monthly fee for ACO services and in 2016 the total cost for the ACO was $6,000.00. Second, each municipality has to designate a facility to handle surrendered animals, animals that have been caught running at large, sick and injured
animals. Barrington contracts with Voorhees Animal Orphanage and the cost for their services in 2016 was also $6,000.00.
That brings our total costs for animal control services to $12,000.00. Do you know how much revenue was generated from pet license fees in 2016? Only $5,674.00. That is a shortfall of $6,326.00. License fees are supposed to cover the costs of animal control but that has not been the case in Barrington for quite some time. That means that taxpayers who don’t even own a pet are paying for those who do. Doesn’t seem quite right, does it? Please come in to get a license. The fee for a neutered pet is $12.00 and $15.00 for non-neutered. After April 30, a $10.00 late fee is imposed. Bring a current rabies certificate with you. If you really love animals, it’s the right thing to do.

A Barrington Tradition... F
or more than a half-century, families in the Barrington area have turned to the stately white home on Clements Bridge Road in their times of sorrow. Following in the footsteps of the respected proprietors of this iconic funeral home, Kirk Popiolek has gained the trust and confidence of local residents both through his professionalism and his community involvement. Kirk works tirelesssly to help create an attractive and energetic environment for people to raise their families and prosper in the community. Under his leadership for the past decade, Popiolek Funeral Home has been host to the final respects paid to some of the communityâ€™s most prominent citizens. Kirk stands ready day or night to assist you with making arrangements, whether it be immediate or planning for the future. You can feel free to call us at any time for more information and neighborly advice.
Pre-planning a funeral now assures that every little detail will follow your wishes. It is human nature to put it off, but planning a funeral in advance may be just about the most considerate thing that you can do for your family and loved ones. The decisions that must be made for a funeral can be complex and confusing. Worse, in a time of grief and stress, a family may overspend. Pre-planning now relieves your family of the burden of making those decisions, as well as the uncertainty of trying to guess what you would have wanted. You can also choose to pre-pay your plan and spare them the financial hardship, as well. We would be pleased to meet with you in your own home or in our office to discuss the details. It costs nothing to talk about it, and the peace of mind you will gain is beyond measure.
