Borg’s Woods Statement from McNerney

Received an e-mail from Eric M which included a statement from McNerney regarding the recent “tree avalanche” and Vernal Pond issue in Borg’s Woods. Please see below.

FALLEN TREES — Dennis McNerney states that the County will not cut or touch the trees which fell during the March 13th storm. Presumably this means that major limbs and small fallen trees will be removed which are blocking the main trail which runs from Allen to Byrne Streets.

MOSQUITOS — McNerny stated that the County Parks Department will let the Bergen County Mosquito Control Commission continue their current practices regarding the water level and the mosquito issue at the vernal ponds.

This is not good news, but it is not unexpected. However, it should be noted that McNerney was called to other business and did not finish his statement. McNerney was copied on the e-mail.  A new blog will be posted regarding this matter if a response is received.

    You lost me a little with your comments. At first he said the County was not touching the trees and go on to say trees will be cleared from the path. Also, what about the longer path which runs at the base of the hill from Fairmout all the way to the houses on Lookout. This is where the most damaged occured. It seems they only mention the path from Allen to Byrne.
