General Foreman: Rob Riordan
Lenny has worked for the Borough for 26 years. Prior to becoming Superintendent, he held the positions of Tree Foreman and General Foreman. Lenny holds a certification for small engine repair from the NRI Institute, owned his own landscaping business and was the certified driving instructor for the Hasbrouck Heights Driving School for 18 years. He is a current member of the Public Works Association.
The goal of the Hasbrouck Heights Public Works Department (DPW) is to keep the borough running smoothly and efficiently while maintaining the character, safety and cleanliness that we are proud of by taking proactive and preventative actions. We are responsible for the sanitation and recycling collection, maintenance of all parks, playgrounds, all Borough buildings, properties, sanitation, storm water sewers and pump stations. The Hasbrouck Heights Public Works Department maintains the potholes that need to be filled throughout the year, salting and plowing of all the borough and county roads in the winter and facilitate all requests for borough tree trimming, removal and stump grinding. We also maintain the fleet of vehicles for the Police, Fire, and Public Works Departments.
Some of the heavy daily tasks performed by the DPW may go unnoticed, but I am very proud to work with General Foreman Rob Riordan and our Public Works Department employees whose dedication, hard work, and attention to detail are performed to the best of their ability while maintaining a professional environment.
