Bridgeville PD 2023 Angel Tree

Date Posted: Tuesday, November 7th, 2023

Would you like to help a family in your community this holiday season? This year, the Bridgeville Police Department will be hosting an Angel Tree! You might notice the officers wearing longer beards than normal; that’s because they are participating in “No Shave Winter!” They will be donating money towards our Angel Tree fund to be able to have longer facial hair while in uniform this winter. The funds will be used to buy gifts for this year’s adopted family.   How can you help? Starting November 20th, you can pick a tag from our Christmas Tree in the Police Department lobby for donation suggestions. New, unwrapped gifts can be returned to the PD by December 18th with the angel tag attached.

Sussex County Scheduled to Perform Extensive Sewer Service Repairs in April

Date Posted: Wednesday, March 29th, 2023

PDF of Letter To:  Bridgeville Residents & Businesses Re:  Sewer System Rehabilitation Project – March 28, 2023 Over the last year, the County has been inventorying and assessing the sewer system in Bridgeville.  As you may already know, Bridgeville’s sewer system is older and has many clay sewer mains, which are fragile and prone to cracks and leaks.  To make repairs without having to replace the entire system, the County has brought in Standard Pipe Services to clean, inspect, and repair the sewer lines with a lining system. The choice to line rather than replace the mains will minimize the impact on the public, both in the cost of the system to you and street accessibility while repairs are being made. The lining system provides structural support and seals pipe fractures, essentially creating a new pipe within a pipe. Repair work is scheduled to start in mid-April and is expected […]
