Borough Newsletter – April 2019

Welcome Spring!

Items of Interest

With warmer weather comes outdoor activities. Children will be outside playing, riding bikes, walking to and from school, and enjoying the weather. More people will be outside on our streets. Be mindful of traffic signs, stop signs, and speed limits. Slow down on borough streets and obey all stop signs.

If you are performing any property maintenance or additions to your home or on your property, contact Bill Carpenter to determine if a permit is required.

If you are a landlord, and have any tenant changes during the year, the new tenant information must be reported to Billy Carpenter, at the Borough Office. Forms are available during regular hours.

Brush Pick Up

Brush pickup begins April 1. Please leave brush, leaves, and grass  clippings in bags or containers on your curb. Any bags or containers should not weigh more than 40 pounds. Keep in mind brush longer than 5 feet or more than 4 inches in diameter will be not be removed.  Leave brush for Monday pick up.

Also, remember this is a courtesy to our residents. At times, because of other projects, it is not feasible for our road crew to pick up brush. You may take leaves and other brush to Project 70 in Philipsburg.

Open burning of leaves, paper, boxes, or rubbish is strictly prohibited in the borough. However, cooking fire is allowed. Stop by the borough building to review borough ordinances during regular office hours, 12:30 to 4:30, Monday through Friday.
