Grass Cutting Season is winding down, and fall cleanup time is quickly approaching! Please remember that discharging, raking, or blowing of grass or leaves into the streets is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. This can cause slippery conditions when wet, clogs our storm water drains, and contributes to the degradation of our streams and the Chesapeake Bay.
Leaves will be picked up weekly,without additional tags,on the following Saturdays:Nov 5, 12, 19 and Dec 3, 10.
LEAVES MUST BE PLACED IN BROWN KRAFT BAGS AND PLACED CURBSIDE BY 5:00 AM THE DAY OF PICKUP.
Due to infestation from the Emerald Ash Borer, a number of trees have been removed from Memorial Park. Unfortunately most of the trees at Memorial Park are Ash trees and have been affected to the point of being beyond treatment. The Borough is working on a plan to manage this problem, which began with the removal of the trees that posed the most significant hazard to the public. A plan will also be developed to plant new trees that are not affected by this insect.
IMPORTANT – Open Burning of waste materials, including leaves and brush, is prohibited within the Borough (SECTION F Open Burning)
If any resident sees storm drains that are clogged with debris, please contact the Borough office. With the leaves beginning to fall, we want to make sure all of our drains are clear and able to safely carry away stormwater runoff.
