STREET SWEEPING is scheduled for the week of June 6 – 10. Additional information will follow.
The Borough is preparing to put out street paving projects for bid, with work commencing this summer. With any street paving project, this is the time when necessary repairs/replacement of damaged curb and sidewalk are required to be completed. In accordance with the Pennsylvania Borough Code, property owners are responsible to make such repairs. These areas have been preliminarily marked in the field. Property owners will be receiving letters with additional details shortly.
The streets affected are:
South Pitt St. between High and Stiegel
North Grant St. between High and Gramby
North Charlotte St between Colebrook and Gramby

STORM WATER INLETS – Please keep an eye on any inlets near your house and keep them clear if you can – if not, ask your neighbors to help or call into the Borough office if the job looks too big for you to handle. If you see excessive ponding of water near an inlet please contact the Borough office.
SUMP PUMPS – Please remember that the Borough requires that all sump pumps go through grass or yards before getting into our storm water system. Also, no sump pump systems are permitted to be pumped directly into the sanitary (public sewer) system or directly onto a street or alley. If your system is connected to the sewer, it must be disconnected immediately. If you are not sure, please feel free to contact the Authority and their staff will be able to help you figure that out. The extra water in the system puts a strain on the sewer treatment plant and can result in problems for the Authority and increased cost for you.
The Susquehanna River Basin Commission has installed live stream cams (click here) at the Chiques Creek, upstream from the Borough.
Municipal Services bills are sent out twice per year, in January and July. You may pay in the Borough office during regular office hours or you may also pay online at the Payments link.
