The Borough is currently working through the process to apply to FEMA to be a part of the Community Rating System (CRS) which will provide a discounted rate for flood insurance to Manheim Borough property owners. Over the past year, we have gone through the initial feasibility and assessment, and it has been determined that we will be eligible for the CRS. Our application to FEMA will occur in early 2019. From the time of application to approval may take approximately 18-24 months, at which time the discounted rates will take effect.
South Hazel Street and North Linden Street – both projects tentatively scheduled for Late June / July. Additional project information will be provided to residents as the projects approach.
South Hazel Street – Extending from High Street to Stiegel Street. This project will utilize the full-depth reclamation process between Ferdinand and Stiegel which will essentially reconstruct the entire street. Between High and Ferdinand, the street has a concrete base and will therefore be milled and overlayed in this section. UGI will also be replacing a gas main in South Hazel Street between High and Ferdinand ahead of this project, tentatively scheduled for April/May. Residents along S Hazel will be receiving additional information directly from UGI.
North Linden Street – Extending from High Street to Gramby Street. This project will utilize the full-depth reclamation process which will essentially reconstruct the entire street.
UGI West High/S Penn Gas Main Project
March 11th UGI Update – UGI will be finishing work in the Penn/Cherry area, as well as several tie-ins at intersections over the next two weeks. UGI anticipates beginning work in Market Square the week of March 25th, with that work expected to last for approximately 6 weeks.
All traffic lanes in the Square will remain open, but periodic traffic interruptions can be expected. There will be no overnight work. Weekend work, however, is anticipated to expedite the work progress. Parking restrictions along the outside perimeter of the Square will be required. Additional temporary parking restrictions will be necessary and will be location-specific dependent on the work being done. Flaggers will be in place to assist with traffic flow and pedestrian crossings within the Square. All businesses and residents in Market Square will be getting direct notifications regarding the project from UGI.
PennDOT’s West High St Paving Project has been postponed until this year due to the above UGI project. The paving work is anticipated to begin after completion of the above work – likely mid-May/early-June.

2017 and Earlier Completed projects:
The purpose of the 2017 street projects was primarily that of preventive maintenance in order to extend the life of the affected streets and to allow the Borough to utilize our limited funds in a more efficient manner. Similar to what many people do with residential driveways and parking lots, the seal coat helps to prevent water from seeping into and below the surface. This water, along with the freeze/thaw cycles, are the primary cause of pot holes and more significant street damage, which results in the need for more extensive (and expensive) repairs.
Wolf Street Parking Lot – New lighting has been installed, enhancing night-time visibility and safety, and the surface has been re-sealed. The Cardboard Dumpsters have been permanently relocated to the parking lot at Logan Park off of Ferdinand Street.
Police/EMS Building Project: Construction is complete. The police are now operating out of the new building. Emergency Services Campus
Chiques Creek Sediment Removal (72 @ Fruitville Pike) – Work has been completed for the removal of sediment from the Chiques Creek. This will greatly enhance capacity and flow through this area. Chiques Creek sediment removal plans
Adele Ave Stormwater improvements: The project is now complete. 2015-10-01 – Adele Avenue plans (BID SET)
Stiegel & Penn Street: Resurfacing/Stormwater Project: This project is now complete. 2014-07-14 – West Stiegel and Penn Street Improvements (BID SET)

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.
In addition, please monitor the storm water facilities that you see or live near. If you see something that looks wrong or that is causing these facilities to be polluted or blocked, please call the Borough office at (717) 665-2461.
- Sediment leaving a construction site during a storm or being carried out onto the public road
