During this time, they will be making themselves available for all emergency situations in the Borough. They will continue to check on the Borough after storms and emergency calls to make sure everything is in order. 

This decision was made to prevent the risk of contracting or spreading of COVID-19. We are trying to minimize the risks to our employees and their family members. 

The Borough Manager will be in the office at least 2 times a week to keep the Borough running smoothly during this time. However, she will be checking e-mails and voicemails from her home, so you can still call or e-mail her with any questions or concerns throughout the week. 

Thank you for your patience & understanding during this time. We hope that everyone remains safe and healthy!!

Please call 9-1-1 to report any emergencies.

TRASH PICK-UP DURING COVID-19 

County Hauling will continue municipal & recycling collections as is, for now, but will be working closely with county officials. The following steps will be taken: 1) Only properly bagged trash will be collected. To protect the health and safety of our employees, we have reminded them that loose trash, while never acceptable, can be especially dangerous during a contagious outbreak. Please note that loose trash on roadways or lawns will be the responsibility of residents. LOOSE TRASH IN TRASH CANS OR OUTSIDE OF TRASH CANS NOT PLACED IN BAGS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.  2) We will need to suspend bulk pick-ups. Given the larger amount of people home there is a significant increase in the amount of trash being produced. Our primary focus is on eliminating recurring trash within your community.  3) We will be suspending yard waste pick-ups until further notice.  4) The CDC has announced that the virus can stay on cardboard for up to 24 hours and plastic for up to 3 days. At this time, we are discontinuing cardboard collection and should be placed in with the MSW trash IN BAG.

THE BOROUGH HAS DECIDED NOT TO ADOPT OUR DECLARATION OF EMERGENCY AT THIS TIME. 

After reviewing PEMA guidelines and answering No to questions that would qualify our muncipality for emergency funding, it was decided that we will not have to adopt our declaration at this time. If our situation changes and warrants us to adopt it, then we will provide updates. 

The Borough has now contracted services with

DAVID COLLURA    412-384-0823

to trap and remove the following wildlife within the municipality:

Raccoon, groundhog, skunk, opossum, and squirrel. Also, he will remove snakes and bats when they are located in the living quarters of a home.

**NOTE: A surcharge of $35.00 will be imposed for emergency calls received between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.**
