Other Resident Reminders
All animals are to be kept under restraint, licensed or unlicensed (Ordinance #374). Animals are to be held in leash and under control of the owner or attendant of such animals. The animals' owners are responsible for removing any defecation on properties other than their own, and are subject to fines up to $300.00 if they do not comply. Be kind and remember your neighbors and friends who also like to walk along the streets, sidewalks and in the parks.
Remember you must carry clean-up equipment when you are walking your dog. According to Ordinance #374 and #419,
No person shall permit their dog to run at large upon public places, streets, alleys, sidewalks, or private property of others.
Dogs must be restrained with a leash not exceeding 6 feet in length at all times while on public places.
No person shall allow their animal to defecate on said properties without immediate cleanup, removal and proper disposal of feces.
Violaters are subject to fines and penalties.
A permit is not required for a yard sale. We just ask that you keep vehicles parked to where traffic can still move freely on the street.
International Property Maintenance Code Section 302.4: Weeds, states all premises and exterior property shall be maintained free from weeds or plant growth in excess of 10 inches. If notices are not complied with, the Borough will have the service contracted out and will assess the costs to the property owner. Your cooperation and concern for the appearance and safety of our Borough is appreciated.
Christmas Tree Removal
Christmas trees will be picked up by the Public Works Department the first three Fridays in January. Place trees at the curb Friday morning
Residents are requested not to plow, shovel or blow snow from their sidewalks or driveways back into the streets. When clearing your driveway, push snow to the right of your driveway or "down stream". It is impossible not to have snow pushed into your driveways. Priority is given to streets along bus routes and hills, secondary streets and alleys are done as quickly as possible. Residents have been requested to park in their driveway or off the main streets during heavier snow conditions, to better accommodate snow plows and material spreading vehicles.
