 Currently, we are participating with the County Office of Emergency

Management to update the municipality’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The original

plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain

eligibility for certain federal grants as well as make sure we are working

together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent

possible. If you are interested in learning more about this project, please

10-28-13 - Mayor's Letter

Dear Property Owners and Residents
Enclosed please find your annual sewer bill for the calendar year 2011. The first portion
is due Monday, April 1, 2011 rather than June 1st. The second half is due October 1,
The change in billing dates from June to April and December to October has been
necessitated due to our obligation to make payments for the upgrading and relining of the
Borough’s antiquated sewer mains.
