Public Works

Snow Removal

  • After a snow event, borough residents are required to clear their sidewalks of snow within 24 hours.
  • Please do not shovel or blow snow onto public roads, as this creates a driving hazard and can result in fines.

Dead Animals

  • Please report dead animals on street to Public Works for removal.
  • Public Works does not handle problems with live animals. We recommend you check your phone book for licensed animal control contractors

Leaf Pickup Schedule 2018

Attention All Residents: Leaf collection will be ending for the season on Friday, December 21.  During the last week, crews may deviate from the published schedule to attend to the areas most in need of collection.  Please refrain from placing any additional leaves at the curb next week-they will not be collected!  

Please note: on wet and rainy days, leaf collection takes extra time and is sometimes not possible.  

It is recommended residents bag their leaves for pickup by the trash collector.  

Thank you for your patience and understanding.  Our crews dealt with unusually bad weather this season which forced us to modify our collection routine.
