Borough Hall Closure
Due to continued COVID exposures in the county, the borough office and window are closed to the public for the foreseeable future to ensure the safety of staff and residents. For water / sewer payments, see link below to pay online (highly suggested). We are still accepting payments in the drop box, located outside the main doors of the Community Center and this box can also be used to drop off any borough related correspondence as well. Taxes can NOT be dropped off at borough hall and must be paid direct to the tax collector.
If you need assistance, please call borough hall at 610-944-8220 and someone will return the message and schedule an appointment if needed.
Pay water bills online here (a new window will open).
Band-shell and Bridge in Park
- The band-shell in the park has been demolished due to decay at the base of the 35 year old laminated wood arches. The roof was removed but the stage and electric will remain for outdoor events this year. A temporary tent should be in place for most events this summer. Long term: Council is getting estimates and looking at options to cover the stage and possibly cover the seating area as well. The borough is pursuing matching grants (DCNR and DCED) to help cover the expense but unfortunately this grant process extends the time where the stage will not have a permanent cover.
- There is a tentative plan to replace the bridge that was washed out last summer. Engineering planning for the bridge is underway as well as applying for DEP permits.
Restrooms at Park Reopened.
The park restrooms have been re-opened. For now. Unfortunately the same weekend they were opened the restrooms were again vandalized. Police are asking for assistance if anyone has any info. Security video from cameras as the park is being scrutinized by police as well.
