RECYCLING CONTAINERS--GRANT RECEIVED--AVAILABLE SOON
The supply of residential curbside recycling containers has been exhausted but we are pleased to announce the Pennsylvania Department of EnvironmentalProtection has awarded the city a grant of $18,645 to purchase additional containers. We expect to have them in the spring or early summer of 2013 and will provide additional information soon on how residences can obtain their new containers.
Street Name Sign Replacement Project
The Street Department is in the process of installing new street name signs at all street intersections in town. The project will take several months to complete, so please be patient if you see signs going up but your street has not been done yet.
