Bellefonte Borough Council approved courtesy parking for this Holiday Season.

The first time the parking enforcement officer observes your car with no time on the meter, he will give you a complimentary pass of two hours. On his second pass through on that same day, and with no time on the meter and the two hours have passed, a ticket will be issued.

Courtesy parking begins on November 24, 2016 (Thanksgiving Day) and lasts through January 1, 2017 (New Year’s Day). We encourage you to use this opportunity to do some holiday shopping in beautiful downtown Bellefonte…and have a HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!

The last day for brush and grass container pickup is Wednesday, November 16, 2016.

The last Saturday in 2016 that the landfill will be open is November 19. Remember, though, that the landfill is accessible
year-round, Monday through Friday (8a.m.-4:30p.m.), when you pick up a landfill key at the Borough office. There is a $10 deposit required, which is returned when the key is brought back. The key must be returned by 4:30 p.m. the day it is borrowed. If not, you could forfeit your $10 deposit and lose the privilege of using the landfill.
