Snow Removal Reminder

02.27.2015  |  Email This Post   |  Print This Post

*Please abide by the signage in the public lots and on the streets for snow plowing. If these areas are not clear of cars it is very difficult to remove the snow. Failure to abide by the signage can result in a fine to the car’s owner.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Cold Weather Tip

As the cold weather continues to be an issue this winter; Here are a few tips for keeping your water lines and meter from freezing.

-wrap heat tape around the lines
-let your faucet open to run just a trickle to keep the water flowing

If your water lines should freeze, the resident’s responsibility runs to the curb box. A lot of times it may be necessary to contact a welder who can hook a welding machine to the line and run a charge through to break up the ice.

If the borough needs to replace the meter and/or freeze plate because it has frozen, there may be a charge.
