Extension of Property Tax Discount Period

The Commissioners of West Pottsgrove Township in conjunction with Montgomery County Commissioners have decided to extend the County, MCCC, and Township property tax discount payment period from April 30th 2020 to May 31st 2020.

This initiative needs to be made by a Resolution. Given that the next scheduled Commissioners meeting of May 6, 2020 is after the currently established discount deadline, the Commissioners have authorized this Notice of Intent.

For those individuals that pay the face value between April 30th and May 31, 2020, they will be issued a refund of the discount amount.

The refund policy does not apply to Financial Institutions making payments on behalf of residents that have escrow accounts associated with their mortgage.

Reminder – Waste Management Update

We have been working with Waste Management over the past couple of weeks. We ask that you pay the billed amount and you will receive a credit on next quarter’s invoice. The quarterly amount going forward should be in the $64.00 range. We will confirm as soon as we know.

Also we would like to remind residents that it is a Township Ordinance to comply with SEC. 10-28. MUNICIPAL COLLECTION PROGRAM.

All collectible municipal waste generated or present within the Township shall be collected, transported, and disposed of by the Township or its Contractor with the exception of industrial, commercial properties and apartment buildings containing five or more units.

This shall include but not be limited to restaurants, hotels, cafes, garden type apartments or condominium complexes, apartment buildings, clubs, wholesale and retail fruit and produce dealers, warehouses, wholesale houses, stores, business places and industrial complexes which shall be responsible and arrange for the collection and disposal of their solid waste at their expense.

The Township held a contract bid for Disposal Services in order keep truck traffic to a minimum and having trash sitting out everyday of the week.. Waste Management was the lowest responsible bidder. As a residential property owner you are required to use the Township’s selected contractor.
