President’s Message

Since our last edition of the newsletter, the Township has changed trash carriers.  The current carrier is J.P. Mascaro and Sons. The trash along with the recycling will be picked up every week. There are two toters, a large (96 gallon) for trash and a smaller (64 gallon) for recycling.  The Township is aware that no everyone has received one or both of these toters. We are working with Mascaro on getting both toters in place for everyone. The Township has been receiving inquiries about the trash and recycling pickups. J.P. Mascaro and sons have three types of trucks running through the Township on collection day - one is strictly trash, one is strictly recycling, and the third handles both trash & recycling. We know that some residents were concerned that the trash and recycling were being mixed together. If you have any concerns or questions about your trash pickup, please call the Township and we will be happy to reach out to Mascaro.

It has come to our attention about the parking on streets in residential neighborhoods. Roadway is the portion of a highway improved, designed, or ordinarily used for vehicular traffic. It is a public roadway, unless otherwise designated, a person can park on the roadway. The road in front of your residence is public, meaning anyone can park a legally registered vehicle there. Some exceptions are: (1) in front of a public or private driveway, (2) within 15 feet of a fire hydrant, (3) within 20 feet of a crosswalk or intersection, or (4) within 30 feet of any flashing signal, stop sign, yield sign or traffic control signal located at the site of the roadway.

The weather is turning warmer which means that the grass will be growing as well as trees and shrubs. We ask that you maintain your property and keep your grass as well as any shrubs or trees trimmed. This applies to both the front and back of your residence. This also applies to junk vehicles, tires, and garbage on your property.  This will prevent you from receiving a warning or citation if the violation is not corrected.

We are working on community events and programs for the Township. If you wish to serve on a committee, please notify the Township.

Please remember as the weather turns warmer, more people will be outside. This includes children playing. Be observant to anyone who may run out into the street.

On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, enjoy the warmer weather, and enjoy the Township’s parks, trails, and recreation areas.
