Sewer Rate Increase for 2013

sewer

Due to potential projects proposed by the Borough of Pottstown for improvements at the sewer plant and maintenance to our sewer system, we are forced to increase our sewer rates for 2013. This increase will be effective beginning January 1, 2013.

The Sewer Department has maintained costs on the operation of our system, but capital improvements are necessary to the WPT system. The upgrades at the sewer plant and
to the WPT system the next few years will be in excess of $500,000. We contributed a payment of $96,000 to Pottstown Borough in 2012 for plant improvements and will be required to pay our share of the water pump project in the amount of $115,000 in 2013.

The Township will only be increasing the EDU Fee for all customers, metered and non- metered. This increase will include a Three Dollar per EDU Capital Expense Fund
Charge. There will be no increase in the usage fee. The following increase will become effective January 1, 2013.

2013 Dog Licensing Begins

dog-license

On December 1st of each year the West Pottsgrove Township begins to sell new and renewed dog licenses for the upcoming year. As you know all dog owners are required to license their dogs with the Pennsylvania Dog Law Enforcement Office via their respective county treasurers. Revenues from dog licenses are used to fund dog law enforcement throughout the state and as importantly, from a local perspective, to maintain a registry of dogs and owners which is accessible by local law enforcement when needed.

Attached to this communication you will find PDFs of Treasurer, Jason Salus’ 2013 Dog License Flyer. It is Treasurer Salus’ desire to communicate the importance of, and requirement to, license dogs as broadly as possible, therefore we are providing this document to you for your information should you get constituent questions.
