Thanksgiving:

                Borough Council and Staff wish you and your family a safe and Happy Holiday!

Office Closed:

                Borough Offices will be closed Thursday Nov.23 – Friday Nov. 24 – Monday Nov. 27th.

Holiday (Thanksgiving) Garbage Pick-up:

                Garbage pick-up will be at the usual time on both Monday Nov. 20th and Monday Nov. 27th

Garbage pickup: Must be Placed Out by 8:00

                The garbage collectors will only make one pass around town.

If your garbage is not out by 8:00, you will have to keep it until the following week.

                NO exceptions.

Sidewalks: Parking on them or Driving over them:

                It is illegal to drive over any sidewalks, except where it has been supported for driveways. Also, there is no parking on them at any time. This is part of the new ordinance, and fines will be issued.

Change Clocks and Smoke Detectors:

                Remember to set your clocks BACK at 2:00 am on November 5th. Also, this is a great time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors! Smoke detectors save lives…but they must be in working order to do so.

Leaves:

                So far leaf pick-up has gone smoothly. We will continue picking them up until the leaves have fallen.

More Thanks for Christmas Light Donations:

                We would like to thank the following for the additional donations for the new Christmas Decorations:            R.E. Johnson Electric – Germanoski Family Dentistry - Barbara Clark

Water Emergency Numbers:

                Water Emergency numbers are as follows: Days: 814-763-4600 Nights and weekends: 814-720-1802

Mowing: Your responsibility:

                It’s time to start mowing and trimming the grass along the new construction!

Property owners will be responsible for mowing and trimming all grass on their property, including the rights-of-ways adjoining the properties.

Hunting Season: Safe Hunting Please:

                Remember to abide by the following regulations if you are planning to hunt in the Borough on the East side of the railroad tracks: You must be 150 yards from a building – you must have written permission from the land owner – and you must shoot in safe direction. Please be safe, and Good Luck!

                There is NO Hunting or shooting firearms on the west side of the railroad tracks!

Reminder: Snow Parking Restrictions: It’s that time of year again!!!

                Like it or not… Snow will be coming shortly. The snow parking ordinance starts on November 1st.            Our goal is to keep the streets clear of snow and passable for vehicles. Violators will be fined.

No Plowing or Blowing Snow on or across Streets:

                It is illegal to plow snow into or across streets and alleys! The same is true for snow blowing. Snow must not be placed into streets, even prior to the Borough plowing snow.

When the Borough Plows Snow: Driveways

                Every year we get complaints for plowing snow back into driveways. We need to get the snow off streets, and occasionally it ends up in the ends of driveways. We are sorry, but it cannot be helped. (Remember that it is illegal to push, shovel, plow or blow it back into the streets.) Violators will be fined!

Sidewalks - clear from snow and ice.

                If you elected to keep sidewalks, or if you are required to have them, they must be cleared from snow at least once every day by 10:00 am. Be prepared, as this is a requirement. We also suggest using sand instead of salt on new sidewalks for the first year after construction.

Light up night:

                The Saegertown Women’s Improvement Club will host the Annual Christmas Light up Night on Sunday Evening December 3rd, 2018. At 6:00 pm. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive at the Gazebo by Fire truck, and we hope he will be bringing his elves with him! After meeting with children, Santa will proceed to the United Methodist Church at 6:30 for the annual Community Christmas Party where children can continue to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. They will be treated to hot coco, cookies and the children will be able to make Christmas Crafts! This will be a great way to kick, off the Christmas Season!

                Also remember that this will be the night the NEW Christmas Decorations will be lighted for the first time!

Everyone please plan on attending!! It should be a fun night!

Jordan Park…Bathrooms are Closed for the Season:

                The bathrooms at Jordan park have been winterized and are closed until next April.

The Playground and Basketball Courts will be open as weather permits!

Support the Heritage Society:

                The Heritage Society has applied for the Toyota Giveback Program. From 11/1/17 until 11/28/17, stop in to Palmiero Toyota and cast a vote; one vote per person per day. Vote as many times as you want. Help the society win from $500 up to $5,000.

Most Importantly… in November…Remember Veteran’s Day:

                November 14th is Veteran’s Day. Say Thank You to any Vet you see that day. With all the disrespect being shown to our flag and the National Anthem this year, make a point of letting our veteran’s know their service is appreciated!
