Roundabout Driving Tip:
When driving on or into a round-a-bout use your turn signal.
This makes the transition in or out of the round-a-bout easier for everyone.
Hot Coals – Ashes:
Make sure there are no hot coals or ashes in your garbage. Leave ashes sit for several days and then soak them with water before placing them in the garbage. A garbage truck recently caught fire from hot coals. Please be extra cautious with any hot items.

Water Lines - Who is Responsible?
The Borough is only responsible for water lines to the “Curb Box”. This is located near the street on the edge of your property. Property owners are responsible from the curb box to your house. This includes any leaks or frozen water lines.
Reminder: It is illegal to plow snow onto streets or roads. Also do NOT plow snow onto someone else’s property.
Here is the PennDOT recommended way to plow a driveway.
Safety Tip: Winter Driving:
The first few snowfalls usually bring about several unnecessary fender-benders. Here are some driving tips:
-Decrease your speed on snowy or icy roads
-Leave yourself plenty of room to stop
-Brake gently to avoid skidding.
-Turn on your lights
-Keep lights and windshields clean from snow
-Use lower gears to increase traction (particularly on hills)
-Do NOT use cruise control
-Take your foot off the gas and shift to neutral to slow down on icy roads.
