Washington Street between Mervine and Woodland Streets is CLOSED due to poles and wires down. ALSO, the 2200 block of E. High Street is CLOSED due to poles and wires down. Both of these closures are for an extended period of time. Travelers can navigate around these areas via other roadways. Thank you for your patience while these areas are repaired.
Our officers spend much of their shifts patrolling your neighborhoods. We recognize that nothing is more valuable to our residents than your family's safety. One thing that we run into frequently at night are open garage doors. Early on Saturday morning Officers Romanowicz and Lighthart found just such a garage door. They checked things out and spoke to the homeowner who closed the door. The next day the homeowner posted a snippet of the Ring camera video along with this note:
Per an order from Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Health to practice social distancing the Township Building will continue to be closed to the public through March 20, 2020. We will still be providing essential services to our residents (police, sewer, building permits). Our phones will be manned by essential Township staff, and we will be here for you to answer any questions you may have, just in a more remote manner. Building inspections and permits will be processed, and Public Works will be dispatched on an as needed basis.
With today being National Slam-the-Scam Day, we figured we would post some useful tips on how to avoid being scammed. You can check out the attached flyer, or we also have some information available on our Crimewatch Portal under the Resources tab. You can always feel free to contact our Crime Prevention Officer, Officer Fred Lynch, with any other questions you may have.
