Gift Card Collection for Fire Victims

Stay in the holiday spirit by continuing the season of giving. Recently, a Wharton family was a victim of a house fire and lost everything. In an effort to help them, Town Hall is collecting gift cards to places like Shop Rite, Target, Walmart, clothing stores, etc. to address their immediate needs. You can bring gift cards in to Town Hall for them until the end of January. We are unable to accept any donations of cash, checks, or actual items as the family is unable to store them. Thank you for helping fellow members of the community.

Winter Reminders

Reminder that the parking of vehicles on the roadways when they are snow covered or during icy conditions is prohibited. Any vehicles parking in the Borough's municipal lots must have a permit and are permitted to only park in their designated parking spot.

All sidewalks must be cleared of snow and ice within 24 hours after the last snow fall.  Please do not clean off vehicles in the already plowed roadways or shovel snow into the cleared roads.
