We’re in the middle of another fun summer in Wharton. Summer recreation and summer reading at the Library are both under way. Canal Day and the fireworks are coming up on August 24th which is always a great day. For more information about Canal Day you can visit their website. Our 7th Annual Job Fair will be held in September. Sign ups for fall sports will be taking place soon. Keep an eye on each sport’s website for sign up dates.

The bid for updating Memorial Park has been awarded and construction will be starting soon. I’m looking forward to watching the progression of this project.  In keeping with the tradition of the park, we are going to be re-doing all of the existing personalized bricks in the park and placing them in the new park. You are also able to participate in updating the park by purchasing a new personalized brick using this form. Honor a Veteran, remember a loved one, or simply engrave your name in history by purchasing a brick for $30.

We are going to attempt to salvage the existing bricks and will set up a time for those owners to pick them up. Check back here for more information once construction begins.

Take your dog down to Wharton’s new Dog Park on West Dewey Avenue, which is now open.

The Borough is now accepting online payments for property taxes, water, and sewer bills. For more information about this click here.
