Mayor William J. Chegwidden
As usual, spring brings with it a lot of fun and exciting activities around the Borough. In April, baseball and soccer have their opening day ceremonies planned as well as the Fire Department’s annual Easter Egg Hunt. The Municipal Alliance and the Police Department are hosting an even in April for parents to learn about social media and teen suicide awareness. May is another busy month with the FOP fishing contest and the Memorial Day Parade.
This year we are working on some great updates to our parks in town with Memorial Park getting redesigned and refurbished and giving facelifts to some of our other parks. Our Dog Park Committee is also hard at work at planning a new Dog Park for our residents.
Spring also brings the start of our improvement projects for this year. Improvements are scheduled to take place on Downs Ave, Columbia St., Michigan Ave., Kitchell Ave., Ford Ave., Wabash Ave., Cutler St., Orange St., and Summit Ave. Residents are encouraged to sign up for our Everbridge notification system to receive messages from the Borough about things such as emergencies, garbage collection changes, road closures, water service issues, Borough events, etc. You can choose how you want to be contacted and what you want to be contacted about.
