Resident Advisories

Sidewalks are an integral part of the fabric of our community.  Please be sure to keep sidewalks clear of ice, snow, shrubbery, grass and any other landscaping that would interfere with the safe passage of pedestrians and children on bicycles.  Snow and ice should be removed within 12 hours of daylight after a storm ends.  Sidewalks should be completely clear from overgrowth and trees should be trimmed to allow clearance up to seven (7) feet.  If your sidewalk needs repair, a permit is required and can be obtained in the Borough Hall or online (under Forms & Permits).
