Borough Officials Remind Residents about Property Upkeep

Borough officials issued a notice Thursday to remind residents about property maintenance regulations.

Sanitation: All exterior property and premises should be maintained in a clean, safe and sanitary condition.

Weeds: Weeds and grass are not permitted to grow in excess of six inches. Note: Grass trimmings cannot be discarded onto the road or in storm sewers.

Rodent Harborage: All property must be kept free from rodent harborage and infestation. When rodents are found, they should be exterminated by an approved process and proper precautions taken to prevent re-infestation.

Accessory Structures: All accessory structures, including but not limited to, detached garages, fences and walls should be structurally sound and in good repair.

Exterior vehicles: Except as provided for in other regulations, no inoperative or unlicensed motor vehicle shall be kept on any premises and no vehicle shall be in a state of major disassembly. Painting of vehicles is prohibited unless conducted inside an approved spray booth.

Swimming Pools: Swimming pools shall be maintained in a clean and sanitary condition.

Exterior Structure: The exterior of a structure shall be maintained in good repair and remain structurally sound.

Rubbish and Garbage: All exterior property and the interior of every structure, should be free of accumulation of rubbish or garbage.

Street Names and Signs: Property owners are required to post and maintain address numbers at all times.

Penalties: Any violation that results in charges filed against the resident or property owner may result in fines and penalties.

In the event you have questions or concerns or would like to report conditions that require the attention of our Code Enforcement Officer, feel free to contact the Borough at 724-758-7777.
