The Borough Office is CLOSED and is operating under emergency circumstances.  The closure includes the Administrative offices and Public Works Department.  Administrative staff is answering phone calls.  Please dial 412/963-1100 and listen to the greeting for your party's extension.  Leave a voicemail, and the individual will return your call.  Please dial 911 in case of an emergency.   

The rubbish bins/recycling center is CLOSED until further notice due the current state of emergency.  

Brush Collection is currently suspended due to COVID-19. The Borough is asking residents to place their brush in wooded areas on their property instead of curbside. This will help the environment and the Borough during this time.

The PA Department of Revenue announced that Pennsylvania’s filing deadlines were extended to July 15, 2020 like the Federal deadlines.   For local EIT purposes, Keystone Collection Agency is accordingly extending the Individual filing deadlines to match the State and Federal date of July 15, 2020.   They will not apply penalty and interest on Tax Year 2019 Final Return payments until after July 15th

Applications for all permits will be limited to emergency repairs only, in accordance with Governor Wolf's order. All other applications and submissions will be processed once Borough offices reopen. Inspections for existing permits will commence once Governor Wolf's order is lifted. Please contact the Code Official with any questions. 


The health and safety of our residents and employees is our highest priority. As information becomes available regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we want to let you know we are taking steps to prepare our Borough. The Borough is following the recommendations of the State and Allegheny County Health Departments along with those from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Residents can do their part by taking preventative actions to help stop the spread of germs including staying home if sick, covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or using your elbow/sleeve, washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and routinely cleaning frequently-touched surfaces and objects.

Please find ongoing information on the coronavirus via the Allegheny County Health Department website (, the Pennsylvania Department of Health website (, and the Center for Disease Control website (
