Monthly Council Committee Meetings have been cancelled until further notice. Borough Council Meeting on May 13 will probably be online.
From the Water Company:
Water bills were mailed April 10, 2020. Due to the ongoing threat of Covid-19 the due date for this billing is being extended 31 days. The due date will now be June 1, 2020. The Borough Office is closed to the public and the Office staff is working remotely. If possible, please MAIL your water payments. The locked box between the Borough Office doors is being checked on a weekly basis only.
If you have an unusually high water bill and feel that it is incorrect, first check around your home and be certain you don’t have a leaking faucet, running toilet, or a leaking pipe. What might appear to be a small drip adds up quite quickly. If nothing is leaking, please get a reading from your inside meter, usually in the basement or garage area, and compare it to reading on the outside remote reader. If those readings match, most likely the cause is a drip, leak or running toilet. If however, they do not match, please call or email the Borough with the inside reading and we will adjust the bill if necessary. Once the stay at home order is lifted and our Borough workers are safe to enter homes we will contact you for a time when we can replace your meter/reader.
From the Tax Collector:
2020 County/Borough Real Estate tax payments and 2020 Per Capita tax payments can be made using one check. Payments can be made using the bill payer option through your bank if you choose. I just ask that in the memo section of the check please enter your bill number so I can record your payment(s) correctly. Please refrain from using cash as your payment of choice. I have had a few checks where the written portion of the check was incorrect and I could not accept them. When writing out your check, please be sure that the written portion of the check is wrote out correctly, take a moment to double check before submitting. If possible, please MAIL your tax payment, the locked box between the Borough Office doors is being checked on a weekly basis only. If you submitted your payment and it has not cleared within a day or two of your submittal, please be patient. I am going to the Post Office twice a week, to limit my potential exposure to Covid-19. If your check has not cleared a week after your submittal please give me a call, 610-749-2909 or send me an email, email@example.com and I will check to be sure that I do not have it in my possession.
From the Riegelsville Union Cemetery:
It has been called to the Cemetery’s administration that tombstones were, what it appears to be, intentionally knocked over. This is a disgraceful act and if the person or persons are caught, they will be prosecuted. This heinous act most likely happened at night. Although there are no posted hours for entering the Cemetery, there is really no good reason for anyone to be in there after dusk. If anyone sees or hears any goings on in the Cemetery that appears to be malicious or vandalistic please call the Cemetery number, 267-424-4290 or if you feel that the police need to be immediately involved please call the non-emergency State Police number, 215-249-9191 and then call the Cemetery number to inform us what is going on. Also, just a reminder, there are no dogs allowed in the Cemetery. There are numerous signs posted and still some people feel the need to walk right by them and enter the Cemetery with their dogs. This no dogs allowed signage includes the grass strips located on the outside of the Cemetery walls as well as the grounds that lay within. Please respect the families and friends that visit our Cemetery and abide by the no dogs request.
