REAL ESTATE BILLS
The borough will be participating in the￼ county’s change of dates for tax collecting. The discount period has been extended until June 30th and the flat period until October 31st.
SPRING HILL ACRES SEWER CLARIFICATION
The borough has received multiple inquiries about plans to put sewer in for the Spring Hill Acres development. This post is to clarify that the borough has no intentions of extending the system into SHA now or in the future. Anything you might hear to the contrary is simply untrue.
WATER/SEWER RATE UPDATES
The water rates paid by customers will not change for 2020.
Sewer rates will increase by a flat rate charge of $10/EDU per quarter for Capital projects. This same charge is currently paid as part of the water rates to offset projects that are slated for the future.
Council added this rate since the Borough was informed by North Cornwall Township that the Dairy Road Pump station needs to be completely overhauled to accommodate the future demand to the station.
The exact cost, or start date for this project is unknown at this time. The Borough pays for a portion of the operation and maintenance of the pump station on a yearly basis. The sewage collected here in town flows through this pump station to the City of Lebanon Authority Sewage Treatment Plant.
