Notice for mowing lawns
When mowing your lawn avoid shooting grass onto the streets and sidewalks–causes major clogs in catch basins and storm sewers–Remember Borough Ordinance states “Any grass, vegetation over 10 inches is a violation” Let’s keep our community weed free.
Bagged leaves are picked up on a random basis–place them curbside–we will pick up–Consider becoming eco friendly and using paper compostable leaf bags
Appeal for FEMA Flood Map changes
To appeal a home’s placement in what is officially called a Special Flood Hazard Area, the homeowner must show the lowest adjacent grade, or the lowest ground touching the structure, is at or above what is called the Base Flood Elevation. The Base Flood Elevation is the computed elevation to which flood water is anticipated to rise during the base flood used in determining the land is in a Special Flood Hazard Area.
Commissioner Miller noted that it is the homeowner’s responsibility to provide this information in a letter to FEMA. For this type of appeal, called a Letter of Map Amendment, there is no charge to the consumer.
Homeowners can get more information on how to appeal a flood zone designation, get a flood map, and find answers to other questions, by going to https://www.fema.gov/information-homeowners. Homeowners can also call 1-877-FEMA-MAP (1-877-336-2627) to get information on appealing a flood zone designation.
