UPDATE: We just met with UGI: the Spring Street Project, phase 1, will start tomorrow, Wednesday, August 9th. They will be starting at East Street and working their way up towards Palmer. They will need to come into your house at some point. My understanding is that if your gas meter is in the house they will be moving it outside; if it is already outside someone will be coming in to turn the gas on again. They all have proper ID etc.
The first phase is expected to take approximately 3 weeks; then they will begin on the 2nd phase, past East Street up to Seventh Street; the second phase is expected to take about a week.
The 2nd Street Stormwater Project will start Monday, August 7th. Please observe all NO PARKING signs when posted. This site and Facebook: West Easton Borough, PA, will be updated as soon as we have any further information.
There is to be NO PARKING on either side of Second Street, between Keystone and Center, for the duration of this project.
Advanced Disposal has been alerted to this project and will be picking up the 300 block of Second Street garbage in the alleys until this project is completed.
The first day of school in the Wilson Area School District is Monday, August 28th. If you’re not sure when to stop for a school bus please watch the little video linked below.
2017 SUMMER ROADWORK
7th/Spring Street, from East to Iron (This will be done sometime in August; a different type of work is being done here.)
Swimming pools, hot tubs, spas or similar receptacles capable to retain water of 24” in depth or greater shall be completely surrounded by a fence of barrier at least 48” in height. Please continue to the link below for more information.
Letters will be going out to homeowners in West Easton with curbs/sidewalks that need work/repairs.
“All sidewalks, walkways, stairs, driveways, parking spaces and similar areas shall be kept in proper state of repair, and maintained free from hazardous conditions.” Section 302.3 of the International Property Maintenace Code, adopted by the Borough of West Easton.
If your sidealks are in need of repair, please take care of it!
Due to safety concerns for larger vehicles (buses, fire trucks, delivery trucks etc.), and as a courtesy to the pedestrian and vehicular traffic, street-side tree trimming needs to be routinely performed by the property owner. This also permits the proper maintenance of roads. To reduce the frequency of pruning, trees should be generally pruned beyond the curb or, to the edge of the right of way or, or a minimum of 3’ from the edge of the paved road surface maintaining a minimum clearance of 12’ above the road surface. Clearance above sidewalks should be a minimum of 8’ above the sidewalk surface.
The Fire Chief has turned over a list of properties with trees that are hanging too low into the streets. Letters will be going out to property owners soon. Please check your property and if you fall into this category take care of your trees/overgrowth as soon as possible. (On another note, sidewalks should be cleared for people to be able to easily pass through as well.)
