PERKASIE POLICE PARTICIPATE IN “NO SHAVE NOVEMBER”

The Perkasie Police Department are participating in No Shave November again this year. No Shave November encourages participants to put down their razor for 30 days as they raise awareness and funds for cancer research.

In 2015, the Police Department engaged in a good natured online contest and members of the public made donations to their favorite officer. They raised over $3,000 and Officer Brun, who raised the most funds, was treated to a luxury shave by Perkasie’s Styles Salon.  

When you see bearded officers this November, please consider making a donation at www.no-shave.org. Collection boxes will also be stationed at Perkasie and Sellersville Borough Halls and the Perkasie Police Department building.

At the public Borough Council meeting on October 17, Perkasie Mayor John Hollenbach issued the following proclamation for No Shave November 2016:  no-shave-november-proclamation

ANNUAL LEAF COLLECTION BEGINS OCTOBER 17

The Public Works Department announced that the annual leaf collection  program will begin October 17.

Residents are reminded to rake their leaves to the curb for pick up and to be careful not to include rocks, large sticks or other debris in the pile that would damage the large vacuums the department uses to collect the leaves. In areas where there are no curbs please be sure to have the leaves raked to within 5 feet of the roadway edge to make the collection process as efficient as possible.

 Please do not block storm drains with piles of leaves. Cars parked on top of the piles will make it impossible for our crews to pick up the leaves as we make our rounds. There is also a danger of fire, if cars with a hot exhaust system are parked on top of a pile of dry leaves. There will be no call backs for piles under cars, so please be sure to have all piles accessible for pick up.
