Snow Emergency Declaration

In anticipation of the upcoming snow storm Perkasie Borough has declared a snow emergency.  

* Per Borough Ordinance 180-18.2, you must remove your vehicle from the street during a snowstorm of three inches or more in order to facilitate safe and effective snow plowing.

* Please be considerate and do not shovel or plow the snow from your driveway or sidewalk into the street.

* Sidewalk shoveling should be completed after the snow has stopped.

* Place trash cans and recycling containers so as not to interfere with snow plows or salt trucks. The Borough will not replace them.

* CLEAR SNOW FROM AROUND FIRE HYDRANTS

* Remove snow to keep open the storm water inlet near your property- keeping it open will prevent flooding and icing conditions on the street and surrounding properties.

* This declared emergency will be in effect until rescinded by the proper Borough Officials.  Please check the Borough Website for updates.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
