Lewisburg Borough has cancelled their August Community Development/Planning Committee meeting. The Committee had anticipated discussing a new version of the draft Non-Discrimination Ordinance this month. However, the size of the anticipated crowd at the Committee meeting required the Borough to find an alternate location for this meeting. That alternate location also appeared too small to accommodate the crowd expected to attend. As such, a new location for the meeting was secured, but the new facility was not available for the normal Community Development/Planning Committee meeting date and time. An alternate day and time was selected for the Committee meeting, but unfortunately the selected evening conflicted with a previously scheduled event at a nearby organization. That organization’s leadership was concerned that attendees at the Committee meeting would fill all available parking spaces in the area preventing their members from attending their organization’s event. In addition, some members of the organization also wanted to attend the Committee meeting to participate in the Non-Discrimination Ordinance discussion. Accordingly, the Committee meeting has been cancelled and the Borough will likely schedule a special Community Development/Planning Committee meeting later in August or in September to discuss the draft Non-Discrimination Ordinance. Once a date, time, and location is finalized, it will be announced on the Borough’s Facebook page and the Borough’s website.
The Borough Office, Streets Department, Refuse Department and Recycling Center will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th.
Have a wonderful Holiday!
The Borough Office will be closed to the public on Wednesday, May 2nd, due to the office reconstruction project. The contractor will be laying asphalt in the parking lot near the new entrance ramp making it inaccessible.
This also means that the Borough’s Tax Collector will not be available on this day.
Thank you for understanding, and we appreciate your patience!
Just a reminder that the Borough encourages residents to participate in the annual spring pick-up of brush, tree trimmings and leaves. The Public Works Department follows the daily street maintenance schedule and these materials are only collected on the day the street is posted for no parking from 7 AM to Noon.
See Spring Brush Pick-Up Press Release for details.
The new Borough Office entrance is located along the western side of the building and can be accessed from the Borough’s parking lot via a new wooden ramp that is located within the deck that overlooks Hufnagle Park. The ramp leads you to a new entrance door and a new building lobby. From the lobby you can access the Council Chambers, a new handicap accessible restroom, and a security window with a staff member ready to assist you!
Reminder: Meetings scheduled to be held in the Council Chambers between February 21st and March 19th have been relocated to the Training/Classroom on the first floor of the Fire Department Support Center at 239 North Fifth Street.
The Tax Collector has also been relocated to this location from 10 AM to 2 PM on the following Wednesdays: February 21st, February 28th and March 7th.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
