Lewisburg Borough Council plans to discuss the Human Relations Ordinance at their April 9th Work Session to be held at 6:30 pm in Council Chambers at the Borough Office, 55 South Fifth Street, Lewisburg PA 17837. At the links below, please find an updated draft version of the proposed ordinance and Questions/Answers from the Special Community Development-Planning Committee meeting held in late 2018 where this topic was previously discussed.
Borough residents are encouraged to participate in the annual spring (brush, tree trimmings and leaves) pick-up scheduled for the week of April 1st through the 5th.
The Borough Public Works Department will be following the daily street maintenance schedule in its efforts to collect brush, tree trimmings and leaves. These materials will only be collected on the day the street is posted for no parking from 7 AM to Noon, and any subsequent debris left unattended will be considered litter.
Tree limbs and tree debris should be no larger than 4” in diameter and cut to manageable lengths. It should be placed between the curb and the sidewalk where appropriate. Leaves should be managed in the same manner as fall collection (placed in the gutter along the street) and not co-mingled with limbs and brush.
The Borough hopes this annual spring pick-up will help alleviate the hassle of collecting the material individually and having to schedule with the municipal brush pile times of operation. (Brush pile times of operation: Wednesdays 8 AM to 4 PM and Saturdays 8 AM to Noon.)
Additional questions can be directed to the Borough Office at (570) 523-3614 or feel free to stop in at the Borough Office located at 55 South Fifth Street, Lewisburg.
