           The Public Works Department performs many duties for our municipality.  Some of these duties include tree preservation and tree removal including stump removal (located within the Borough's right-of-ways and public property), signs, patching roads, barricade placement for special events, storm and sanitary sewer maintenance as well as maintaining all pumping stations.  Also, the department maintains all traffic lights, municipal properties and parks, snow removal, bulk pick-ups, leaf pick-ups and Senior Citizen pick-ups.  We also operate our compactor facility and maintain our leaf and brush piles.  The entire fleet of town owned vehicles including Police, Fire Prevention, Rescue Squad and Public Works are all maintained in house.  We are constantly striving to improve our services to all residents and welcome all inquiries and concerns.
