It’s that time of the year to get out and enjoy the weather. If you plan on having a bonfire/fire-pit please remember to apply for a recreational burn permit at the Borough Office.
Please remember to lock your windows and doors when you leave your residence now that the weather has broke and you can open them up to enjoy the fresh air.
The ever popular IRS scam is still going around. The IRS will not call you and threaten you with a lawsuit or jail time. DO NOT GIVE ANYONE INFORMATION OVER THE PHONE THAT YOU DID NOT CALL!!!!!!
