When you're washing your car in the driveway, remember you're not just washing your car in the driveway.

Description: Z:\Borough Web Site\csb\MC900280680[1].gif

All the soap, scum, and oily grit run along the curb. Then into the storm drain and directly into our lakes, streams, and coastal waters including the Chesapeake Bay. And that causes pollution which is unhealthy for fish. So how do you know avoid this whole mess? Easy. Wash your car on grass or gravel instead of on the street. Or better yet, take it to a car wash where the water gets treated and recycled.

Notice from PP&L

Please do not post signs on telephone poles.

It weakens the poles and poses injury hazards. State law makes it a summary offense to drive a nail or tack, or attach any metal or hard substance, into an electric utility pole.

PP&L Electric Utilities will take down any unauthorized signs on its poles and could take legal action if necessary.

If you have put a sign on one of their poles, kindly please take it down.

BRUSH PICK UP

From April through September monthly pickup of brush will be done by the Borough Department of Public Works.  Brush must be left on the yard (not in the street or storm swales) at the edge of the property and cut to manageable size.  Only brush cut by the property owner will be removed.  If you hire a service to trim your trees or brush, they must remove the brush themselves.  We apologize but we cannot schedule or guarantee a time for pickup.  It will occur as the crew has time between projects.

CLARKS SUMMIT SEWER BILLING

Beginning in October 2013, the Clarks Summit Borough took over the sewer billing process.  The billing will be quarterly with a monthly option.  Home owners will receive a quarterly invoice.  On the bottom of the invoice there will be three detachable perforations.  The first perforation on the bottom left of the invoice will be labeled "Payment #1" and this will be for the residents who choose to pay amount listed for the full quarter.  If you choose the quarterly payment, you will not need to use the other two perforations on the invoice.  For residents who choose to continue with monthly payments, we ask that residents return each payment stub with their monthly payment by the 20th of each month.

  In an effort to make payments more convenient for our residents, we have added ACH (automatic payment) which allows home owners to have the sewer bill automatically deducted from their bank account quarterly or monthly.  In addition, home owners can also access the online credit card payment option which will accept payments from Visa, Mastercard and Discover card.

Residents continue to have the option to pay by using the Borough Drop Box located next to the front door of the Borough Building at 304 S. State Street.  Residents can mail the payment into the Borough, and as always cash is accepted at the Borough Office which is on the second floor of the Borough Building at 304 South State Street, Clarks Summit, PA  18411.

For more information feel free to call the Borough Office at 570-586-9316, M-F, 9am-3pm.  


SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING FOR THE RESIDENTS IN THE BOROUGH OF CLARKS SUMMIT
