Jenkintown Annual 4th of July Celebration!

The Jenkintown Volunteer Fire Department is once again proud to sponsor the Borough’s Annual Fourth of July celebration on Monday July 4th.  The rain date for the event will be Saturday July 9th

The starting time for this year’s parade will be 11:30 A.M.  The parade will start at Town Square and move up Leedom Street to Hillside Avenue.  From Hillside Avenue the parade will continue to Walnut Street, going up Walnut Street to West Avenue before returning back to Town Square.  Parade line-up will be on Leedom Street along the firehouse and on Summit Avenue in front of Borough Hall. 

We hope to see everyone out at the parade!

Borough Hall Closed Today

This morning PECO informed the Borough that the transformer servicing Borough Hall did not upgrade correctly. PECO will begin work replacing this transformer around 9:30 am. The Police Department is fully staffed and continuing daily operations. Both the emergency and non-emergency numbers will be functioning on emergency power.

The Borough Administrative Offices were just informed that will be losing power around 9:30 am for what is an indeterminate amount of time. All power (computer systems and telephone communication) will not be functioning.
Due to the loss of phone service and computer access, Borough Hall will be closed today June 14th. Borough Hall is expected to be open tomorrow morning, June 15th at 8 am. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause as this was not a scheduled procedure.
