Snow & Ice Removal

Due to the nature of winter storm Stella, the Borough has extended the requirements for removing ice and snow from sidewalks, to this Saturday evening, 18 March.

Under normal conditions sidewalks are required to be cleared within 24 hours of the end of the storm. The heavy, icy precipitation we received was certainly a challenge. And it is frustrating when our efforts to plow streets require re-clearing of some sidewalk sections. We get it and we empathize.   Continue reading Snow & Ice Removal

Township Line Rd Road Closure

As part of our continuing infrastructure improvement program, Aqua Pennsylvania (AQUA) will replace the existing water main on Township Line Road between Old York Road and Summit Avenue.

The $652,000 project is scheduled to begin next week, February 27, 2017 with the installation of 3,200 feet of 8-inch ductile iron pipe, with completion expected in June. The new main will replace the existing 8-inch and 4-inch cast iron mains. It is important to note that the trench will be covered with temporary black top at the end of each work day. Once all of the activity described has been completed, permanent restoration will follow in about 30 to 60 days. Continue reading Township Line Rd Road Closure

Jenkintown Community Playground Fundraiser

The Jenkintown Community Playground is celebrating it’s 15th Anniversary!  You can commemorate this important milestone with a one of a kind T-shirt and/or Tote bag. 

Fifteen years ago, over six hundred volunteers came out to build a safe, handicap accessible playground that fosters imaginative play and developmental learning for the children of Jenkintown and the surrounding communities. The playground was built with $120,000 raised largely through individual donations and the generosity of community groups and businesses. The Jenkintown Community Playground is truly one of a kind and continues to be maintained through volunteer efforts and local fundraising. Questions or interested in volunteering?  Contact Kieranfarrell76@gmail.com.
