Road Projects:

 

 

Blacklatch Lane

The week of August 24, we will be replacing a stormwater line across Blacklatch Lane. Between the hours of 6:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., the road will be closed between Farmhouse Lane and Candlewycke Drive.  The road will be open in the evening.

The job will be completed within two days, provided there are no unforeseen problems. 

We will work with you to get to your residence and do our best to accommodate your needs. 

Thank you for your patience on this matter while the Township improves and betters Lower Swatara.

Also, in 2 – 3 weeks, a contractor will be replacing a portion of the sewer line between Candlewycke Drive and Farmhouse Lane.  This will require 2 – 3 days of worktime.  Again, we will do our best to accommodate your needs and give you access to your residence.  Minor delays may occur.

If you have any questions about these projects, please phone Dan Wagner, Public Works Superintendent, at 939-9377.

 

Pennsylvania Avenue


The Township has hired a contractor to replace a portion of the sewer lines on Pennsylvania Avenue within the next 2 – 3 weeks.

The contractor will have equipment on-site and will be using the cul-de-sacs as a staging area. 

Minor delays may occur. 

We will work to get you to your residence and best accommodate your needs. 

Thank you for your patience on this matter while the Township improves and betters Lower Swatara. 

The same contractor has been hired to replace the water line by United Water.  This will occur at the same time. 

If you have any questions about these projects, please phone Dan Wagner, Public Works Superintendent, at 939-9377.

NO GRASS CLIPPINGS

IN THE STREET!

 

The Police Department receives complaints every spring/summer season regarding grass clippings being blown into or dumped onto the street.

Placing grass clippings in the street is a violation of Township ordinance, and can result in clogged sewer drains.

 

The Police Department, upon receiving a complaint or observing this violation, can cite the home owner/ business for this violation.

The Township is requesting all property owners to dispose of their grass clippings in a  timely manner after cutting grass.

 

Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
