While you prepare for summer ~ yard work, vacations, etc., the Borough of Boyertown is also busy making plans for many projects and improvements. We did our spring cleaning on Saturday, May 5 with a greatly supported clean up day in town. Plans are underway for a community/borough wide yard sale tentatively set for August. Information will be posted on the website so stay tuned.
Please be reminded that the borough ordinance requires all persons living in the borough to keep their lawns mowed and their sidewalks clear of weeds. Trees, shrubbery and plantings are to be trimmed so as not to obstruct sidewalks or roads or to be deemed a breeding area and therefore a detriment to the public’s health. While this is a borough ordinance and public safety issue, it also shows respect for each person’s own property and respect for your neighbors and community.
Our “Sensational Summer” events were started in April with our fifth annual “Earthfest” and our hugely popular “Fun Days in the Park” in June! We have two movies scheduled this summer along with five Pool Dances. If you did not receive a copy of the brochure with the “Calendar of Events”, please stop in at Borough Hall for your copy or check the borough website.
The curfew for children under the age of 18 is 9:30 p.m. Exceptions are made if the child is going to or from work or is on his way home from a school function.
The Boyertown Rotary and Lions Clubs are working together on a walking trail in the Boyertown Community Park beginning mid-July. The first phase, which will include the first half of the mile long trail, an exercise area, and a Frisbee Golf Course, should be completed by the end of summer. This project is made possible by a bequest to the Lions and Rotary Clubs from the Estate of Francis Fenstermacher.
Plans are currently underway for the repaving of Seventh Street and Berks Street. This project will begin soon after school lets out.
